Geoffrey Owens' Response To Those Trying To Shame Him For Bagging Groceries Is Pure Class ❤️

On August 31, Fox News shared a photo of Cosby Show actor Geoffrey Owens bagging groceries at a Trader Joe's. The accompanying article, however, seemed to treat that job as shameful and lesser than other jobs. The internet community quickly rallied behind him, denouncing Fox for their critical coverage of a person making ends meet with a decent, well-paying job.

Owens himself made an appearance on Good Morning America to respond to Fox's initial story as well as the innumerable responses in his defense.


Owens's outlook was both inspirational and pragmatic—exactly what the world needs more of!



Many viewers also couldn't help but note Owen's hat/name-tag combo. A Yale graduate should feel free to work wherever he or she likes.



Every job is worthwhile.


And, in the meantime, it seem's Geoffrey's message has caught some eyes in Hollywood!

Sadly, because of the attention from Fox's story, it seems Geoffrey felt he needed to quit his job at Trader Joe's.

Hopefully the internet learned a lesson from this experience—no one should be shamed for their job, because there's nothing embarrassing about working hard to support yourself and your family, no matter where you do it.

As Forrest Gump famously quipped "stupid is as stupid does".

Forrest was right, as far too many people judged him by purely looking at him, which should not have been indicative of his, or anyone's, overall intelligence.

Even so, we've likely all been guilty of judging someone's intelligence based on a first impression.

Likely owing to something outrageous they said or did.

It's hard to ignore gossip and rumors at work, whether at the water cooler, in the bathroom, or in an email sent to the wrong recipient.

Of course, sometimes gossip is nothing more than just that, with no truth or validity to it whatsoever.

Other times, however, it turns out to be accurate, and what's more, should it become public knowledge, it could become truly damaging to the company's reputation and business.

Hence why many companies make all their employees sign an NDA, often preventing them from sharing information about whether they continue to work at the company or not.

Not all companies are as careful, however, resulting in some employees leaving with the knowledge that could one day force the company to go under.
