Earlier this week, news surfaced that Geoffrey Owens, best known for his role as Elvin Tibideaux, and the husband of Sondra Huxtable on The Cosby Show, was spotted working at a Trader Joe’s in Clifton, NJ.
According to Trader Joe’s shopper, Karma Lawrence, she told the Daily Mail she spotted the successful actor behind one of the checkout counters wearing a Trader Joe's staff shirt with his name tag.
"I was just in Trader Joe's and I said to my wife, I said, 'Wait a minute, that's the guy from The Cosby Show,'" Karma Lawrence told the popular news source.
Our sentiments exactly.
After searching online, her suspicion was confirmed.
"I pulled up a site on the Internet to look at a picture of him and said, 'That is him,'" she confirmed. "I have never seen him at Trader Joe's before. I was getting a bunch of groceries and he wasn't really looking at anybody, but he said, 'Have a nice day.'"
After the news was released and photos were placed on the internet, trolls began what they do best—judge.
While some were quick to place judgment on the 57-year-old actor, others came to his defense setting the record straight with the perfect question: “What’s wrong with a Black man making an honest living?”
