Actor Bruce Willis admits to his "error" after being slammed for not wearing mask while visiting drug store in Los Angeles
Actor Bruce Willis was caught mask-less while visiting a Los Angeles pharmacy and was asked to leave after reportedly refusing to wear the facial protection.
65-year-old Die Hard later acknowledges that he was wrong appearing in public without a mask. The actor had to speak out after the photos of him at a Los Angeles Rite Aid on Sunday went viral on social media.
He was slammed by the internet using of acting thoughtlessly and putting people’s lives at risk. Although there was no any information that Willis was ever tested positive for the coronavirus.
“Does he care if he’s an asymptomatic superspreader?” Twitter user @AceHoffman wrote, asking why “privileged pompous pretend heroes refuse to mask up?”

To all my healthcare providers in Los Angeles on the frontlines of the pandemic seeing countless patients die.

“Be safe out there everyone and let’s continue to mask up,” he said.
