After Anti-Mask Tirade, Disney Star Wants To Sue Twitter Because She Couldn’t Find Her Account
Leigh-Allyn Baker seems to be upset — with pandemic mitigation efforts, with the public school system, and now, with Twitter, because she was unable to find her account and thinks that may mean she was ‘shadowbanned.’
Baker was widely known as the mother on the Disney show Good Luck, Charlie, but lately she’s been earning herself an entirely different type of fame. She showed up at a school board meeting to explain, from her point of view, why making kids wear masks to protect against the spread of COVID-19 is just no acceptable.
Her claim is that her children were ‘vaccine-injured’ and therefore have a medical exemption and won’t be getting vaccinated against COVID-19, but she also won’t allow them to use the other method that experts are recommending to reduce the risk of spreading the disease: masks.

If you’ve been listening to anti-maskers you won’t hear anything new in Baker’s rant. She believes masks hamper the ability to get sufficient oxygen to the brain, and claims that a neurologist will back her up.
However, apparently a few people found her attempts at arguments compelling, and sought her out to follow on Twitter. She claims that she’s being ‘shadowbanned’ and her purported evidence is that when she tried to type her Twitter handle in, there were no search results.
A test run immediately before publication of this article certainly doesn’t disprove Baker’s own experience, but at least in this instance, only the first five characters — “@l_a_b” — of her screen name were required to bring her account onto Twitter’s suggestions.
Still, shes hinting at a hypothetical lawsuit over the alleged ‘shadowbanning’ — “I was really hoping not to sue platforms #shadowban, but oh well…”
Tonight 4 people came up to me at an event and wanted to follow me on @twitter. I typed in @L_A_Baker and shocker… NOTHING came up but fake accounts! Damn’. I was really hoping not to sue platforms #shadowban, but oh well…

According to the Tennesseean, however, Williamson County schools — where Ms. Baker was speaking — have voted to require masks for all students, staff, and visitors in elementary school buildings and buses.
