Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong Says He’s ‘Renouncing’ U.S. Citizenship

Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong has said that he is renouncing his U.S. citizenship in protest against the Supreme Court’s decision to repeal Roe v. Wade.

“F–k America. I’m f–king renouncing my citizenship. I’m f–king coming here,” the Green Day frontman told the crowd while performing in a Hella Mega tour concert at London Stadium in the U.K. on Friday.

“There’s just too much f–king stupid in the world to go back to that miserable f–king excuse for a country,” he added.

Armstrong made his opinion public within hours of the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, eliminating the federal constitutional right to an abortion that Americans have relied on for nearly 50 years.

Following his remarks, Armstrong played the song, “American Idiot.”

A number of American artists, including Phoebe Bridgers, Billie Eilish, Kendrick Lamar and Olivia Rodrigo, have openly criticized the Supreme Court decision.
