Global companies boycott Brunei owned hotels.


While a number of high-profile hotels owned by the kingdom of Brunei across the world have either deleted their social media pages or made them inaccessible amidst an ongoing backlash over anti-LGBT laws, global companies have decided to boycott them too. These actions came in wake of implementation of draconian laws introduced by Brunei leader Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah which includes death by stoning for people found guilty of gay sex or adultery.After US star George Clooney and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, musician Elton John and tennis star Billie Jean King stood against the hotels, TV Choice magazine announced on Twitter that the annual TV Choice Awards would no longer take place at London’s Dorchester Hotel, which operates under the Dorchester Collection brand, a luxury chain owned by the Sultan of Brunei.
