Of course the guy who played Elvin on the Cosby Show should be embarrassed to be working at Trader Joes. Bagging groceries is a job for slow adults and people who have been referred to the grocery store by various facilities. At the very least, he should be the guy with the key who only comes around when a hoodrat tries to get something for free, through sheer force of personality. I had a similar job, at Kmart, not long after I graduated from college, at a time when I hardly knew my own asshole from a hole in the wall. No homo.
It's since been revealed that the people who outed Elvin were a couple of lesbian hoodrats, and I wouldn't be surprised if they'd been in some sort of dispute with him. He looks upset in that photograph. Black lesbians have been known to pop shit to men, as if a man couldn't just go upside their heads. I don't care if it is the guy who played Elvin on the Cosby Show.
It doesn't make sense that Elvin would need to work anywhere. There must be more to this story. The Cosby Show was the most popular TV show there ever was. Elvin wasn't quite the star, but you make a lot of money on those shows even as a bit player. Artie Lange, as I recall, was making like $30,000 a week as the sidekick on that show he did with Norm. If you notice, all of the people on Twitter talking about how actors have to work between gigs to make ends meet are people literally no one has ever heard of.
I'm sure part of it is the fact that Elvin won't be receiving any residual checks from repeat airings of the Cosby Show ever again, now that the Cos is a convicted rapist awaiting sentencing and supposedly contemplating fleeing to the same island where Russell Simmons is hiding out, which, there's a sitcom if there ever was one. If only someone actually made it. Elvin could shave his head and play Russell Simmons—they're roughly the same age and complexion. But the TIs would never allow it, given the controversies surrounding those two, and I'm at a loss for what good that does anyone.
