Five Finger Death Punch bassist Chris Kael has no time for artists who vow to leave the United States.
On Monday, Kael tweeted "No one cares about anything enough to pack up and move out of the country. It's easy to say onstage, on TV and on social media; but, when's the last time you actually packed your bags for anything longer than a brief vacation and a quick return home? Stop bull****in'".
Kael was calling out Green Day front man Billie Joe, who declared on Friday that he was "renouncing my citizenship" and moving to the UK, following the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision.
Just another celebrity stomping their feet and running away. ENJOY THAT HUGE CHUNK OF TAXES from your fortune. You might wanna ask Mick Jagger, Phil Collins, Elton John and many more who left decades ago because of the taxation in their country 🤡
Wondering what Billie said exactly? "F*** America," Armstrong told the crowd. "I'm f***ing renouncing my citizenship. I'm f***ing coming here."
"Oh, I'm not kidding," Armstrong added. "You're going to get a lot of me in the coming days."
We can't controls the courts. We CAN control how we live and act and hopefully can begin to work together someday on remotely being on the same page as people.
