Bruce Willis reportedly asked to leave store after refusing to wear mask – NJ.com

Say it ain’t so, John McClane.

Maybe Bruce Willis is “Unbreakable,” but the rest of us? Not so much.

PageSix reports that the actor was asked to leave a Rite Aid in Los Angeles Monday after refusing to wear a mask.

A source told the outlet that people in the store noticed that Willis wasn’t wearing a mask and he left without finishing his shopping. Willis was photographed in the Rite Aid wearing a bandana around his neck (but not pulled over his nose and mouth).

Los Angeles County is approaching one million cases of coronavirus since the beginning of the pandemic. More than 12,300 people have died of COVID-19 there.

Willis, 65, was born in Germany and grew up in Carneys Point in Salem County. The alum of Penns Grove High School later worked at the Salem Nuclear Power Plant in Lower Alloways Creek and DuPont Chambers Works factory in Deepwater, Pennsville. The future action hero studied drama at Montclair State University before moving to New York.

The two-time Emmy winner got his start on “Moonlighting” in the ‘80s before starring in the “Die Hard” movies, “Pulp Fiction,” “The Fifth Element,” “Look Who’s Talking,” “12 Monkeys” — which centers around a deadly virus — “The Sixth Sense,” “Unbreakable” and “Glass.”

On social media, people criticized and roasted Willis for the maskless shopping trip, often with a “Die Hard” theme. There were also a fair few jokes.
