Karma Lawrence has been living up to her first name after she snapped a photo of former Cosby Show actor Geoffrey Owens after he cashed her out a New Jersey Trader Joe’s. As we know, the photo went viral after Karma sent the pic to celebrity websites and the Daily Mail and now she tells NJ.com that she seriously regrets ever taking the photo in the first place.
“I don’t know why I snuck a picture,” the 50-year-old explains. “I figured everybody does it. I don’t know what possessed me. I just did it. I didn’t even think about it. I just kind of did it on impulse and it was a bad impulse.”
Apparently, Karma didn’t get paid for the photo and after the photo hit the web, her social media inboxes were flooded with all kinds of hate mail. “So much hate. So much nastiness. Oh, it’s been terrible,” she says. “They write Karma’s a bitch. It’s bad.”
She details how she had no ill intentions with the pic and how she wanted to approach him, but thought she would embarrass him – she should have stuck to her first plan. “I’m not the monster they’re making me out to be,” she adds.
If she could tell Geoffrey anything, it would be this: “I am extremely, extremely apologetic about what has happened and if I could take it back, I would.”
Geoffrey paid a visit to Good Morning America to talk about the debacle and he remained humble and appreciative of the people who supported him against Karma’a actions. Check out his interview here.
