The actor Geoffrey Owens has quit his job at a N.J. Trader Joe's after being shamed by outlets like Fox News, but he says the support that has come his way has been "overwhelming."
Stars shared their stories of the highs and lows of Hollywood in the wake of the photo.
Fox News is being accused by many on social media of shaming former “Cosby Show” actor Geoffrey Owen after it reported he was spotted bagging groceries in a New Jersey Trader Joe’s. The “Cosby Show” alum – who played Sondra Huxtable’s husband Elvin on the final five seasons of the hit sitcom from 1985 to 1992 — was captured on camera by a shopper at a Clifton, New Jersey market, and Fox ran with it. The outlet was criticized on social media for what many saw as a former actor just trying to make a living.
