The Game encourages Geoffrey Owens to keep his head held high.
A few days ago, a photo began to circulate the web of Geoffrey Owens, former star of The Cosby Show, working at a Trader Joe's. As ruthless as the internet regularly gets, the actor was shamed for working a second job. Whether his acting gigs had stalled or he was simply happier working at the grocery store, the response that he got was unexpected and downright mean for the most part. Many are beginning to realize the error of their ways and now, Owens is being praised for doing what he can to make ends meet. A few in the hip-hop community have spoken out on the viral photo and The Game decided to step in, calling the man a hero on Instagram.
Choosing Labor Day, a day of rest for most, to make the statement, Game shared an image of the Cosby Show actor before giving him the high praise. He wrote, "#LaborDay hero goes out to #GeoffreyOwens." Offering as much encouragement as he could, the West Coast rapper continued, "Walk with your head held high brotha ✊🏾."
While Owens had no say in the photo breaking out, it could end up helping him earn roles in the long run as he's now gone viral. Big ups to Geoffrey Owens and to Game as well.
