Kathy Griffin only lasted 7 episodes on Fashion Police and she’s thrown in the towel. In a long tweet, the comedian gave her reasons as to why she quit.
“After 7 episodes of Fashion Police, I discovered that my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show & now it’s time to move on.”

Griffin added, “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.”
In a statement E! confirmed Griffin’s departure, “We can confirm that Kathy Griffin is leaving E!’s ‘Fashion Police,'” E! wrote in a statement. “We wish her all the best and are grateful for her time on the show, as well as the many laughs that she gave us all. ‘Fashion Police’ will return, as scheduled, on Monday, March 30, at 9 p.m. with our talented co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski, and executive producer Melissa Rivers. No further information is available at this time.”
Griffin’s exit comes on the heels of Kelly Osbourne quitting after Guiliana Rancic made an offensive comment about Zendaya Coleman’s hair. Osbourne applauded Griffin’s exit.
