"BYU" and "Porn Kills Love" were two messages that may have attracted the attention of Utahns Wednesday during Neon Tree's performance on "Late Night with Seth Meyers."
Two members of the Provo band, bassist Branden Campbell and drummer Elaine Bradley, sported T-shirts supporting Brigham Young University and Fight the New Drug, a Utah-based nonprofit dedicated to raising awareness about the harmful effects of pornography.
Bradley, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, wore a shirt emblazoned with the words "Porn Kills Love." The drummer, a mother of two who is expecting another child in September, posted on Instagram regarding her clothing choice.
Campbell, also an LDS Church member, sported a BYU T-shirt Wednesday. At the premiere of "Meet the Mormons" in October 2014, Campbell said he has the opportunity to talk about the LDS Church as he travels with the band.
"One thing that happens time after time as my band tours all over the world is they say, ‘You’re from Utah; are you Mormon?’ " Campbell told the Deseret News. "We get to answer a lot of questions about that."
Tom Holmoe, BYU sports athletic director, spotted the BYU shirt on the NBC program and posted a picture on Twitter.
