Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong Says He’s “Renouncing” His U.S. Citizenship Following The Repeal Of Roe v. Wade

During Green Day’s June 24 show in London, UK, Billie Joe Armstrong said that he is “renouncing” his U.S. citizenship following the Supreme Court’s egregious decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. He told the crowd the following:

“Fuck America. I’m fucking renouncing my citizenship. I’m fucking coming here. There’s just too much fucking stupid in the world to go back to that miserable fucking excuse for a country. Oh, I’m not kidding. You’re going to get a lot of me in the coming days.”

He went on to say “fuck the Supreme Court of America” before performing “American Idiot” and also called the justices “pricks” during a performance of “Hitchin’ A Ride.”
