Young Money’s Nicki Minaj is way more than emotional over the job shaming former “Cosby Show” actor Geoffrey Owens experienced these past few days. The hip-hop superstar went to social media to pen a must-read on the Hollywood veteran.

Nicki went to Instagram last night (September 5) and promised to dedicate her new “Queen Radio” show to discussing what Owens has gone through.

WHO GOD BLESS NO MAN CAN CURSE!!!!!!!!!! When will y’all realize that you only curse YOURSELF when you try to humiliate & hurt people?!?!!! I wish I had a show, I’d do the same thing! But praise be to GOD that Mr. Tyler Perry & Queen OPRAH DOES have a show! A FEW SHOWS!!!!! 🙏🏽 the internet is so toxic & disgusting!!! This man is a whole LEGEND in these streets!!!! Major part of our child hood!!!! Barbz, find the person who took this pic & uploaded it to the internet. I just wanna talk. They don’t want us working in between our acting jobs, they want us on drugs & doing home invasions on THEIR HOMES!!!!!!! That’s when they’ll be SATISFIED!!!! This man minds his own business!!!! He’s not on the internet being messy & seeking attention. Someone GOT PAID for this photo!!!! I can’t wait for #QueenRadio this week. I’m giving #GeoffreyOwens a small token of our appreciation. We will NOT treat our own like this for a cpl of fucking laughs & memes! I CURSE everyone responsible. You JUST WATCH!!!!!

Once Geoffrey pics went viral, various hip-hop stars came to his defense.

In addition to hip-hop support, various Hollywood entertainers have come through to support Owens.


Publication Fox News ultimately took serious heat for running the Owens story.

Some accused Fox News of being hypocrites because their on-air anchors are constantly talking about “economic anxiety” among older, working-class Americans, The Wrap reported. “‘Geoffrey Owens still acts occasionally, works at Trader Joe’s, and ministers to others in need, setting a good example for people everywhere. What a great guy,’ That’s what @FoxNews should have said,” Texas Congressional candidate Dayna Steele wrote on Twitter. (USA Today)
