Green Day Rocker Billie Joe Armstrong Renouncing His Citizenship over Roe Reversal: ‘F**k America’
After the landmark Supreme Court decision overturning the long-standing 1973 Roe v. Wade, Armstrong announced he was “renouncing his citizenship” in the aftermath. At a Friday night concert in London, Armstrong made his personal declaration:
“There’s too much f***ing stupid in the world.”
He was met with thunderous applause after he promised the crown he was going move to the UK. The Daily Mail reports he added: “Oh, I’m not kidding, you’re going to get a lot of me in the coming days.”
Fans at the concert claim he told the crown “F**K the Supreme Court of America,” before playing American Idiot, which the band has previously said was written out of anger about not being represented by leadership. Armstrong has never hid his political leftism.
In 2016 reported by Breitbart News, he declared Donald Trump was akin to Hitler in an interview.
“The worst problem I see about Trump is who his followers are,” Armstrong told the magazine. “I actually feel bad for them, because they’re poor, working-class people who can’t get a leg up. They’re pissed off and he’s preyed on their anger. He just said, ‘You have no options and I’m the only one, and I’m going to take care of it myself.’ I mean, that’s f*cking Hitler, man!”
