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 seem to be backed by photos, which show Bruce, 65, inside the store maskless.
A paparazzi agency said an employee at the pharmacy asked Bruce to cover his nose and mouth with a bandana hanging around his neck, but he "refused." Other customers at the store on Jan. 10 were also supposedly unhappy that Bruce didn't cover up. The New York Post reports 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 incident took place, is one of the biggest COVID-19 hotspots in the country. The virus is responsible for more than 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.
