Hollywood actor Brice Willis was put on blast on Monday after it was revealed that he was kicked out of a Rite Aid pharmacy for refusing to wear a mask.
Page Six reported that a "spy" told them that people inside the store became upset that he wasn't wearing a mask — despite having a bandanna tied around his neck. They say he could have easily just pulled the bandanna up over his face. Los Angeles County has more than 900,000 cases of COVID-19.
PEOPLE later spoke to the actor, who released an extremely brief statement about the incident.
"It was an error in judgment," Willis tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. He added, "Be safe out there everyone and let's continue to mask up."
Throughout the pandemic, Bruce has spent most of his time quarantined at his family's Idaho home with ex-wife Demi Moore, 58, and their children Rumer, 32, Scout, 29, and Tallulah, 26.
Since their divorce, Bruce and Demi have always remained extremely close.
