NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Bruce Willis has apologized for not wearing a face covering at a RIte Aid in Los Angeles Monday, saying in a statement, "It was an error in judgement."

Willis added," Be safe out there everyone and let's continue to mask up."

The 65-year-old actor was reportedly asked to leave to leave the drugstore after he refused to wear a mask, which is in violation of the Los Angeles County mask mandate.

Fellow customers at the Rite Aid "became upset" when the 65-year-old actor didn't pull up a bandana around his neck, Page Six reported Tuesday. 1010 WINS has reached out to Rite Aid for comment.

Photos obtained by Page Six show that Willis -- who left the store without making a purchase -- was maskless.

"Everyone is asked to wear a face covering when they are interacting with others who are not members of their household in public and private spaces," according to the Los Angeles County website.

The Twitterpshere wasn't too pleased with Willis.

Actor Dylan Minnette of the Netflix series "13 Reasons Why" tweeted, "f*** Bruce Willis."
