Hotels Owned By Brunei Sultan Delete Social Media Accounts Over “Abuse” Due To Gay Death Penalty Law

The Hill reports:

A number of luxury hotels owned by the ruler of Brunei have deleted their social media accounts amid calls for a boycott over the island nation’s new law punishing homosexuality.

The accounts were removed the same day that the law, which makes gay sex and adultery punishable by death and calls for stoning, took effect.

The Dorchester Collection, which is owned by the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, and operates the five-star hotels, issued a statement on Twitter saying it has deactivated the pages “due to the personal abuse directed at our employees.”
