The questionable act occurred at the Welcome to Rockville festival in Daytona Beach, Florida, on November 11. The band was performing the cover of Rage Against Machine’s ‘Wake Up.’

Brass Against’s performance was being live-streamed on Twitch as well, which had to be cut short following Urista’s unexpected actions.

Former med-student Sophia Urista was a contestant on the 11th season of The Voice in 2016. Before performing on the singing reality show, she was mentored by Quincy Jones and performed at the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival.

Urista had mentioned prior that she came from a “very conservative family. She has gained massive recognition since becoming the vocalist for Brass Against. Some of the band’s most popular songs include The Pot, Killing the Name, and Wake Up.

The singer is now engaged to Jessica King, a fitness instructor known for The Jess King Experience cycling class series. Sophia Urista has amassed a large following of 58,000 followers on Instagram as well.

Reacting to the unforeseen act, several netizens took to Twitter to express their disgust. Tweets read:

Band responds to hate they have received online

As the incident unfolded, leaving the internet scarred, the band took to Twitter to explain themselves. They said in the tweet that the lead singer got “carried away” and the incident would not occur again.

Their tweet read:

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.

Since the video went viral online, the band has been apologizing to several people on Twitter by replying to their tweets, as well.
