Green Day has always been known for the politically-driven messages in their songs--think "Holiday" and "American Idiot." Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong took it a step further on Instagram Tuesday (Jan. 2) by telling a Donald Trump-supporting fan to stop listening to his music.

Armstrong posted a screenshot of Trump’s tweet about North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. In the tweet, the President claimed that while Jong-un has a “Nuclear Button on his desk at all times,” Trump’s button is “much bigger & more powerful one than his.”

In the caption, Armstrong expressed his discontent with the tweet: “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,” the singer reportedly fired back, according to Alternative Nation. He replied, “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,” he continued. “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!”
