Green Day frontman may renounce his U.S. citizenship due to abortion rights denial | Marca

Billie Joe Armstrong is very affected by the current socio-political climate, so much that he is renouncing his United States citizenship and looking to become a British citizen.

No abortion rights for women

After the events of the United States Supreme Court ruling on overturning the right for women to have abortions there has been massive backlash from citizens from all walks of life, including many celebrities, activists, musicians, artists, politicians and more.

He Just had enough

The “American Idiot” composer had a concert recently and addressed the crowd saying that he was renouncing his citizenship.

Too much stupid in the world

“There’s just too much stupid in the world to go back to that miserable excuse for a country.” The singer gives a word of warning, too — “You’re going to get a lot of me in the coming days.”

A little before performing on Friday he got the news of the SCOTUS decision and we went to the crowd and poured all his sentiments of frustration and anger about how could it be that the country that stands for freedom may be so divided to limit the rights of women.

No Trump, No KKK, No fascist USA

In 2016 he had a performance on the AMA’s when he had a chant on live television that spoke ill about the political turmoil of the time, the crowd chanted “No Trump, No KKK, No fascist USA.”

Protests

Protests have surged since Friday and there have been all kinds of demonstrations, from activists looking to have a pacific solution, to even having the police break up a protest by pushing celebrities, such as the Full House actress Jodie Sweetin who was pushed and shoved to the pavement by an LAPD officer.
