We all know him as, Elvin on The Cosby Show from 1985 to 1992. He has since appeared on a number of shows, including Divorce, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Secret Life of the American Teenager and, Built to Last.

Recently, Geoffrey Owens has been the butt of social media jokes. For the purpose of laughs, a rude customer, in my opinion, invaded Owen's privacy, by snapping a photo of the actor bagging groceries at a New Jersey Trader Joe's. The photo was then published in Daily Mail, expecting to shame Owens.
