Former Disney Channel actress Leigh-Allyn Baker is going viral because of the anti-mask speech she gave at a recent school board meeting in Tennessee.
The 49-year-old former actress referred to herself as a “California refugee” who gave up her career in Hollywood to gain “freedom” in her new home of Tennessee.
Baker is best known for playing the mom on Disney Channel’s Good Luck Charlie. She has also appeared in recurring roles on Will & Grace and Charmed. The school district where she lives has instituted a mask mandate, which she and other parents were protesting.

“My name is Leigh-Allyn Baker, and I’m a California refugee,” Baker said in her speech. “I gave up everything there: a really successful Hollywood career, television shows. I gave it all up for freedom and to come to this friendly place in Tennessee and be greeted with open arms, and I love it here.”
She continued, “I wanted to tell you that I have two vax-injured children and they have medical exemptions after the seizures and the hospitalizations after all of their immunizations. I was granted, obviously, a medical exemption. So my children are those rare children that will just not be able to get the vaccine.”
“And still, I would never put them in a mask because their brain needs oxygen to grow, which the neurologists can confirm. Anyway, the real part of the clown show is that you all think that you actually have the authority to mandate this,” she added. “Because there are these books that I have and I have them as a gift for you: the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, the Federalist Papers and also the Bible. These guarantee my freedom and yours and our children’s to breathe oxygen.”
