Geoffrey Owens

I’m not here to shame anyone who works a job, however some news dropped over the weekend I found very… for lack of better words “stupid”.

A Cosby Show alumni was spotted bagging groceries at Trader Joes, the woman who snapped the photo wasn’t sure if who she saw was in fact Geoffrey Owens of the hit 80’s sitcom until she googled him to confirm.

Media outlets across the internet covered the story shaming the actor for having a simple job at a market. Nobody knows why he’s working at Trader Joes, the actor teaches Shakespeare, and continues to take projects, with two upcoming films in post-production, with earlier work in shows like CBS Elementary, and Fox Lucifer, according to IMDb.

The actor doesn’t seem to be having a problem in his career, so I honestly don’t understand why the media is shaming him for doing something other than acting. Maybe The whole ordeal was to get his name back out there and get people talking about him again. Obviously it worked because it’s all over the news now and will probably a topic of discussion this week.

Fans across the internet took to twitter supporting the great actor and shaming the media for their trash news.

I guess it’s safe to say that the internet is stronger than the media and sometimes what’s wrong is wrong. Let that man live his life. If he wants to bag groceries and meet people during his downtime at Trader Joes, then let the man bag groceries.
