Tinseltown just made an epic mistake by firing Thomas Gibson from Criminal Minds. We are super fans. We’ve watched night after night, one un-sub after another. We remember Special Agent Aaron Hotchner back when he was young. Who stepped outside the pecking order? What happened? Did Hotch smash an executive’s wife, or nah? He was initially suspended for Chun-Li (ing) a co-executive producer during an argument about a script.
ABC Studios, announced Gibson’s termination saying: ‘Thomas Gibson has been dismissed from Criminal Minds.
‘Creative details for how the character’s exit will be addressed in the show will be announced at a later date.’
Fans were shocked, and we were too!
Gibson cried: ‘I love Criminal Minds and have put my heart and soul into it for the last 12 years.
‘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.’
