Long before any of the Cop Out stuff, I was a big Bruce Willis fan – so this is really heartbreaking to read. He loved to act and sing and the loss of that has to be devastating for him. I feel like an asshole for my petty complaints since 2010. So sorry to BW and his family from him. https://t.co/npSgvkb5v7
