The lack of empathy in the world and human cruelty toward other people is becoming more and more visible, especially on Social Media where comments get amplified. Bruce Willis was mocked on social media after a video where he’s celebrating his 68th birthday. Although most of us were really glad to see him so happy, surrounded by the people who love him, others decided to show their horrible side and mock the actor.
A few months ago, the actor was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, a condition for which there is no treatment and which derived from a previous diagnosis of aphasia. This disorder has caused the Die Hard star to present physical, psychological, and verbal affectations. Last year, the celebrity’s family feared for his life as his health began to deteriorate, to the point of bringing forward the Christmas celebration. That is why today we are happy to see Bruce again with a better look, although different from what we were used to seeing.
Happy birthday, BW! So glad we could celebrate you today. Love you and love our family.
Thank you to everyone for the love and warm wishes – we all feel them. pic.twitter.com/vcb50QP9hr

Bruce Willis’ Appearance Is Mocked on Social Media
Among these differences, it stood out that his ‘perfect’ smile was missing a tooth, something insignificant if we look at it from a physical point of view. Unfortunately, this detail served for many people to show how inhuman they are. Regardless of the hard process that Bruce Willis and his family have gone through, several users on social networks began to make fun of the actor’s appearance.
“He looks like an old man, he’s missing a tooth.” “Now he’s the wife’s grandfather.” “He looks like Toothless,” comments read.
There were even those who considered that neither his family nor his ex-partner Demi Moore, should have published the video where his appearance, according to some Internet users, is “terrible.” Apparently, those who dared to criticize him did not think that whatever Bruce’s physique, what they shared was not just a video, but it was an unforgettable moment, next to a person they admire, love, and care for.
