Cosby Show Actor Shamed For Working Regular Job

The internet has come out droves to slam the shaming of an actor who used to be on The Cosby Show and is now a cashier at a grocery store.

The story goes like this: a shopper recognised Geoffery Owens working the till at Trader Joe’s and took a few pictures.

It's unknown if he even knew she took them.


She sold the pictures, saying she was "shocked" to see him working there, looking the way he did. 

"It made me feel really bad. I was like, 'Wow, all those years of doing the show and you ended up as a cashier'."

"I would have thought after The Cosby Show he would maybe be doing something different."

Owens, 57, played Sondra Huxtable's doctor husband Elvin Tibideaux on the final five seasons of The Cosby Show.

He also appeared in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and That's So Raven and, in 2017, an episode of Lucifer.

The internet, however, have gone in on the so-called story, emphatically saying that no one should ever feel shame for working and in a sign of support for Owens, tweeted their own examples of working unglam service jobs.
