In October, his wife, Emma Heming Willis, shared a photo of herself, Bruce and their two daughters wearing masks. She captioned the photo, "We are proud to support Sesame Workshop by wearing our @citizensofhumanity x @sesamestreet masks. The collection is designed for the whole family and benefits Sesame Workshop's COVID-19 relief initiative, #CaringForEachOther."
The actor later apologized for his ‘error in judgement’: "Be safe out there everyone and let's continue to mask up,” Willis told Peoplein a statement.
Others were less surprised, however, as one person wrote, “Bruce Willis has had a long conservative bent to him," noting the perceived link between conservative beliefs and a reluctance to wear masks.
In the past, Willis has been identified as a Republican who supported George W. Bush in 2000, Business Insider reported. But it’s not clear if he’s been a Trump supporter and he’s never suggested he is.
Either way, referencing another of Willis’ famous on screen appearances, political activist Femi Oluwole wrote, “Bruce Willis doesn’t see dead people”.
