Kathy Griffin has quit E!’s Fashion Police after only seven episodes. Kathy’s exit comes after E! host and fellow co-host Giuliana Rancic got blasted for making inappropriate comments about Zendaya Coleman’s dreadlocks on the show and just days after co-host Kelly Osbourne’s exit firing.
The Emmy award-winning comedienne tweeted on Thursday 12, March:
“I discovered that my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show and now it’s time to move on. When I chose to step into the shoes of my beloved Joan Rivers…I was thrilled to continue her legacy as a woman being brash and eccentric on television. I am a freedom-loving female and gay rights activist who loves to find the funny in all people, attitudes, beliefs, and appearances, but only when the context permits intelligent humor. My brand of humor, while unrepentant and unafraid, is all about CONTEXT…Listen, I am no saint…But I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference. I want to help women, gay kids, people of color and anyone who feels underrepresented to have a voice and a LAUGH!”
