Green Day Have A Very Direct Four Letter Message For Ted Cruz On Their Current Tour

Green Day’s Hella Mega Tour with Weezer, and Fall Out Boy is finally under way. After pandemic-related postponements in both 2020 and 2021, the trio of alt rock heavyweights are finally getting to tour together and Green Day are using the opportunity to deliver a message to polarizing Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

As the San Francisco Chronicle reported, numerous photos on social media have surfaced of the message on the band’s on-stage backdrop. And it’s very clear statement: “F*CK TED CRUZ.” Except the band didn’t even censor the expletive.

Expectedly, it has been an easy rallying cry for fans to get behind, as Cruz is a figurehead for the hard-headed GOP, who has maintained a strong division in national politics that has prevented policies related to gun control and voting equality from being enacted. One European user posted a photo of the backdrop and commented, “@Ted Cruz this is from the last @Green Day concert in Berlin, just so you know, the whole EU hates you too. And we think you’re a massive p*ssy.”

Cruz has caught wind of Green Day’s message and seems to find it amusing, quote retweeting an article while spewing the lyrics to Green Day’s “Brain Stew”: “I’m counting sheep but running out.”

Just take the L, Ted.
