Bruce Willis Speaks Out After Being Photographed In LA Store Without A Face Mask

The Die Hard star said he'd made "an error of judgement".

Bruce Willis has spoken out after he was photographed without a face mask inside a pharmacy in Los Angeles.

The Die Hard star said he’d made “an error of judgement” after the photo of him inside the Rite Aid store on Monday started circulating on social media, leading to the actor’s name trending on Twitter…

Addressing the backlash over the photos, the 65-year-old told People: “It was an error in judgment.”

He added: “Be safe out there everyone and let’s continue to mask up.”

A report by PageSix claims that fellow shoppers became upset when the Fifth Element star was seen without a facial covering, and he ended up exiting the shop without making his purchase. 

There are strict government guidelines in place in California regarding the wearing of face masks in shops as infection rates continue to soar.
