Shemar Moore on Thomas Gibson Firing: Karma is Real!!

by at .  Updated at .

Criminal Minds alum Shemar Moore seemingly threw shade at Thomas Gibson after the latter got fired from the CBS show late last week. 

In a since-deleted Instagram video, the 46-year-old actor likely alluded to the events that got Thomas Gibson fired, saying “karma is real.”

Based on his history of violence on Criminal Minds? Yes.

Said Moore, an original cast member who parted ways with the procedural crime drama after 11 seasons (it's now heading into its 13th):

“Lot of birdies chirping out there. The gossip is real."

“I hear it. I see it. I’m sure a lot of you do too. So I’ll just say this. I believe that good things happen to good people. Honest people."

"Hardworking people. Humble people. People who believe in basic goodness," he adds. "Treat people how you expect them to treat you.”

Hmm ... who, and what, could he be referring to!?

Shemar went on to say that "good things will happen" in this world if you live life the right way and grind it out ... whatever that means.

Not act like Thomas Gibson does, we're guessing.

While Moore later deleted the video, nothing ever disappears from the Internet, and it was captured by a fan and reposted on Twitter.

He didn't name names, but the timing made it clear:

Moore was calling out Gibson, who was suspended for kicking a writer on the show last week and subsequently issued the pink slip.

"Thomas Gibson has been dismissed from Criminal Minds,” ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios said in a statement last Friday.

“Creative details for how the character’s exit will be addressed in the show will be announced at a later date,” the confirmation said.

Sources say Gibson was directing an episode that was written by Virgil Williams (pictured below, with the actor) that led to the dispute.

A dispute that turned ugly, very quickly and very publicly.

He disagreed with Williams when it came to an unknown "creative choice," which led to a few words being exchanged between them.

The incident culminated in Gibson kicking Williams in the shins and was seen by several producers, showrunner Erica Messer included.

Following the fight, Williams filed a formal complaint with human resources representatives for ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios.

Initially suspended for two weeks, the actor was fired.

There was no sugar coating, nor was there any gratitude shown to Gibson for his 12 years on the show, just this brief, succinct dismissal.

We may not have heard the last from him, though.

According to reports, Gibson may sue with the aid of Skip Miller, a prominent litigator with experience in entertainment industry disputes.

For his part, Moore parted ways with the series amicably and on his own terms in 2015 as his character, Derek Morgan, was written out.
