On Tuesday, Sophia Urista, the frontwoman for the rock group Brass Against, apologized for urinating on a fan during her performance last Thursday night.. The 36-year-old rocker was performing a cover of Rage Against the Machine’s “Wake Up” at the Welcome to Rockville festival in Daytona, Florida, when she informed the crowd, “I gotta pee, and I can’t make it to the bathroom. So we might as well make a show out of it.”
Enticing a male fan to come on stage and lie down, she proceeded to squat over his face and urinate on him. The Miami Herald reported, “After finishing, Urista pulls up her trousers, walks away from the man and yells, ‘Security, get him the [bleep] out of here!’”
Prior to her golden moment, Urista reportedly stated, “Get my man with the can on his head ready, ’cause we’re going to bring him onstage and I’ma p*** in this mother******’s mouth,” according to the Independent.
A complaint was filed on the Facebook account of the Daytona Beach Police; the police told the informant to file a report. Daytona Beach Police spokesman Messod Bendayan said, “I did get one like that and I told her to file a report and she did.”
Bendayan told the Miami Herald on Monday, “No incident report was created because we didn’t actually speak to the reporting party. She spoke to a county dispatcher initially. We tried calling her back twice and received no response. Beyond that, we’re not giving any further comment on this matter.
Rockville producer Danny Wimmer denounced Urista’s act, saying, “We do not condone the inappropriate behavior that was displayed and have addressed this directly with the band, as well as other artists to ensure something like this doesn’t happen again.”
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported that it is illegal to “expose his or her sexual organs in public or on the private premises of another, or so near thereto as to be seen from such private premises, in a vulgar or indecent manner.”
For her apology, Urista wrote on Instagram:
I have always pushed the limits in music and on stage. That night, I pushed the limits too far. I love my family, the band, and the fans more than anything and I know that some were hurt or offended by what I did. I apologize to them and want them to know that I didn’t mean to hurt them. I am not a shock artist. I always want to put the music first. I’m grateful for all of your continued love and support.
Last Friday, Brass Against tweeted a quasi-apology for the incident, writing that Urista got “carried away” as they explained, “We had a great time last night at Welcome to Rockville. Sophia got carried away. That’s not something the rest of us expected, and it’s not something you’ll see again at our shows. Thanks for bringing it last night, Daytona.”
We had a great time last night at Welcome to Rockville. Sophia got carried away. That's not something the rest of us expected, and it's not something you'll see again at our shows. Thanks for bringing it last night, Daytona.
