George Clooney is all in to boycott these nine exclusive hotels owned by Sultan of Brunei. He came forward to speak regarding one of their brutal laws. They include the death penalty by stoning for gay sex. Their new laws come into effect on April 3. They include the punishments of amputation for theft and death for alleged adultery.
The nine hotels include The Dorchester and 45 Park Lane in London, Coworth Park in England, The Beverly Hills Hotel and Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles, Le Meurice and Hotel Plaza Athenee in Paris and Hotel Eden in Rome.
“They’re nice hotels. The people who work there are kind and helpful. They have no part in the ownership of these properties,” Clooney wrote. “But let’s be clear, every single time we use any of these nine hotels we are putting money directly into the pockets of these men. The men who choose to stone and whip to death their own citizens for being gay or accused of adultery.”
Clooney has also participated in the LGBTQ campaign against Brunei-owned hotels. He admitted, “any boycott would have little effect on changing these laws”. But he was also sceptical if people were “really going to help pay for these human rights violations?”
