Criminal Minds’ Shemar Moore released a video on Instagram following Thomas Gibson’s dismissal from the show due to his alleged outbursts of violence.
According to Deadline, Gibson’s ex-manager Craig Dorfman filed a complaint that stated that he and Moore had “verbal altercations” and that Dorfman “talked Gibson out of physically attacking Moore.” Moore’s now-deleted Instagram video, which was saved by a Twitter user and re-posted online, addressed the set rumors without mentioning Gibson’s name.
“Lot of birdies chirping out there; the gossip is real,” said Moore. “I’ll just say this: I believe in karma. Good things happen to good people. Honest people. Hard-working people. Humble people. People who believe in basic goodness. Treat people how you expect them to treat you. Celebrate yourself and celebrate your blessings, as you should, but just know that you’re not better than anybody.”
Gibson’s attack on Moore is one of the two reported incidents of his violence against the Criminal Minds cast and crew, the other incident being his alleged kicking of writer-producer Virgil Williams. Watch Moore relay his message in the Twitter video.
