The frontman also took to the band's Facebook page to condemn all white supremacists and those who support them.

Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong gave an impassioned speech on stage earlier this week in the wake of the horrific attacks in Charlottesville following a white supremacist rally in the area.

The band were performing in Omaha as part of their current Revolution Radio tour when Billie took to the mic to condemn those responsible for the violence and hatred seen at the event which ultimately led to the death of protestor Heather Heyer after a man deliberately drove his car into the crowd:

"You gotta stick up for the little guy. You gotta stick up for those that need to be stuck up for. Not some white supremacist (expletive). I saw these African American officers stand up in defense of these white supremacists so they can have their free speech."

Billie also later took to social media to express his thoughts more fully and clearly, specificallly calling out the Nazis who marched and encouraging fans to keep "sticking up for what you believe in":
