Fox news posted a story about former “Cosby Show” alum Geoffrey Owens, who played Elvin Tibideaux, the young doctor who married into the Cosby family on the famous sitcom, was photographed working at a Trader Joe’s in New Jersey.
The actor, who was on the sitcom from 1985 to 1992, was spotted by a local shopper at the Clifton, N.J. store, standing behind one of the checkout counters and wearing a Trader Joe’s staff shirt with a name tag that read, “Geoffrey.”
A woman named Karma Lawrence took the photo of the actor while he was working at a Clifton, New Jersey location of the grocery store, and apparently sold it to news outlets. In the photo, a bearded Owens can be seen bagging groceries.
Let me say this working a honest job is what a normal sane person will do to provide for themselves and their family. Their is no shame in working as a cashier or any other honest job. Just because you see stuff posted on Instagram does not mean its real. It’s often just a illusion.
Many Celebrities came to the actor’s defense:
