Dick Wolf has fired writer Craig Gore from the upcoming Law & Order: SVU spinoff, Law & Order: Organized Crime, after he posted a series of controversial posts on Facebook about looters and the newly imposed curfews put in place in Los Angeles.
"I will not tolerate this conduct, especially during our hour of national grief. I am terminating Craig Gore immediately," Wolf said in a statement posted on his company's official Twitter page.
In photos posted on social media, Gore is seen holding a gun and captioning it "curfew." In another comment, Gore -- whose credits also include S.W.A.T. and Chicago P.D. -- threatens to "light motherf**kers up who are trying to f**k with my property."

“I will not tolerate this conduct, especially during our hour of national grief. I am terminating Craig Gore immediately.”
In a statement given to ET, a company spokesperson for Paradigm Talent Agency, the agency that represented Gore, said it has cut ties with him.
"Craig Gore is no longer a Paradigm client. We condemn his post in the strongest possible terms," the spokesperson said.
Drew Janda, writer for Greenleaf, Big Little Lies and Barry, brought Gore's post to attention on Twitter, tagging the Law & Order spinoff star Chris Meloni. Gore had previously identified himself on his Facebook profile as co-executive producer on the show, according to Variety.
