Bruce’s refusal to wear a face covering comes as a surprise to some, especially since his family has been vocal about taking precautions during the coronavirus pandemic.
In October, his wife, Emma Heming Willis, shared a photo of herself, Bruce and their two daughters wearing masks. She captioned the picture, “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.”
Emma also called out those who are against wearing masks, writing on Instagram in July, “I wear a mask to protect myself, my family and you. Yeah, it’s annoying but what are the other options? Not many. So I’m going to wash my hands, continue to social distance and when I can’t, I’ll be #wearingadamnmask.”
