Carroll labelled Moss 'unacceptable' and accused the official of trying to even the game up having earlier given West Ham their first penalty away from home in the Premier League for five and a half years, as reported by the Telegraph.
It wasn't just West Ham who were unhappy, though, as Leicester’s players were also incensed with the performance of the West Yorkshire official after the dismissal of Jamie Vardy for diving.
Leicester skipper Wes Morgan revealed he and his teammates had been ordered to stay silent after the game.
Reffing hell for Jonathan Moss
Since then pundits and fans of clubs up and down the country have entered the debate on social media and radio phone-ins so high were the stakes for both teams.
While Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri declined to criticise Moss Hammers manager Slaven Bilic admitted he felt sorry for the official.
Bilic's assistant manager Nikola Jurcevic hit out at Moss telling the club's official website the referee cost his side dear.
But Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher felt Moss got the decision right to penalise Carroll for a foul in the dying stages in his analysis on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football.
'Carragher got it wrong'
Now speaking in his blog on Coral, record Premier League goalscorer Shearer completely disagreed.
"Going into the last few minutes, it seemed to me that the ref sensed he had messed up and consciously or not evened it up," Shearer wrote on Coral.
"He gave Leicester a penalty when Andy Carroll challenged Jeff Schlupp.
"Let’s be honest, it was never a penalty in a million years."
The former Newcastle United legend then followed that up with a post on Twitter to make clear that he felt Carragher had called it wrong.
He said: "I did watch (Monday Night Football).
"Jamie Carragher agreed with me on every one but Carroll.
"On that one he's wrong. Shoulder to shoulder. No pen."
