Bruce Willis admits making an error of judgement after reportedly being asked to leave a store in LA for refusing to wear a face mask
Bruce Willis has admitted to making an "error of judgement" after reportedly being asked to leave a Los Angeles store for refusing to wear a face mask.
Last year, the mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti ordered that face coverings must be worn at all times outside of the home to help fight Covid-19, with certain exceptions - including children under two and people with certain disabilities.
ER doctor Cleavon MD re-posted the story to alert "all my healthcare providers in Los Angeles on the frontlines of the pandemic seeing countless patients die".
California, and in particular Los Angeles, has become one of the coronavirus hot spots in the US. Last month, the Golden State surpassed 2m recorded cases since the start of the pandemic.
TV writer Bryan Behar quipped that the Rite Aid pharmacy employee had "achieved what [Die hard antagonist] Hans Gruber couldnt - tossing Bruce Willis out of the building".
