TYLER PERRY OFFERS ‘COSBY SHOW’S GEOFFREY OWENS A ROLE AFTER PUBLIC JOB-SHAMINGSeptember 6, 2018
After someone posted a picture of Owens bagging groceries at Trader Joe’s, the man behind Elvin Tibideaux was a victim to job-shaming. He even had to quit his job because of all of the attention that followed the picture. However, many – famous and not famous – came to his defense on making an honest living.
“The period of devastation was so short because so shortly after that, the responses, my wife and I started to read [them] … and fortunately the shame part didn’t last very long,” he said. “It’s amazing.”
#GeoffreyOwens I’m about to start shootings OWN’s number one drama next week! Come join us!!! I have so much respect for people who hustle between gigs. The measure of a true artist.

Owens has since called the job offer very “encouraging,” but there is no word to whether he has formally accepted or not. We’re rooting for you, Geoffrey!
