Bruce Willis was kicked out of a Los Angeles Rite Aid over the weekend after refusing to wear a face covering, new reports allege.
The claims seems to be backed up by photos, which show Bruce, 65, inside the store maskless.
A paparazzi agency said an employee at the pharmacy asked Bruce to cover up his nose and mouth with a bandana hanging around his neck, but he “refused.” Other customers of the store on Jan. 10 were supposedly unhappy that Bruce didn’t cover up, too. The New York Post said the “Die Hard” actor walked out of the store without making a purchase and without ever pulling up a face covering.
Los Angeles, where the alleged incident took place, is one of the biggest COVID-19 hotspots in the country. The virus is responsible for over 10,000 deaths in the area.
Since last spring, Bruce has been photographed multiple times wearing a mask while out and about, as has his family, so his refusal doesn’t appear to be political.
In the early days of the pandemic, the actor raised some eyebrows when he quarantined with ex-wife Demi Moore and their children at the family’s home in Idaho. Eventually, his wife and their young children joined them.
