Roe v. Wade: Billie Jean King, Sue Bird react to SCOTUS decision
Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong has said that he's moving to the UK and renouncing his US citizenship in the wake of the Roe v Wade decision.
The 50-year-old frontman of the legendary punk rock band was playing a huge concert at the London Stadium on Friday, just hours after the Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v Wade and handed abortion laws back to individual states.
It's feared that the move will put millions of women's lives at risk as numerous states are likely to outlaw abortions.
Speaking to the crowd in London, the American Idiot singer said: "F**k America. I'm f**king renouncing my citizenship. There’s too much f***ing stupid in the world to go back to that miserable f**king excuse for a country
"Oh, I’m not kidding, you’re going to get a lot of me in the coming days.”
\u201cSo ol Billie Joe Armstrong is renouncing his citizenship and says he's moving to the UK. Calls America Stupid because of the overturning of Roe. Apparently alot of celebs are saying the same thing. I remember when 1000's of them were gonna move to Canada, but not one did. \ud83d\ude06 \ud83e\udd23\u201d
