Are they really even fans?

Hi whoever manages their way over onto this blog thingy I just have to vent about the recent things ive seen "fans" of Green Day say that's really grinding my gears. <Terrible Family Guy meme> So as of recent ive seen a lot of people who claim to be fans of Green Day or their music leave -I guess that's how you would put it- the fandom or stop/ boycott listening to the music altogether because they found out Billie didn't vote for Trump or because of all his recent political posting. Like how do people logically think "oh because he has a different opinion on POLITICS his music sucks now and I hate them" Like the hell? Like ive seen someone say they've been a fan since they were a baby now they arent because hes posting his opinion. Someone else said "Dont make me hate you guys now" all because he didn't vote Trump. Do people turn into mindless brainwashed monkeys when he comes to politics and the election or something? Do people lose all sense of logical thinking? 

 

Yeh so.... venting/rant over

 

Heres a nice meme Click 4 meme

 

UPDATEARINO- Called the person out who left the fandom because they didnt like that he posted his opinion on politics, gets called stupid and blocked.

Don't get so concerned about other fans. Do you like the music? Do you as a nice bonus agree with Billie politically? Then who cares what some other fan thinks tbh. Like, let them live their lives with their panties in a wad and enjoy yourself.

Have these people never listened to AI or 21CB?

No idea. Both of those albums are politically charged and all. If they have they dont understand those albums at all.

Right there with ya. It annoys me but in the end I don't care about them. If they want to leave the fandom, I'll wave them goodbye. I'm not comfortable associating with people like that anyways. Green Day will be just fine without them. In the end the only thing that matters is that you still like them. I for one love Green Day (or Billie specifically) more than I ever have before and that's enough for me.

I already told one dont let the door hit ya on the way out. Political views doesn't and won't change how I love Green Day

I don't mind that he has a political opinion, everyone does, and he's been very vocal about his, which is completely fine! I like to know everyone's opinion, even if it differs from mine. :) What bothers me, though, is how he pretty much said "if you supported Trump, you have no place at a green day event or even being a fan."  It wasn't his political preference that bothered me, but how he handled everyone elses.

I still love the shit out of them, though. :lol: Don't really think anything at this point could drive me away from them. (Unless of course, they partnered up with Justin Bieber... :ninja: )

The only reason I would stop being a fan is if he teamed up with JB, I dont want utter trash with music Gods xD. But ey he's interacting with fans more.

his exact quote: "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."

interpret it however you want

He specified that it was racism/sexism/homophobia/other bigotry that isn't welcome around Green Day. Although he disapproved of supporting Trump and said all those who voted for him are guilty of putting him in power (which they literally are lol) he has acknowledged that those things don't apply to all of them, so I don't believe he was referring to all Trump voters, rather just the ones who share his bigotry.

Billie's political views are stupid and their new album sucks balls so I'm not surprised that people are leaving. Bring the Trilogy era back!
