Veteran Hollywood actor, Bruce Willis, was asked to leave the Rite-Aid pharmacy in Los Angeles-area for refusing to wear a facemask.
Page Six reported that the Die Hard actor, who had a bandana on his neck and could have easily used as a makeshift mask, left the store in the LA County (the epicentre of the coronavirus crisis in California) without purchasing anything.
The report added that a Rite-Aid staff asked him to leave after “people inside the store became upset that Willis, 65, wasn’t wearing a mask.”
Following the report, the iconic actor has since released a statement to People Magazine, saying it was a mistake, and encouraging people to continue to wear their face masks.
It was an error in judgment, said Willis.
Be safe out there everyone and let’s continue to mask up.
