Karma Lawrence, the woman who took a picture of Geoffrey Owens working in a Trader Joe’s and sourced it to multiple news outlets, now says regrets doing so.
In an interview with NJ.com, the 50-year-old New Jersey woman says she never intended to shame the former “Cosby Show” star.
She claims she channeled her inner paparazzi and acted on an impulse. Why? Because everybody does it.
I don’t know why I snuck a picture. I figured everybody does it. I don’t know what possessed me. I just did it. I didn’t even think about it. I just kind of did it on impulse and it was a bad impulse.
It wasn’t malicious. That’s on my kids, my grandkids, my parents. I’m not that type of a person. I’m not the monster they’re making me out to be.
When I saw him working there I thought maybe because of everything with Bill Cosby that his residuals got cut. And people have to take a normal job. But I didn’t think anything bad about it. I work a normal job.
But, when folks swooped down on her behind and she began receiving nasty messages and hate mail, she realized she made a very poor decision.
So much hate. So much nastiness. Oh, it’s been terrible. They write Karma’s a b****. It’s bad.
Karma Lawrence claims she can’t sleep, she’s deactivated all of her social media accounts, and she’s so hurt she inadvertently hurt Geoffrey Owens.
First of all…sis is half a century old and is should know better.
Secondly, what did she think news outlets were going to do with the picture.
I have no sympathy for her.
