Many celebs came out in support of a former star on the "Cosby Show" after a photo of him working at Starbucks went viral.

57-year-old Geoffrey Owens played the character Elvin Cliff on the show. After the photo was posted online, many say the photo as a form of job shaming and came to his defense.

Athlete turned actor Terry Crews wrote about how he swept floors after the NFL and there was nothing to be ashamed of.


Patricia Heaton from "Everybody Loves Raymond" asked why it was news and said she was summarizing depositions to pay her rent while staring on "Raymond."


Geoffrey Owens says he chose to work at a Trader Joe's in New Jersey out of necessity. The job also offers the flexibility needed to go on auditions. 

He says he was "really devastated" at first when the photo was posted but now he is happy that so many celebrities and other people jumped to his defense.
