The comedienne Kathy Griffin has departed the overly obnoxious, judgmental, and downright rude show, 'Fashion Police'. After a short stint of just 7 episodes, Griffin has left due to not agreeing with it's most important rule. Judge everyone and everything in the rudest way possible. I couldn't applaud her more. I have the same feeling for that show as I do when I am grazing through my channels and happen to pass Nancy Grace. My hands quiver a bit, and my eyelids shrink. Nothing good comes from that show. Nothing. A small group of people sit in a room and judge others look, grace, and bodies. What for? So others can sit at home and judge the people, as well as the ones judging the people. Nothing screams immature and jealous more than that.

Now off short rant. Griffin has gotten a load of support from people for her decision. Rightfully so. I can't see how anyone could say anything negative about her reasoning to leave. Other than, "you know what you signed up for". But then again, the person saying that is more than likely a supporter of the show. Which we have already covered those kind of people.

Griffin had this to say in greater detail of her reasoning, "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."

Just to name a few people who have spoke out in support:

Even her co-star Kelly Osbourne supports her decision. Tweeting this:
"I could not be more proud of you @kathygriffin you have my love and support always!"

Lena Dunham, The creator and Star of the tv show 'Girls' said:
"Congrats to my beautiful friend Kathy Griffin for bravely saying enough is enough to intolerance of all kinds on television. She's modeling a better way for the youths,"

Jayne Lynch, star of 'Glee'
"My brave and courageous friend @kathygriffin You're one classy dame. Onward and upward,"

I wonder who they will replace Griffin with. I guess the viewers will have to wait in their perfect wardrobe, with their perfect bodies, and their perfect makeup to see.
