Billie Joe Armstrong brought up the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs Wade from 50 years ago, which ended guaranteed abortion rights on the state side.

The Green Day singer, 50, was so furious with the decision that he told a crowd in London on Friday that he was planning to move to the UK and said: “F*** America .”

The musician told the audience, “F*** America. I’m giving up my citizenship. I’m coming here.

“There are too many idiots in the world to go back to that miserable excuse for a country.”

He added: “Oh, I’m not kidding, you’ll get a lot of mine in the coming days.”

This is not the first time he has used the stage to express his displeasure on political issues.

Earlier, he criticized former President Donald Trump for “holding half of the country hostage”.

His album titled American Idiot was also created as a criticism of another former president, George W. Bush, and the Iraq War.

And he’s not the only celebrity to make the latest decision, with the likes of Billie Eilish, Viola Davis and Michelle Obama all expressing outrage.

Pop icon Madonna, 63, also spoke out about Sunday’s ruling, admitting she was in “deep despair” and “fear” for her four daughters.

She wrote on her Instagram: “I woke up [Friday] to the horrifying news that Roe v. Wade has been overturned and the law has decided that we no longer have the right to be women in our bodies.

“This decision has plunged me and every other woman in this country into deep despair. Now the supreme court has decided that women’s rights are no longer constitutional rights. In fact, they are. I have less rights [than] a gun. I am so scared for my daughters. “

Olivia Rodrigo also took to the stage at Glastonbury over the weekend and was joined by Lily Allen, who dedicated her song F*** You to the Supreme Court Justices.

The American singer told her fans before singing: “I am devastated and terrified and so many women and so many girls will die from this.

“I wanted to dedicate this follow-up song to the five members of the Supreme Court who showed us that at the end of the day, they really don’t consider freedom.

“This song is addressed to the Judges.”
