Bruce Willis says not wearing a face mask in an L.A. pharmacy was "an error in judgment".

The macho "Die Hard" actor was spotted without a face covering in a Rite Aid pharmacy in Los Angeles, California on Monday, Jan. 11, when an employee asked him to wear a face covering.

According to reports, Bruce was asked to leave the pharmacy when other customers became upset that he wasn't wearing a mask.

Willis, 65, wore a bandanna loosely around his neck as a fashion statement. But rather than pull the bandana up, Willis was photographed walking out of the store without making a purchase.

Social media users ripped Willis for putting other lives in danger by not wearing a mask. One social media user said celebrities and politicians who don't wear masks believe they are invincible.

Willis has now responded to backlash over the incident, saying "It was an error in judgment. Be safe out there everyone and let's continue to mask up," he told People magazine in a statement.

According to Page Six, Willis has spent much of 2020 quarantining with his ex-wife Demi Moore and their grown children, Scout, Rumer and Tallulah, at the family's compound in Idaho.

Speculation swirled that Willis' marriage to wife Emma Heming was on the rocks because she chose to stay behind at the couple's home in Los Angeles with their minor children, Mabel and Evelyn.

But Scout disputed the rumor, saying her half-sibling stepped on a hypodermic needle and required tests.

"My stepmom had to be in LA waiting to get the results from taking her to the doctor," Scout said. "So, my dad came up here and then travel got crazy so my stepmom stayed in LA with my little sisters.
