Following the Supreme Court’s decision to reverse Roe v. Wade, Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong declared he was ‘renouncing his citizenship’.
This week, it was revealed that the American Supreme Court had chosen to reverse the Roe v. Wade ruling from fifty years prior, ending the guarantee of abortion rights. Viola Davis, Billie Eilish, Michelle Obama, and Lizzo are just a few of the famous people and public figures that have expressed their shock at the decision.
What Did The Green Day Singer say?
Armstrong yelled “F*** America” and announced to the crowd that he was moving to the UK during his show on Friday in London.
“There’s just too much f***ing stupid in the world to go back to that miserable f***ing excuse for a country”.
He continued, “Oh, I’m not kidding, you’re going to get a lot of me in the coming days”.
The lead singer of Jesus of Suburbia has previously expressed his political beliefs and protested using his platform and during performance. He has criticized former US President Donald Trump for “holding half the country hostage,” and he wrote an entire album called American Idiot to criticize George W. Bush and the Iraq War.
Armstrong joined a number of other famous people who have spoken out against the decision, many of whom did so during their Glastonbury performances.
