Former “Cosby Show” actor Geoffrey Owens spoke out about the “job shaming” he said he experienced after photos of him working at a Trader Joe’s were posted on Twitter.
“I was really devastated, but the period of devastation was so short,” Owens says while on “Good Morning America” while wearing his Trader Joe’s name tag. “My wife and I started to read these responses from literally all over the world. Fortunately, the shame part didn’t last very long.”
Geoffrey who appeared on “The Cosby Show” from 1985 to 1992, recently made headlines after being photographed while bagging groceries at the Trader Joe’s where he now works.
Many celebs have come to his defense and Tyler Perry even publicly offered him work on a project he is working on with Oprah’s OWN network.
