Popular CRIMINAL MINDS actor Thomas Gibson was fired as a result of an on-set altercation two weeks ago, where he was directing and starring in an episode and a creative differences argument broke out between Gibson and a producer. The argument escalated where Gibson kicked the producer in the shin. Reportedly, Gibson was involved in a similar incident a few years ago and given a warning.

Gibson has been on CRIMINAL MINDS all 12 seasons, while some other cast members have come and gone. Today, Gibson released a very sincere statement on how much he loves the show and cast and fans, where some reason to hope that the producers reconsider their firing may still exist.
