Karma is very real according to former Criminal Minds star Shemar Moore, who spoke out on the topic in a now-deleted Instagram video on Friday, August 12.
The 46-year-old who ended his 11 season run as Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds this past March, posted a short video , and as it was shortly after his former co-star Thomas Gibson’s firing from the show, many think it may have been a comment on that.
“Lot of birdies chirping out there. The gossip is real,” he says in the video. “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. Good things happen to good people. Honest people. Hardworking people. Humble people. People who believe in basic goodness. People who believe in themselves. People who believe in others… Treat people how you expect them to treat you. Celebrate yourself. Celebrate your blessings, as you should. But just know, you’re not better than anybody. We all have our own gifts…”
Moore didn’t name any names in the video, but many quickly assumed he was speaking about his longtime co-star’s firing, which was fueled further after he deleted the post. Moore, however, could also be talking about another former co-star, Keith Tisdell, after it was revealed recently that the two struck up a friendship after Tisdell appeared in an episode of Criminal Minds with Moore. Tisdell ended up going into business with Moore, but then robbed Moore’s company of over $60,000 which he has now been ordered to pay back. “I’m not here for money. I’m here because he betrayed a friendship. This is not OK. You don’t do this to people,” Moore told a judge in court last week, so he very well could have been commenting on that situation as well.
