It's time for another celebrity boycott. But this is no trivial matter, as we turn our heads to Brunei. The tiny Asian country has come under fire, mostly due to its leader Hassanal Bolkiah. The sultan has introduced new Islamic laws, which essentially make homosexuality punishable by stoning. The news has turned heads around the world, especially because of the power and influence of Brunei. It's a small country, but the Brunei Investment Agency owns property around the world, like the Dorchester Collection of hotels. Now celebrities like George Clooney are calling for a boycott of these properties, which includes the world-famous Beverly Hills Hotel.
