In an interview session that took place a while ago, popular actor and fashion model, Shemar Moore, discussed some of the hardships that he went through due to his skin color and further revealed that he was even bullied at some point.
Shemar Moore, who is best known for his role as “Derek Morgan” in the CBS’s “Criminal Minds,” might seem like someone with a trouble-free life on the outside, but the reality is that the 49-year-old has encountered various problems before he encountered stardom and even after that.
