Actor Scott Baio said after living in California for more than four decades, he’s finally decided he’s had it with the Left’s destruction of the state, adding it’s “not a safe place anymore.”

The 62-year-old and longtime resident of Los Angeles got everyone’s attention when he tweeted on Wednesday, “After 45 years, I’m making my way to finally ‘exit stage right’ from California.”

His post included a quote from a report on KTLA5 that read, “The most recent survey conducted by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority found approximately 69,000 people experiencing homelessness in L.A. County and 41,000 in the city in 2022.”

Later, he tweeted that homelessness “brings down property value. Also no consequences for crime that is rampant, making things higher in price and it’s just not a safe place anymore. [ImFree].”

Some trolled the actor who famously played Chachi on “Happy Days” before landing the lead role of “Charles in Charge,” saying Californians won’t miss his “right wing” views.

He replied, “Maybe not, but they’ll certainly miss the high taxes I pay!”

Earlier this month, Realtor.com noted that Baio listed his southern California five-bedroom, 4.5-bath mansion in the Woodland Hills neighborhood for $3.85 million. The actor paid $1.85 million for the home in 2010, the outlet noted.

The KTLA5 report included a comment from L.A. City Councilmember Katy Yaroslavsky, who expressed outrage over the homelessness in her district.


“My home is within walking distance of these encampments,” Yaroslavsky said in a statement. “What these small businesses and the surrounding communities have had to endure is unacceptable.”

“My staff and I have been doing everything we can do to manage the situation while working hard to locate housing and services,” the statement added.

The homelessness and crime rates have also motivated other celebrities to leave the Golden State.

Stars like Katy Perry, Matthew McConaughey, and even podcaster Joe Rogan previously said L.A. was no longer the place they wanted to raise their kids.
