Green Day’s lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong announced that he will be renouncing his American citizenship after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. This wasn’t very surprising. Armstrong has sounded like a member of America-hating Dixie Chicks for years anyway.
What was surprising is the amount of mockery that Armstrong has received online since making that claim. Oh, no! Anything but that! Please don’t leave, guy who hasn’t had a hit song since the 1990s! What will we do without you?
One of the most entertaining things to watch since the Roe v. Wade decision is the way that all these Hollywood celebrity types have been going into total meltdown mode. They’re freaking out over the idea that women in some states might now bear and raise their own children, rather than killing them in the womb.
So, now we’ve got guys like Armstrong telling us he’s going to renounce his citizenship and guys like that other dude who calls himself “Pink” telling us we should never listen to his music again. They don’t realize that their terms are acceptable to us.
