Nicki Minaj called out the person who posted pics of “Cosby Show” actor Geoffrey Owens working as a clerk at a Trader Joe’s and vowed to give him $25,000 in response.

“I personally want to donate, on behalf of #QueenRadio, $25,000 to #GeoffreyOwens today. That man is a legend in these streets,” the 35-year-old rapper shared Thursday on her “Queen Radio” show, according to Entertainment Tonight.

The comment came as the “Bang Bang” singer announced her “cocksucker of the day, awarding it to Karma Lawrence and her wife for allegedly “trying to humiliate” Owens by posting a photo of him bagging groceries in New Jersey.”

Since that time, Owens has been offered a job on Tyler Perry’s new show on the OWN network and received positive feedback from people all over the country praising him for his efforts.

Owens told Good Morning America on Tuesday that all the attention has been “bizarre” but “a lot of fun.”

“It’s been surreal,” the 57-year-old actor shared. “It’s been nonstop contact and emails, phone calls, texts and interviews. It’s actually bizarre — a lot of fun though.”
