Violet Affleck, daughter of actors Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, appeared at a Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday to advocate mask mandates in hospitals.

The teenager, introducing herself, told the board, “Hi, Violet Affleck, Los Angeles resident, first-time voter, I’m 18.”

Affleck went on to cite her experience of contracting a “post-viral condition” in 2019.


“I contracted a post-viral condition in 2019. I’m OK now, but I saw firsthand that medicine does not always have answers to the consequences of even minor viruses. The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown that into sharper relief,” she said while wearing a face mask.

The Los Angeles resident went on to explain how mask mandates are necessary in dealing with the dangers of long COVID.

“One in 10 infections leads to long COVID, which is a devastating neurological [and] cardiovascular illness that can take away people’s ability to work, move, see, and even think,” the 18-year-old said.

“To confront the long COVID crisis, I demand mask availability, air filtration, and far-UVC light in government facilities, including jails and detention centers, and mask mandates in county medical facilities,” she said.

Affleck called for providing more “high-quality free tests and treatment” and opposing mask bans “for any reason.”

“The county must oppose mask bans for any reason. They do not keep us safer,” she said at the end of her public comment at the meeting.

Her appearance received some criticism on social media, with some blasting her testimony.

“Is Violet Affleck the original Karen?” one person posted.

“It appears that Violet Affleck is gaslighting her audience because there are plenty of photos and videos of her NOT WEARING A MASK before, during and after the pandemic,” another person posted.
