Some of these media outlets aren’t worth the hosting and keystrokes!
Fox News is getting slammed for trying to shame former “Cosby Show” star Geoffrey Owens for working at a New Jersey Trader Joe’s.
Geoffrey starred on the show as Elvin Tibideaux, a young doctor and husband of the Huxtable’s eldest daughter, Sondra.
The headline on their site reads, ‘Cosby Show’ actor Geoffrey Owens spotted bagging groceries at NJ Trader Joe’s…AND?!
It’s really pathetic and obvious that they put the spotlight on Geoffrey, who is minding his own business and earning an honest living, with no intentions other than being petty.
That’s okay! Social media rallied around the actor and blasted Fox News for being the garbage we’ve always known them to be.

There is NO SHAME in honest work. Life gets hard & shit gets real.
That said, if #GeoffreyOwens is still interested in working in this crazy, non-linear industry, I hope this resurfacing of his name leads someone to cast him in something HUGE. Make him trend.#actorslife pic.twitter.com/D7APKEc7M5

OUR community needs to employ #GeoffreyOwens for this disrespectful Fox News post.
This attempt to humiliate a man earning an honest living is pathetic.

I’d love to see 1 of 10 NY-based TV productions bring #GeoffreyOwens in to read for a guest spot, even though the clown who broadcast the original shaming via his blog would claim some sort of credit.

Dear,#GeoffreyOwens it's really good to see you looking healthy!
-Everyone who believes that employment a *good* thing.

Why does @FoxNews think working for a living is shameful? He acts a little, teaches and works a job providing good benefits. No shame in that. And #TraderJoes, why do you tolerate a security manager colluding to publicly shame an employee? Hostile work environment #GeoffreyOwens

@TeamCavuto : I would like to shake Geoffrey Owens’ hand. It’s so sad that people always want to talk sh!t. So many people focus on the negative for their own sad enjoyment without even knowing the full story. God Bless Him & #PositivianVibes #GeoffreyOwens

Can we stop taking pictures of former TV/movie stars in normal human lives long after they've been in the media? No one is looking for pity or wonder at what "they've become". You're the worst off for publicizing them. #geoffreyowens #cosbyshow

This really pisses me off. I’m a fan of Geoffrey’s & when he’s right for something I always bring him in to read. He’s talented & I think age looks great on him!
Check out his IMDB page. He’s a working actor in NY. But guess what? Actors can’t make living wages like that anymore. https://t.co/a2sLSg68tS
