  • Cosby star Geoffrey owns accepts offer from Tyler Perry for 10 episode run

In late August, the Daily Mail published photos of Owens working as a cashier at a New Jersey Trader Joe's.

"I was only devastated for an hour or two", Owens said.

Owens told CNN in an interview on Tuesday that while he was initially devastated by the job-shaming attention, the support he received on social media was overwhelmingly positive. Not just for me, but for working people.

During her radio show, Nicki finally let fan know that she wanted to help Owens in any ay she can.


After seeing " Cosby Show" alum Geoffrey Owens working at a Trader Joe's grocery store between acting gigs, Nicki Minaj says she wants to give him $25,000.

"The film mogul tweeted out "#GeoffreyOwens I'm about to start shootings OWN's number one drama next week! The show, based off Perry's 2011 play of the same name, premiered on OWN (The Oprah Winfrey Network) on May 28, 2013. "I just want to help him in any way I can". We know that Owens was hesitant to take a role that he got just because of his viral fame, but we imagine that he and Perry had some great conversations about this before he agreed to take the job.

On Queen Radio, the 35-year-old embarked on a foul-mouthed rant over the picture and called Owens a "whole f-ing legend on these streets". And we'll see what happens with that.

"Why you want to embarrass this hard-working man?" she asked, adding "Y'all don't know how hard it is to keep getting jobs...and you want to put somebody up on the fu**ing internet?" A single photograph made him one of the most talked about actors in America as well as allow people to reflect on the dedication and risk that goes into pursuing a career in acting. "I didn't feel like that was going to be good for my spiritual being, so I felt like I needed to at least temporarily step out, and I think that was the wise thing to do, actually".
