It’s likely that he’s just stressed. Calm him down, give him nose rubs and place the treat on the floor near him. Then leave the room for a few minutes. It’s likely that he’ll start eating it. Rabbits often get stressed when being brushed, especially if they aren’t used to it. If he doesn’t eat it, I’d offer him something else about fifteen minutes later. He should be calmed down fully by then.

Oh okay wow. Have you left the room for any time? I’d give him some privacy in case he’s scared but set a timer. So leave for like 20 minutes. If he still hasn’t moved when you go back in, offer him anything that you think he’d usually eat. Bananas, blueberries, strawberries, lettuce, kale, spinach, any sort of treat that he usually goes crazy over. Some pellets maybe.
Think about why he started. Was it because you brushed him or because something really loud dropped and he got scared? I’d calm him down, by giving him nose rubs if that’s what he likes. Cover his eyes and rub his head. Or leave him alone for a short period of time. If it gets to a point where he has barely eaten anything after 8 hours, you’re going to have to take him to the vet.

I wouldn't leave him not eating and drinking that long. Have you got any critical care and syringes? Mix some of that and start syringe feeding. Need to keep that gut moving to avoid stasis.

going to the vet is a good idea, I am glad you can get him in! Also, Binky4eva is right, get critical care regardless. The formula will help get him healthy and better soon, I am sure it is at the vet but you want to get it anyways in case of anything else after the vet visit.
