Thomas Gibson’s character on Criminal Minds constantly attempted to stay calm, cool, and gathered while handling extreme circumstances. Nevertheless, the star relatively wasn’t able to do the same in his own expert life. In December 2010, Gibson “supposedly pushed” assistant director Ian Woolf “throughout a late-night place shoot,” according to Variety. Obviously, the “event rattled staffers because it appeared to mark an escalation of on-set stress for Gibson.” Those who dealt with the program were allegedly “surprise [d] that he didn’t deal with harsher discipline from ABC Studios, the lead production entity on the program.” In reality, he was sent out to anger management classes … which may not have actually worked.
In 2016, Gibson was suspended from the program for supposedly kicking an author in the leg. The star declared what he did was “in retaliation” after the author had actually revealed “aggressive” habits towards him. “There were imaginative distinctions on the set and a difference. I am sorry for that it took place,” Gibson informed TMZ. “We all wish to interact as a group to make the very best program possible. We constantly have and constantly will.”
A source who talked to Page Six appeared to support Gibson’s side of the story, stating that the event really included co-executive manufacturer Virgil Williams, who “is a fighter and a martial artist, he’s no angel.” The expert included that “Williams presumably initiated the occurrence” and “got really aggressive.” Approved, that didn’t conserve Gibson from being fired after what had actually decreased.
