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.

Just ask any lottery winner.

Sadly, life can also take a turn for the worst and leave people shattered beyond repair.
