Quit job shaming Geoffrey Owens.

Dude went from the Cosby show to bagging groceries at Trader Joes. Now people are shaming him. A job is a job. Evil ass Bill didn't pay anybody but his rapey ass. Keep bagging dem burritos my man. Hope the twins are doing well. lol

I do not understand people. Why would anyone shame this man for having an actual job so he can pay his bills? I mean really?? People are fucked in the head.

Acting work is not always easy to come by- especially for middle-aged Black men, no matter how talented. Good for him for doing whatever he had to do to support his family. I last saw him in a significant part on the HBO comedy "Divorce" a few years back.

(Fun fact- his father, Major Owens, used to be my congressman)

He was doing what he had to do to put food on the table, but this may have turned into a blessing for him. Tyler Perry is getting ready to film a tv drama for OWN and asked Geoffrey to come join him.

Now as much as I’m not a big fan of Tyler, I have to hand it to him for reaching out to Geoffrey. As many other celebs have. That woman that snapped the pic of him had her 15 seconds of fame, but Geoffrey will last longer in the end. How can you go after someone for making an honest living?

Agree. Then they claim some Americans don’t want to do certain jobs, and yet some idiots tried to shame him for taking a low paying job to survive. In the end, he will have the last laugh.

I dont feel that her purpose was to shame him...I really dont...I imagine she was somewhat shocked to see a former tv star bagging grocery Now that Tyler Perry has reached out to him, I hope he considers and join Tyler...I hope the offers keeps coming and coming

Unfortunately, that's probably not enough work to earn a decent living. He might have kids, maybe even in college, or a mortgage or other expenses

I don't know the woman's intention, but it seems that Fox News and the Daily Mail were intending to promote a "look how a former star has fallen " scenario

Tyler Perry just offered him a job.

Good on Tyler Perry.

I remember going to a Neiman Marcus with a friend around Xmas time and we noticed that the woman handing out NM credit card applications near the exit was once an actress on a popular hospital TV series. You do what you have to. wink

We're only human. SometImes U have to do what U got to do to make ends meet.Plus a lot of times we don't make what people think we make. Then with agents,lawyers,manager fees and taxes it becomes expensive to maintain the living & lifestyle we are accustomed to.

Exactly. Between his occassional acting jobs, and I believe he teaches, it's probably not enough to make ends meet. He probably has a family to support. I just remembered that I actually met him years ago, when he was still on "Cosby".

Was he pleasant to U? If he takes this gig. His bills can be wiped out in one season. Tyler's "The Haves And The Have Nots" is the biggest hit on Oprah's OWN network.

Great! Some entertainers can be so standoffish and rude sometimes. But glad he wasn't to U.

No one should be shamed for working, making an honest living is always a good thing but if I was his boss I'd just tell him "just act like you're working!"

He is still working. But contrary to myth most actors are not wealthy. But I predict he will be given a big job soon... maybe Quentin Tarantino will give him something? But Good For him. And anyone that shames him should get bent.

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

Well since all this attention has caused him to have to quit his job at Whole Foods, I guess it's a wait and see if he takes what other acting offers he gets.
