Billie Joe Armstrong Renounces His Citizenship In Protest.

Joining in on a long list of artists, the Green Day frontman has reacted to the latest move by U.S. courts.

Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong has expressed his dismay at the decision made by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. “Fuck America, I’m fucking renouncing my citizenship,” Armstrong shouted his disgust during a concert at London Stadium on Friday.

The rock star expressed his disgust at the majority-conservative court ruling that abortion rights are no longer protected in the United States.

“There’s too much fucking stupid in the world to go back to that miserable fucking excuse for a country,” Billie Joe declared. “Oh, I’m not kidding. You’re going to get a lot of me in the coming days.”

Armstrong isn’t the first artist to speak out about the controversial decision. Rage Against The Machine,  Jack White, Cyndi Lauper,  Olivia Rodrigo, Halsey, plus many more have been vocal on the issue. American country singer Kasey Musgraves also expressed her dismay. She recently declared in front of a Glastonbury crowd: “Honestly I’m thinking about never going back to America.” She confirmed later through her set – “I meant what I said, it’s a scary time to be an American right now.”

Green Day are currently on tour in the UK for their rescheduled Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer.

Keep Up With Green Day (if you can)…
