Comedienne Kathy Griffin has gotten widespread support following her decision to leave E!’s Fashion Police.
Griffin had quit the show over its methods, posting her resignation in a statement on Twitter.
“I thought I could bring my brand of humor to Fashion Police so that beautiful people in beautiful dresses could be teased when appropriate,” she had written in her statement.
“My brand of humor, while unrepentent and unafraid, is all about CONTEXT … I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference.”
Among those who praised Griffin included former co-host Kelly Osbourne, and hosts Chelsea Handler and Wendy Williams.
