Kathy Griffin Quits ‘Fashion Police,’ Announces Her Departure on Twitter

Kathy Griffin has followed in Kelly Osbourne’s footsteps by leaving E!’s Fashion Police. The comedian completed only seven episodes, but cited a difference in style and creative direction from the show in a lengthy paragraph pictured in a tweet.
She hinted that the decision to quit harkened back to the Zendaya Coleman debacle, in which fellow host Giuliana Rancic made racially insensitive comments about the actress. After explaining that she’s a comedian who doesn’t fear an offensive joke, Griffin writes, “But I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance toward difference.”
