Billie Joe Armstrong has expressed his anti-US sentiments from time to time

Billie Joe Armstrong made a big announcement to his British crowd at his concert on Friday.

During a concert in London, the Green Day frontman vented his frustration following the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, which effectively removes Americans' constitutional right to an abortion.

“I’m renouncing my citizenship,” the 50-year-old said to the British crowd. “I’m coming here.”

Armstrong continued: "There's just too much stupid in the world to go back to that miserable excuse for a country. Oh, I'm not kidding. You're going to get a lot of me in the coming days."

It’s not the first anti-US sentiments from Armstrong, whose “American Idiot” takes shots at life in the US. He has repeatedly made political statements during his concerts and in interviews.
