TYLER PERRY OFFERS ‘COSBY SHOW’S GEOFFREY OWENS A ROLE AFTER PUBLIC JOB-SHAMING

September 6, 2018

Cosby Show star Geoffrey Owens has had quite the turbulent week.

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.”

He went on Good Morning America to do an interview about the incident, and afterwards Tyler Perry reached out to him via Twitter and offered him a job.

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!
