Billie Joe just posted a message to fans about an hour ago, which you can read below. But first, in the days leading up to the election, Billie Joe used his Instagram account to encourage his followers. He posted pictures urging us to vote and to stop Trump from winning the U.S. presidency. Here are a couple of those messages:

Trump actually ended up winning the election last night after a shocking turn of events. Many wondered what and when we'd hear from Billie Joe, since it was obvious that the result wasn't what he or many fans and followers might have wanted. Late last night, Billie Joe shared this, using some of his own lyrics in a heartbreaking and poignant message:

Today, Billie Joe posted again. This time, he wrote a lengthy caption that sums up his feelings. We've copied his caption below and edited it slightly for readability:

"As the outcome of this election is still sinking in, I'm left wondering what the hell to do. What to think...what to say. Like the vast majority of you I want to say SOMEthing.
Our social progress got punched in the face. Hard. It's hard to tell if we made any progress at all...the dark side of our better angels have spoken...they gloat...they cheer...I pity them.
I pity them because they have no clue what they've gotten our country into. Or the world, for that matter...but one thing is for sure: racism, misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, and xenophobes have no place in around Green Day and/or any Green Day event.

As for the true angels.
If you are black, white, brown, of any nationality, any faith, gay, straight, trans, girl, boy, punk, metal, goth, weirdo, skin, freak and the overall marginalized of all ages, we welcome you with all the rage and love we can muster...we stand by you. Together. In love and unity forever...and that day will come when we get off the ground and punch right back...even harder."

Billie Joe's message is clear: whatever your stance on our next president, we need to come together and let love win. We're sure this isn't the last we'll hear from Billie Joe on this important issue, so stay tuned.
