Just when we thought Kelly Osborne’s goodbye was just about enough, the late Joan River’s replacement; Kathy Griffin follows suit in an equal exit just as sudden and unprecedented from E ‘s Fashion Police.
After just two months and seven episodes, Kathy Griffin walks away after making the announcement on Twitter Thursday night.
Griffin’s statement ran thus:
“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. I thought that I could bring my brand of humor to Fashion Police so that beautiful people in beautiful dresses could be teased when appropriate. My brand of humor, while unrepentant and unafraid, is all about CONTEXT. There is plenty to make fun of in pop culture without bringing people’s bodies into it. Again people … context! Listen, I’m no saint – I’m a feminist AND a Gurrrrl who loves an offensive joke or a well-timed barb and you will find plenty in my repertoire. But I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference.”
Kelly Osborne who left the show last month even showed her support for Griffin’s decision to quit via her twitter handle in these words: “I could not be more proud of you @kathygriffin you have my love and support always! ”
Since the passing of Joan Rivers and after one of the hosts Guiliana Rancic received a rancid bashing from the public after saying that the singer Zendaya Coleman’s deadlocked hair would smell of “patchouli oil or weed.” She apologized twice, once on social media, and again on E. But the cookie crumbled real fast soon after, as former host Kelly Osborne, who is friends with Zendaya, departed from the show, which after five years of dedicated participation.
Now the popular fashion critique programme is now left with two hosts, Guiliana Rancic and Brad Goreski…
Is this an end to the show we’ve all come to love?
