Billie Joe Armstrong is the frontman of the band Green Day, which released its iconic album American Idiot in 2004 and made numerous political and Bush-era criticisms. Armstrong, however, has now elevated that sentiment. In light of the recent Roe v. Wade verdict by the Supreme Court, the rock star said at a recent concert in London that he is enunciating his citizenship in the United States.
Billie Joe Armstrong is the frontman of the band Green Day, The 50-year-old Armstrong is upset at the decision to eliminate federal safeguards for abortion and yells “Fuck America” in protest. He said, “The world is filled with too much fucking idiocy.”
During the London performance, Armstrong also announced that he will be relocating to the U.K., which was met with enthusiastic acclaim from the audience.
Since the 1973 precedent was overturned and a woman’s right to choose is now completely unconstitutional, many Americans probably share Armstrong’s sentiments. Green Day performed in front of a background that read “Fuck Ted Cruz,” a reference to the Republican senator from Texas, at a previous performance this month. Trump was “keeping the country hostage,” he added,
America, fuck you. My citizenship is being renounced for real. On stage in London on Friday, June 24, Armstrong proclaimed, “I’m fucking coming here. There is simply too much fucking stupidity in the world to return to that pathetic fucking disgrace for a nation. And I’m not joking, he continued. In the upcoming days, you’ll hear a lot from me.
Fans at a concert Armstrong gave the next day, on Saturday, June 25, in Huddersfield, England, claim he said, “Fuck the Supreme Court of America,” before starting to play “American Idiot.” Armstrong proceeded to express himself emotionally in this way throughout the performance. Additionally, he called the Supreme Court justices “pricks” in his statement.
Many others expressed their support for his choice on social media, promising to assist him with packing or buy him drinks if he ever moved to the UK. Numerous Americans protesting across the Atlantic were being shoved by police and being teargassed while Armstrong was saying what he had to say.
