As the pandemic has rolled on, we’re starting to see which celebrities are sick of COVID-19 regulations. Eric Clapton and Van Morrison have written an anti-mask song, while going to Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky-Tonk and Rock & Roll Steakhouse in Nashville has somehow become an even bigger nightmare during the pandemic. The latest celebrity to stupidly show they’re sick of coronavirus protocols is Bruce Willis, who was asked to leave a Los Angeles Rite Aid for refusing to wear a mask.
Page Six says that people in the Rite Aid became upset when they saw Bruce Willis walking around the store without a mask, despite the fact that the Die Hard actor has a bandana wrapped around his neck. Instead of simply putting his bandana on, Willis left the store without making a purchase. Los Angeles has become the epicenter of the coronavirus in the United States, with over 10,000 deaths in the city alone.
At the beginning of the pandemic, it looked as though Bruce Willis was quarantining with his ex-wife Demi Moore and their children Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah in Idaho. Yet with Willis’ current wife Emma Heming and their children Mabel and Evelyn in Los Angeles, it looks as though Willis has returned to California, and is now walking around Rite Aids without a mask. Willis’ refusal to wear a mask has left many making jokes about the actor on Twitter.
Even with the pandemic, Bruce Willis had several films receive a release last year, all of which went directly to streaming services. Survive the Night was a thriller in which Willis starred alongside Chad Michael Murray, while Hard Kill was another action-thriller, which put the actor alongside Jesse Metcalfe. Mixing things up ever so slightly was Breach, this one an action-thriller set in space, with co-stars Thomas Jane and Rachel Nichols.
Currently, Bruce Willis has five different films ready for release, all of which are action thrillers, showing just how much range Willis has recently. Amongst these are Midnight in the Switchgrass, in which Willis and Megan Fox play FBI agents trying to chase down a serial killer, the sci-fi film Cosmic Sin, with Frank Grillo and Luke Wilson, as well as Apex, Out of Death, and American Siege. No word yet on when you can scroll past these films when deciding what to rent from your favorite video-on-demand service.
The combination of California’s high death toll due to coronavirus, and the fact that Bruce Willis clearly has a face covering at the ready makes this news especially disappointing. While Willis certainly doesn’t have a death wish, he’s also not unbreakable. No day is a good day to die hard, and even though this isn’t exactly an armageddon situation, it certainly is a cop out that Willis doesn’t at least have a sixth sense at this point to put on a mask when he goes into public places.
