Even legendary actor Bruce Willis, the star of the Christmas classic “Die Hard,” isn’t safe from the antics of America’s oftentimes deranged mask police.

The New York Post has confirmed that the actor inadvertently created a scene when he waltzed into a Los Angeles Rite Aid store on Monday without a mask.

“The spy says people inside the store became upset that Willis, 65, wasn’t wearing a mask — despite having a bandanna tied around his neck, which he could have easily pulled up,” the celebrity news website reported Tuesday afternoon.

“We’re told the ‘Die Hard’ star, who was photographed at the store without a mask on, walked away without making his purchase.”

The following photo was snapped before he left:

By that evening, he’d already caved and apologized.

“It was an error in judgment. Be safe out there everyone and let’s continue to mask up,” he said in a statement to People magazine.

But it was already too late, and the mask police were out in full force with condemnations and denunciations.

And of course, blue checkmark elitists were leading the hate-mob.

Look (*Language warning):

The good news for Willis is that he presumably didn’t have to deal with any of those zealots in real life since no footage has emerged of crazy people yelling at him. He ought to consider himself lucky in that regard.

Plenty of other anti-maskers have had the unfortunate experience of being harangued in public by insane-acting mask zealots.

In one case out of Ocean Shores, Washington, the anti-maskers decided to fight back.

“Daniel Troublefield, 43, said he was at the Ocean Shores IGA last month when he called someone out for not wearing a mask. Inside the store, he said the conversation turned heated, and he thought that was the end of it,” according to station KIRO.

“They kept berating me with expletives, calling me a snowflake and it’s not science, it’s a hoax. To my regret, I walked up to the car. I was trying to explain it is science and you should be wearing a mask because you’re endangering me and everyone else in the store by not having a mask on,” Troublefield told the station.

The next thing he knew, one of the anti-maskers allegedly tapped his chest. In response, he flipped the man’s hat off. Bad choice.

Troublefield wound up being severely beaten — and with nothing to show for it, not even charges against the two anti-maskers.

“At this time, I am declining to file felony charges. … The victim instigated the verbal disagreement and the physical altercation. He continued to pursue the suspect to his car and appears to verbally be aggressive to him as he is sitting in the driver’s seat, even reaching into the car and flipping his ball cap,” Grays Harbor County Prosecutor Katherine L. Svoboda reportedly announced late last month.

“The other occupants would testify about how the victim was threatening and being aggressive. Store employees believe the victim was the instigator. The victim was inconsistent in his statement and the video of the incident, and when confronted, admits to the discrepancies. The video of the fight actually has the victim on top and perhaps in a position of advantage when tides turn and he is reversed to his back. The victim lost the fight he picked.”
