Geoffrey Owens went to work at Trader Joe’s shortly after the Bill Cosby sex scandal broke.
You may recall that reruns of The Cosby Show aired 24-hours a day. Geoffrey Owens collected a small amount of money each time he appeared in a rerun. But TV Land, Hulu and BET pulled the show once several women accused Cosby of sexual harassment and assault.
Owens explained to People magazine, (quote) “The scandal impacted me financially. The Cosby Show paid me some fairly decent money.”
