‘Stop Bullying Kids!’ High School Freshman Who Defied DeSantis and Kept Mask On Speaks Out — And So Does His Dad

High School freshman Kevin Brown Jr. defied Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R-FL) demand to remove a Covid mask during a press event, and spoke out afterward. So did his father.

At a press conference at the University of South Florida Wednesday, DeSantis told masked high school students on stage behind his podium, “You do not have to wear those masks,” and sneered “I mean, please take them off. Honestly, it’s not doing anything. And we gotta stop with this Covid theater.”

He went on to grudgingly add, “So, if you want to wear it, fine. But this is, this is ridiculous.”

Some students removed their masks, some did not. Brown did not comply, and was later removed from the stage.

Two of the kids and their parents spoke out to WFLA reporter Justin Schecker Wednesday night.

Brown said he considered removing his mask because “it’s the governor, he asked us to take it off.”

“But I thought about it, and it’s my right to have my mask on,” Brown said.

His father, Kevin Brown Sr., told Schecker “I would tell (DeSantis) to stop bullying kids,” and that “His mother tells him to wear the mask. I told him it’s his choice, so he made that choice. And the governor has no right to tell no kid or no one who they can or can’t wear a mask. He doesn’t have that right.”

High School senior Eric Marshall did remove his mask following the governor’s demand, and said he did so due to “pressure of an adult figure asking me to do something, and it’s just like, ‘All right.’”

Eric’s mother, Dawn Marshall, was not pleased.

MS. MARSHALL: It’s just shocking that the governor told these kids, take off your mask. He pretty much said, Take off your mask is stupid and take off your mask. Your parents don’t matter.

MR. SCHECKER: Her initial reaction to seeing her son in the video.

MS. MARSHALL: He knows I’m going to say something, and he his eyebrows went up and he looked shocked.
