Green Day’s singer Billie Joe Armstrong said he will renounce his U.S. citizenship. Armstrong’s decision is due to the recent Supreme Court ruling regarding the Roe v. Wade abortion case.
The vocalist said he will move to England and said he is “very annoyed” by the decision of the Supreme Court. The comments, picked up by Fox News, were given during a concert 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,” the singer stressed.
“Oh, I’m not kidding. You’re going to get a lot of me in the coming days,” the singer stressed.
But Armstrong had already expressed his contempt for American culture. Fox News recalled that in the song ‘American Idiot’, released in 2004, by his band Green Day, he criticizes the American media and says he doesn’t want to be an American.

“Don’t wanna be an American idiot! Don’t want a nation under the new media,” Armstrong sings in the song.
What does the court ruling Billie Joe is talking about really mean?
The Supreme Court decided this week to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, an action that leads at least 20 states in the country to ban or restrict access to abortion.
An article in El American explains that “criminal liability for a woman seeking an abortion will depend on the abortion policies her state implements following the Supreme Court’s decision. There is nothing yet to prevent legislators from passing laws requiring prosecution of women who sought abortions.”
