Bruce Willis’ family has announced that the actor will step away from acting due to health complications.
The famed actor was diagnosed with aphasia, which is the neurological loss of the ability to understand speech and to speak clearly.
While the family has not mentioned the COVID-19 vaccine, it’s important to note that aphasia has been linked to the second dose of the vaccine.
According to the NIH:
Though rare, neurological side effects of SARS-CoV-2 vaccinations are increasingly reported. Even if the first dosage goes uncomplicated, the second dose may be complicated by severe adverse reactions as in the following case.
A 52yo male developed sudden-onset reading difficulty and aphasia 7d after the second dose of an mRNA-based SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. He had a previous history of myocardial infarction, arterial hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and nephrolithiasis. Blood pressure was slightly elevated on admission. Blood tests revealed mildly elevated D-dimer, pre-diabetes and hyperuricemia. Cerebral magnetic resonance imaging revealed an intracerebral bleeding (ICB) in the left temporal lobe. Aphasia resolved almost completely within a few days. Blood pressure values were normal throughout hospitalisation. Whether there was a causal relation between the ICB and the vaccination remains speculative but cannot be definitively excluded.
A second dose of a SARS-CoV-2 vaccination may be followed by ICB. Though the pathophysiology of ICB remains unexplained a causal relation between ICB and the vaccination cannot be excluded. Risk factors for ICB should be carefully monitored in patients undergoing SARS-CoV-2 vaccination.
To be clear, this does NOT mean that Bruce Willis was diagnosed with aphasia due to the vaccine.
However, the timing and suddenness of this announcement has many people wondering what is going on, as more and more high profile celebrities and politicians are suddenly being diagnosed with serious illnesses.

JUST IN – Bruce Willis (67) to retire because has been diagnosed with aphasia, a degenerative brain condition.
— Disclose.tv (@disclosetv) March 30, 2022
This appears to be a permanent retirement.
Given the condition, Bruce Willis will likely never return to acting or the spotlight.
According to People Magazine:
Bruce Willis is retiring from acting after being diagnosed with aphasia.
The 67-year-old actor’s family shared the news on Instagram Wednesday, writing alongside a photo of him on their Instagram feeds, “To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities.”
“As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him,” the caption added.
According to Mayo Clinic, aphasia “is a condition that robs you of the ability to communicate. It can affect your ability to speak, write and understand language, both verbal and written.” The group adds that the condition “typically occurs suddenly after a stroke or a head injury. But it can also come on gradually from a slow-growing brain tumor or a disease that causes progressive, permanent damage (degenerative).”
Bruce’s family’s Instagram posts went on to say that it “is a really challenging time” for them all, “and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion and support.”
Of course, don’t be surprised if the fact checkers come out to “fact check” this article.
Again, we are not saying that this was the result of the COVID vaccine.
However, it is a question worth asking, as the NIH itself is confirming that this is a possible side effect.

Wonder if Bruce Willis got the full regiment of synthetic mRNA genetic material. Seems aphasia is a known side effect of that.
