Bruce Willis speaks after being asked to leave a Rite Aid in Los Angeles for not wearing a mask.
A source told Fox News that the 65-year-old “Die Hard” actor entered the pharmacy around 3pm on Tuesday and immediately made other patrons uncomfortable because he did not cover his face in the store.
Rite Aid has been requiring customers to wear face clothing at all stores since July 21 in light of the coronavirus pandemic. When an employee asked Willis to cover his face, sources said he seemed “unhappy” and chose instead to go without buying anything.
In a statement to People, Willis admitted that he should have disguised himself before entering Rite Aid.
