THR's Women in Entertainment Breakfast Pulled from Beverly Hills Hotel
The Hollywood Reporter will not be holding its annual Women in Entertainment breakfast at the Beverly Hills Hotel for the first time in 20 years.
The annual breakfast will not take place at the hotel as a result of the hotel’s connection to the Sultan of Brunei, who has instituted anti-gay laws.
The sultan has stirred up much controversy after putting into effect a severe new penal code based on Sharia law that demands death by stoning for homosexuals and adulterers.
In case you didn’t know, the annual Oscars Night Before Party has also decided not to hold its’ party at the hotel because of the Brunei anti-gay laws.
