Rivers’ former co-stars on E!’s Fashion Police expressed their anger during the show’s Oscars special on Monday night.

1. Many people have been outraged over the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences leaving Joan Rivers out of the “In Memoriam” montage during the Oscars on Sunday.

2. And during Monday’s Oscars edition of Fashion Police, a show Rivers helmed until her death in September, her former co-star Giuliana Rancic shared her thoughts on the situation.


Her “fuck you” and middle fingers were bleeped and blurred, but viewers could still clearly make out what she was saying and doing.

“Let’s all blame [The Academy]. Lets’ blame them for everything,” Rancic continued. “Amen,” Kelly Osbourne added.

Then, Rivers’ successor Kathy Griffin, said, “Can we kind of take a moment with that because when I was watching that I thought, Meryl Steep is out there and she kept saying like, ‘People who push the boundaries and stuff.’ So when they left Joan out of that, I thought it was really a miss. And she was in feature films and I thought that was an odd miss. But it’s almost like even posthumously, she’s still a rebel.”

Brad Goreski, Osbourne, and Rancic all clapped in agreement.

BuzzFeed News’ request for comment from E! and Rancic were not immediately returned.
