Green Day frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong, told the audience gathered at his London concert that he is “renouncing” his United States citizenship in protest over the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade. This is a very clear signal from the singer, who joins other celebrities in the judgment’s criticism.

Armstrong was performing in the London Stadium, just a few hours after the judgment was passed. The decision meant that abortion was no more legal. And the 50-year-old rock star lashed out at the decision.

“F*** America. I’m f***ing renouncing my citizenship. I’m f***ing coming here.”

The crowd cheered in unison to indicate their approval of this decision. But the 50-year-old didn’t stop there. He went on,

“There’s just too much f***ing stupid in the world to go back to that miserable f***ing excuse for a country. Oh, I’m not kidding. You’re going to get a lot of me in the coming days.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Armstrong has previously described himself as politically independent. But that hasn’t stopped him from calling out politicians for their brazen acts. The politicians who have been at the receiving end of his criticism include former presidents George W. Bush and Donald Trump. He even showed his anger at Ted Cruz, following the recent mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, when he performed in front of a banner reading “F*** Ted Cruz.”
