Bruce Willis had a good day with his family at Disneyland

Bruce Willis seems to have had a great time at Disneyland’s Splash Mountain attraction in Anaheim, California, during a family outing in recent days.

In a touching video posted on Instagram by the former actor’s wife, Emma Heming Willis, Bruce clearly seems to be having a great time, despite his terrible illness, even being a protective dad to his little girl sitting next to him, using his arm to make her a seatbelt and covering her eyes as the ride’s descent approaches!

But not everyone will be thrilled by this honor for the rapper, since beyond his status as a rap legend, Tupac has also accumulated numerous controversies and a criminal history.

A concealed weapons case and his 1995 conviction by a jury on two counts of first-degree sexual assault cast a shadow over his undeniable talent.

The rapper had spent nine months in prison for this crime, of which he claimed to be innocent, after being sentenced of over four years by a judge who described the assault as brutal.

The ceremony will take place on June 7, when Shakur’s star will be installed at 6212 Hollywood Boulevard.
