Bruce Willis apologized for his failure to follow social distancing regulations following a trip to the pharmacy over the weekend, even though he wore a bandana around his neck.
"Armageddon" actor Bruce Willis reportedly got asked to leave a Rite Aid pharmacy in Los Angeles on Sunday because he wore no face mask and quickly found himself in the hot seat.

NO MASK, NO SHOPPING
Page Six reported the 65-year-old actor's transgression and said that Willis was asked by an employee of the pharmacy to leave the store since he wore no face mask.
Netizens soon showed their support for the action taken by the employee by commenting on the pictured actor's exit from the store without having made a purchase, as one wrote:
In a statement to PEOPLE, Willis addressed the situation with an apology. Los Angeles is now regarded as the epicenter of COVID-19 cases in California, having surpassed 10,000 pandemic-caused deaths in the area.
"It was an error in judgment," Willis said in his statement. "Be safe out there, everyone, and let's continue to mask up."
HIS QUARANTINE EXPERIENCE
The actor spent most of his time in quarantine with his ex-wife, "G.I. Jane" star Demi Moore, and their three children at their Idaho home.
I'm pretty freaked out and angry.
Moore and Willis divorced in 2000 after thirteen years of marriage, and he since found love again with Emma Heming, who joined the rest of the family in Idaho in June to celebrate her 42nd birthday.
A CLOSE CALL
The 65-year-old's maskless appearance came shortly after his daughter, Rumer, reportedly urged everyone to be vigilant with precautions.
After being exposed to the virus by someone who failed to mention feeling ill, Rumer clearly shared her dismay at the situation on her Instagram Stories and reportedly said:
"I'm gonna be honest I'm pretty freaked out and angry. It's not that difficult to be a decent human being and protect yourself and others."
In September last year, reports surfaced that Rumer Willis has a new man in her life named Armie Hammer. Also an actor, he is best known as one of the Winklevoss twins on "The Social Network."
Hammer's choice of career broke the family mold of successful businessmen who work in the oil industry, and his expected upcoming projects include roles in the films "Dreamland" and "Death on the Nile."
