After just seven episodes, Kathy Griffin is saying goodbye to “Fashion Police.”

It’s shocking news, considering that Griffin was thought to be the rightful heir to Joan Rivers’ throne as Snarker-in-Chief. However, from Griffin’s statement, it sounds as though “Fashion Police” showrunners expected Griffin to rip stars’ bodies, not just their outfits, and that wasn’t something she was willing to do.

Wrote Griffin:

“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.”

Those are pretty serious words coming from Griffin, who found herself at odds with Hollywood’s stringent beauty standards.
