Watch as Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong promises to renounce his American citizenship over the overturning of Roe v. Wade

Millions of people worldwide, including thousands of musicians, have been reacting to what went down in the US last week.

But whoooooooo boy, Biille. I know you’re upset about that bonkers, regressive Supreme Court decision, but if you say something like this, there are ‘Muricans who aren’t going to be happy with you. Was this done in the heat of the moment or are you really going to give up your citizenship and move to the UK?

I quote: “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.”
