Shemar Moore may be done with “Criminal Minds,” but the man who played Derek Morgan seems to still to have strong opinions about the behind-the-scenes drama on the CBS show.
Moore recently posted and removed an Instagram video in which he cryptically spoke about karma in the wake of Thomas Gibson’s firing from the CBS series.
He didn’t address Gibson or the ABC Studios-produced show by name, but readers can draw their own conclusions on the timing and message. The video was caught Friday evening by a Twitter user, who said Moore had “just posted” it.
“Lotta birdies chirping out there — the gossip is real. I hear it, I see it — I’m sure a lot of you do too,” Moore began. “So 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. People who believe in themselves. People who believe in others.”
“Good things will happen to you. It’s not always easy, but you gotta grind it out and you gotta believe in you,” he continued. “Treat people how you expect them to treat you. Celebrate yourself, celebrate your blessings — as you should.”
“But just know that you’re not better than anybody. We all have our own gifts, so unwrap those bad boys and show ‘em off — but then appreciate other people’s gifts,” Moore continued. “Church is over.”
In the interest of fairness, it is possible that Moore is referring to another newly settled issue from his “Criminal Minds” days. On Friday, the handsome actor was granted just north of $60,000 from two-time guest star Keith Tisdell, who allegedly embezzled the cash from Moore’s charity, Baby Girl LLC.
Or maybe it’s a totally unrelated third option Moore is preaching about — who knows.
Watch the video below and judge for yourself.
