Brunei’s harsh new laws targeting LGBT people have shocked the world and prompted global condemnation. High-profile celebrities from George Clooney to Ellen DeGeneres have called for a public boycott to hotels owned by the country. “Are we really going to help fund the murder of innocent citizens?” Clooney wrote in a Deadline Hollywood column. “I’ve learned over years of dealing with murderous regimes that you can’t shame them.
