Hollywood, CA, United States (4E) – “Criminal Minds” star Thomas Gibson was fired from the show last week and now, he has sought the help of a lawyer regarding the firing.
Gibson hired Miller Barondess law firm to evaluate if he could file a lawsuit against the “Criminal Minds” heads over his firing. The 54-year-old actor starred on “Criminal Minds” sine 2005 as Special Agent Aaron Hotchner .
According to reports, Gibson was fired from “Criminal Minds” for being physical with a writer during a confrontation. Reports say that Gibson was acting and directed a scene for “Criminal Minds” when he got into an argument with the writer. Accordingly, the argument was initially just verbal but eventually turned physical when Gibson kicked the writer in the leg. Gibson was suspended for two weeks but eventually was let go.
CBS Television Studios and ABC Studios said in a statement confirming that Gibson has been dismissed from “Criminal Minds” and the creative details about the exit of his characters from the show will be announced later.
After his firing, Gibson released a statement saying that he loves “Criminal Minds” and has put his heart and soul into it for the last twelve years. He shared that he hopes to be part of “Criminal Minds” through the end but it will no longer be possible due to his termination. He thanked the writers, producers, actors, “amazing crew,” and the fans in his statement.
Shemar Moore also supposedly shaded Gibson in a post on Instagram . He said, “I believe in karma. Good things happen to good people.” He also wrote in his post that good things happen to honest people, humble people, and people who know “basic goodness.” He added that no one is better than anybody. The post has since been deleted but many believe that it is directed to Gibson.
Gibson is yet to comment on Moore’s supposed shading.
