Rock band Green Day dropped the f-bomb at Donald Trump during Sunday night’s American Music Awards: “Fascist.”

During the planned performance of their recent song “Bang Bang,” the group broke into an impromptu chant that accused the incoming president of racism.

“No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA,” frontman Billie Joe Armstrong chanted, repeating a frequent refrain by liberals and leftists about Mr. Trump.

Armstrong just last week called Mr. Trump a “fascist” and called him “Hitler” during the campaign.

Co-host Gigi Hadid had mocked incoming first lady Melania Trump’s Slovenian accent earlier in the AMA show, but, according to the New York Post, none of the performers besides Green Day attacked Mr. Trump.

Mr. Trump has been a favorite target for entertainers’ ridicule all year, and he’s often responded in kind. Just this weekend, he’d already got involved in spats with the casts of “Hamilton” and “Saturday Night Live.”
