"I am terminating Craig Gore immediately", Dick Wolf said in his statement to the entertainment outlet.

In the photo, Gore wore a black bandanna over his face as he stood outside of his front door with the gun in hand.

As friends began chiming in on the post, Gore continued his sentiment in the comments section.

On Monday, Gore posed with a rifle in his doorway for a Facebook post warning protestors in the comments, "Sunset is being looted two blocks from me". You think I wont light mother*****s up who are trying to f*** w/ my property I worked all my life for? "Think again..." The post has been deleted.

Christopher Meloni, the former "Law & Order: SVU" star who will head the cast of "Law & Order: Organized Crime", pushed back against online critics that referred to Gore as an executive producer, or show runner, on the new series. He responded to a tweet about Gore, saying Matt Olmstead is the new series' showrunner and he had no knowledge of any hirings.

They could be a racist, or a bigot, or just all-around violent.

This seemed to be the case with a writer and producer whose resume includes Chicago P.D. and S.W.A.T.

"Law and Order" writer and producer Craig Gore was sacked from the show Tuesday after pledging on social media to defend law and order. I have no idea who this person is or what they do, ' Chris replied on Twitter on Tuesday.

The statements come as protests continue throughout the country in response to the death of George Floyd, an African-American man who was killed at the hands of white police officers on May 25 in Minneapolis, Minn.
