Actor Scott Baio is official leaving liberal California after living there for more than four decades.

Baio says it’s “not a safe place anymore” after the destruction of the state through radical left-wing policies. There are tens of thousands of homeless people and rising crime in recent years.

“After 45 years, I’m making my way to finally ‘exit stage right’ from California,” he wrote to social media.

Other stars have left LA, including Katy Perry, Matthew McConaughey, and podcaster Joe Rogan.

“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.”

Baio said 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.
