The former Aaron Hotchner depicter addresses his firing as he joins Twitter, while Shemar Moore denies that his 'karma' comment was about his former co-star Gibson.

AceShowbiz - Thomas Gibson is joining Twitter to stay in touch with his fans following his "Criminal Minds" firing. In his first tweet posted on Tuesday, August 16, the former Aaron Hotchner depicter addressed his dismissal from the long-running CBS series. "I wish I could thank each of you for your friendship & support. I love 'Criminal Minds,' & I'm disappointed by what's happened," he wrote.

He added in another tweet, "I'm here on #Twitter so we can stay connected in the days to come, and talk directly with each other." He also posted, "The support you show means the world to me and my family. This is not an ending, but a beginning as well. Thank you all."

The 54-year-old actor who is also known for portraying Greg Montgomery on ABC's series "Dharma & Greg" additionally shared a link to his Instagram picture showing him and his dog on a boat. "Hazel and I both looking forward to what's down the road...," so he captioned it.

Gibson was let go from the police procedural series following his physical altercation with writer/executive producer Virgil Williams on the set, during which he reportedly kicked the producer in the leg. He was initially suspended from the drama series, before his contract was terminated. He's later said considering to take legal action against producers following his firing.

A new report says Gibson's argument with the producer wasn't the only thing that caused his firing. The recent incident was the last straw for ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios after two prior flare-ups, including his 2013 arrest for suspicion of DUI. The other incident took place in December 2010, when he allegedly shoved "Criminal Minds" assistant director Ian Woolf during a late-night location shoot.

Meanwhile, former "Criminal Minds" star Shemar Moore has denied that his recent Instagram video in which he talked about "karma" was about Gibson. "Oh no. They spun that all wrong," he told TMZ when asked if he was referring to his former co-star Gibson in the now-deleted video.
