Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong has said he will renounce his US citizenship and move to England because he is so upset by the Supreme Court’s overturning of the historic abortion case Roe v . Wade.

The “American Idiot” singer made the comments in front of a crowd at the band’s concert in London on Friday. “Fuck America, I’m giving up my citizenship,” Armstrong said. “I’m coming here.”

“There are just too many stupid f—ings in the world to go back to that miserable f—ing excuse for a country,” Armstrong added. “Oh, I’m not kidding. You’re going to get a lot of me in the days to come.”

Armstrong, 50, has been the leader of Green Day since 1987. He is among a number of liberal celebrities who have expressed anger over the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe. Wade. The decision effectively ended the recognition of a constitutional right to abortion and gave each state the power to permit, limit or ban the practice altogether.

Armstrong went on to hit America at the Green Day show in Huddersfield, England the following day, according to the Daily Mail. He called the justices “assholes” and said “f— the Supreme Court of America”.

It’s not the first time that Armstrong has expressed his dislike for the American song “American Idiot” by In Green Day in 2004, the band lambasted the American media.

“I don’t wanna be an American idiot/ A nation controlled by the media/ The information age of hysteria/ It’s going to fool America,” Armstrong sings in the song.

Armstrong has also been candid about this dislike of former President Donald Trump. He sang “No Trump, No KKK, no fascist USA” during the band’s performance of “Bang Bang” at the American Music Awards in 2016.

Armstrong also compared Trump to Hitler in an interview with Kerrang! magazine that same year.

“The worst problem I see about Trump is who his supporters are,” the singer told the magazine. “I actually feel bad for them, because they’re poor working class people who can’t get up. They’re just pissed off and he feeds off their anger.”

He added: “He just said, ‘You have no options and I’m the only one, and I’ll take care of it myself. I mean, he’s the f—king Hitler, man!”
