Kelly Osbourne, Lena Dunham and More Publicly Support Kathy Griffin's 'Fashion Police' Exit
“I could not be more proud of you,” said Kelly Osbourne.
Kathy Griffin just announced she is leaving Fashion Police after only seven episodes, due to differences in "creative direction." Her lengthy statement proclaiming her support for "women, gay kids, people of color and anyone who feels underrepresented" has received strong praise and recognition from the Hollywood community.
Kelly Osbourne, who recently left Fashion Police soon after Giuliana Rancic's controversial comments about Zendaya, tweeted about how proud she was. Lena Dunham congratulated Griffin for "saying enough is enough to intolerance" and Mindy Kaling told Griffin she was "so cool."
Here's a look at what Hollywood had to say:

Not everyone was supportive of Kathy's statement. Piers Morgan called the comedian a hypocrite.
This is the same Kathy Griffin whose whole career has been predicated on bitching about people and being mean, right? #HypocritePolice— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 13, 2015
