The Beverly Hills Hotel has a rich Hollywood history, but that hasnt stopped comedians Jay Leno and Ellen DeGeneres, among others, from protesting and speaking out against its owners.
Leno joined protesters across the street from the hotel Monday to decry the fact that the hotel is owned by the oil-rich government of Brunei.
The Southeast Asian nation has been in the headlines of late over the phasing in of new Islamic laws that will enact harsh punishments for homosexuality, abortions and adultery.
Other celebrities like Sharon Osbourne and Richard Branson have also taken to social media to speak out against Bruneis harsh criminal laws. On April 22, DeGeneres tweeted, I wont be visiting the Hotel Bel-Air or the Beverly Hills Hotel until this is resolved (Brunei also owns Hotel Bel-Air).

Jay Leno's comments in particular, mentioning that the idiocy surrounding the Clippers last week pales in relationship to the stoning of women in adultery shows there is still some sanity.
I hear Premier League fans whine when new Asian owners change team colors; what did people think would happen when the West was auctioned off to the highest bidder? Good to see it get some visibility...
Nice to see the liberals “train their guns” outward for a change.
Where were these good people when gay sharia was being cracked down on Eich a month ago ? Any signs about Islamists capturing 300 Nigerian Christian girls? It must be safe to criticize Brunei.
I just don’t think we should let foreigners own American real estate
Not sure if you’ve been under a rock for the last 10+ years, but the Saudis and the Chinese are buying up US land quicker than God made it.
Doesn’t the Sultan of Brunei fly in American movie stars and performers for his “entertainment?”
Why not? You get their money PLUS you can take away their property anytime you like. It’s not like they can remove it from the US.
Gee, when conservatives point out the evils of Sharia law, they are called racist and Islamaphobic. The Hollywood elite are only outraged because of Islamic attitudes toward gays.
BFD. They’re protesting sharia’s muslim laws that will punish homosexuality, abortions and adultery. How about the brutal suppression of Christians and Jews who have the misfortune of living in muslim hellholes?
well you have a point
That is only because the Islamic attitude towards homosexuals [I don't use the g word]includes them.
Better call these guys then ...
Good luck,you should seek out the stories about the Chinese buying up swaths of Real Estate in this country and building Chinese cities,there was one recently ,thousands of acres in Dutchess county New York,they will be building manufacturing,housing,educational buildings and teaching CHINESE CULTURE.
Down south a town in Alabama has give land for free for the Chinese to build a plant for jobs.
It’s all going on under the radar,it’s what happens when you are bankrupt
Islam is evil
homosexuality is an abomination to God...
This is one area the Muslims are right about,when they say the west is decadent can you disagree,sounds like issues conservatives have been complaining about,homos and the rest
Why haven’t they complained about Muslim treatment of women?
It’s a start.
But their butt buddies in Iran and the Palestinian Territories believe EXACTLY the same thing.
