Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong lashes out at Trump-supporting fan

Frontman says Trump is "sick and unfit for office"

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has told a Donald Trump-sympathising fan to stop listening to his band’s music.

Armstrong recently criticised Trump over a tweet about North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, which saw the US President brag about having a “much bigger” and “more powerful” nuclear button.

Posting a screenshot of the Trump tweet to Instagram, Armstrong wrote in a caption: “This isn’t funny. This is our president acting like a madman drunk on power THREATENING to kill innocent starving people by way of nuclear war. The 25th amendment needs to be enforced. This man is sick and unfit for office. I don’t care if your liberal or conservative.. this has to stop. Please share #impeachtrump”.


After a fan argued that “people have the right to support Trump” and that Armstrong’s comment “won’t change anything to Trump supporters,” the singer is reported to have fired back: “Well then go fuck your self you stupid piece of shit. If that’s the way you feel about mass destruction and murder then fuck off. Stay the fuck off my Instagram and don’t come back.”

“Don’t listen to my fucking records,” Armstrong added. “I have no problem telling ignorant fucks like you to go to hell. That goes for any other stupid fucks that think this behavior should normalized. Get the fuck out!”

Armstrong has long been a vocal critic of Trump, blaming his rise on stupid white people and comparing Trump to Voldemort from Harry Potter.

In 2016, Armstrong revealed that some of his family are Trump supporters. “I’ve got family members from Oklahoma that are big Trump supporters,” he stated. “And there’s no clear answer on why they’re supporting him because he doesn’t even have any policies.”
