Playing Shemar Moore Speaks Out After 'Criminal Minds' Co-Star Thomas Gibson Fired: 'I Believe in Karma'

Is Shemar Moore weighing in on his former Criminal Minds co-star Thomas Gibson's recent firing?

The 46-year-old actor spoke out about "karma" after the news broke -- and referred to "gossip" going around -- in an Instagram video which has since been deleted.

"Lot of birdies chirping out there. The gossip is real," Moore says in the video, directly addressing the camera. "I hear it. I see it. I'm sure a lot of you do too."

"So I'll just say this -- I believe in karma," he continues. "Good things happen to good people. Honest people. Hardworking people. Humble people. People who believe in basic goodness. People who believe in themselves. People that believe in others. Good things will happen to you. ... Treat people how you expect them to treat you."

Moore also tells his followers to "appreciate" other people's talents.

"Celebrate yourselves. Celebrate your blessings, as you should," he says. "But just know that you're not better than anybody. We all have our own gifts, so unwrap those bad boys and show them off -- but then appreciate other people's gifts. Church is over."

Moore never mentions Gibson's name in the video, but some Criminal Minds fans speculate that he was referring to the 54-year-old actor, who was let go after allegedly kicking a writer in the leg during an on-set disagreement. Moore starred alongside Gibson as FBI agent Derek Morgan on the hit CBS show for 11 seasons, before exiting in March.

Gibson, who portrays agent Aaron Hotchner on the crime drama, has since retained legal services after his firing from Criminal Minds last week. Skip Miller of Los Angeles-based law firm Miller Barondess confirmed to ET on Sunday that his firm is representing the former Dharma & Greg actor.

"I love Criminal Minds and have put my heart and soul into it for the last twelve years," Gibson said in a statement on Friday. "I had hoped to see it through to the end, but that won't be possible now. I would just like to say thank you to the writers, producers, actors, our amazing crew, and, most importantly, the best fans that a show could ever hope to have."

Meanwhile, Moore is dealing with his own personal drama, after he was robbed of $61,084 by an actor and former colleague who guest-starred on Criminal Minds. According to court documents obtained by ET, Keith Tisdell, 42, was convicted on charges that he stole money from Moore. An agreement was reached last Wednesday, in which Tisdell will repay Moore.

"Appreciate who and what is good in your life... We all have to weather storms from time to time," Moore Instagrammed on Friday. "Learn lessons... But find your smile and keep dreaming n pushing... Embrace your blessings!!"
