“I have always pushed the limits in music and on stage. That night, I pushed the limits too far,” she went on and added: “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.”


The singer concluded her note, saying, “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.”

The awkward exhibition by the Brass Against frontwoman at the Welcome to Rockville festival in Daytona recently stunned the crowd. A male fan was brought up on stage while the band was singing a cover of Rage Against the Machine's 'Wake Up'.

While the video clip shows him lying on the ground with what appears to be a can over his head as Sophia Urista unbuttoned her pants and bent over his face, it's unclear if the fan knew what he was being brought on stage for

People who were within a few feet away captured the unsettling stunt on camera as it unfolded.


The man then stood up and spit some urine in the direction of the spectators. Following reaction from fans, the band apologized for the incident on Sophia's behalf on social media. Twitter didn't stay behind and started responding over the issue. Surprisingly the fans were mostly welcoming Sophia and almost forgiving her. 

A Twitter user said, " Shoulda been me" Another user showed support to Sophia saying, "Clearly the legal action is spooking you and no one can really fault you for that, but I hope you know in your heart that you did nothing wrong! You peed on someone who volunteered to be peed on".

One Twitter user commented, "People can be shocked & outraged by too many things these days. The bottom line is that what occurred, did so between to consenting adults, he wasn't complaining so everyone needs to chill and move on. Apologise if you must but it's now a part of rock history!"
