For those who are a bit behind on this news, let us quickly catch you up to speed…

Last month, the tiny East Asian nation of Brunei became the first country in the region to adopt Sharia law. The decision to do so was made by Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, who is the leader of the oil-rich kingdom.

What is Sharia law, you ask?

Basically it’s just the worst. It includes punishments of flogging, dismemberment, and stoning for “crimes” such as cheating on your spouse, having an abortion, drinking alcohol or just being gay! In fact, those who partake in sodomy are to be put to death!

Pretty awful, right?

Well, the Sultan of Brunei is a rich dude and in order to stay rich, he's made some investments throughout his life, including purchasing two luxury hotels in Southern California - The Hotel Bel Air and the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Both have been frequented by the rich and famous for years. But with these anti-gay laws effecting the thousands of citizens living in Brunei, several Hollywood stars have stopped hanging out at the Sultan’s American businesses!

Enter Kim Kardashian who is a BIG fan of the Beverly Hills Hotel. Yesterday, she asked the Illuminati stars of El Lay to reconsider their boycott because by not going to the BHH, they’re only hurting the hotel’s hard-working staff!

Kimmy penned a lengthy letter on her blog, pleading for people to end their protests, adding that she especially likes the Beverly Hills Hotel because they don’t allow paparazzi on the property, which means Kim can eat, sleep or relax in peace without getting her photo taken every 5 seconds!

Hmm…

This is a tough call!

Read Miz Kardashian’s open letter to Hollywood’s elite and VOTE on whether or not this boycott should end…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

"My best friend Allison and I wanted to take our babies out to lunch a few days ago after our baby class but there were so many paparazzi swarming us, it would have really scared them. Instead we had to feed them at her place and put them down for a nap. We were planning on taking them to the Beverly Hills Hotel, which is where we always go because they respect not having any paparazzi drive onto their property, but I reminded Allison that my bridal shower was moved from that hotel due to the actions of the Sultan of Brunei. Allison shared with me her view on the situation and we 100% agree that the actions and law enforcements of the Sultan are completely against everything we believe in.

However, I started to realize that maybe boycotting the hotel isn’t the best solution either. For a sultan that has 20 billion dollars, this loss of business doesn’t even make a dent in his fortunes. But the hotel staff are being negatively affected every day with the boycott that has gone on for weeks now… We shouldn’t punish the amazing hard-working people who have been so good to us for years! When I was a little girl, I would ride my bike to the Beverly Hills Hotel on the weekends to eat downstairs in the coffee shop with my dad, and some of the same people still work there! It’s sad to see them suffering from this protest.

There must be other ways to express our views without punishing the workers, some who I know personally have families at home and depend on the city’s business and tips to survive. When I was pregnant, the hotel was my safe haven. There’s one waitress that works downstairs who was also pregnant at the same time as me and due just a few weeks apart. We would always share our pregnancy stories with each other. I know for a fact she has a new baby at home that she has to feed, so this boycott is affecting her tremendously. The hotel is a piece of LA’s history as well as many of our own personal memories.

I support Rose McGowan and Russell Crowe’s takes on this matter. The unjust treatmentand violation of rights of the LGBT community around the world is never justified and I will continue to proudly support the LGBT community in every way imaginable. I do believe though that instead of this boycott, there has to be another solution. I’m glad to hear that industry executives like Jeffrey Katzenberg and Casey Wasserman are reaching out to leaders of the hotel chain to discuss a way to potentially end the protest. I hope we can come together and stand up for our beliefs while still making sure good people aren’t wrongfully hurt in the process. Boycotting the hotel won’t affect the sultan, just our dear friends who work there. For every warm smile when they greet us and for all the dedication they put in to make our experiences more enjoyable, I hope we can return the same love and compassion to make sure they’re not forgotten during this protest. Xo

With love, Kim”

    Stick to porm and showing your boobs in vest Kim - No one care what you have to say

    I'm going to guess that Kim is using this issue to try and change her image. Her publicity team probably came up with the idea and wrote the spiel hoping it would make Kim seem more intelligent and caring. Meanwhile, Kim was getting her hair and makeup done for yet another 'candid' selfie.

    Perez you dumb f'. Do you even KNOW what the Sharia is? First, here's a little lesson: In an over simplified nutshell, it is Islamic jurisprudence based on Quaranic verses and examples set by their prophet Muhammad. Not "just just the worst".

    Second, the adoption of Sharia law affects far more people than just the gay community and for you and other moronic celebrities to only express outrage at how the gay community in Brunei will be further persecuted is shockingly ignorant!! Yeah, just gloss over the fact that women can be stoned to death for not obeying their spouse, but be outraged that sodomy (which you are assuming is exclusively performed by two men) is a crime punishable by death.

    Stick to gossip mongering and stop making un-researched ignorance.

    Never thought I would say that but she's right, there is no need to punish the employees.. Think bigger, reach the political leaders

    Re: Kika – It's not about the employees or whether or not boycotting the hotel will change the sultan's behavior, it's about us. What we do. I don't care how good the food is in a restaurant, I'm not going there if it's run by the KKK. Part of MY money, that I would be paying for the meal would end up in the klans pockets & I won't give them a penny.

    Re: Seriously?! – Perez puts gay issues over women's issues every time. I have no problem with him supporting a cause, but it seems hypocritical that he campaigns for gay equality, yet is misogynistic at the same time.

    Funny that Kim is pretending she wrote any of that. I doubt she knows how to put a sentence together. And it's hilarious that she says that her and her friend HAD to eat at home with their babies for privacy, boohoo. Considering you are where you are because you were willing to sell every single part of yourself, stop pretending like you don't call the paparazzi to each of your new locations to photograph you in your newest horrific outfit.

    People need to stand up for what they believe in. And Kim pretending she gives to s**ts about the employees at the hotel is laughable. Considering she could help in so many ways, but instead sells free crap she got from designers on ebay and then only gives charity a small percentage of the earnings. Yeah, stop pretending it's lame.

    Re: karen – You are so right. Let's see - let's not boycott anything. Hmmm, all those stations who talk against Christianity (and you're a Christian)- let's not boycott. Think of the people they employ. All those people who talk about how bad the Repubs are - let's not boycott because of the people they employ. And vice versa. It's interesting that those who say "think about the employees" are probably the first to boycott anything that goes against their beliefs. Hypocrites.

    This from a woman who calls the paparazzi every time she steps out of the door. This is rich.

    What a great leader. Gays should be put to death. It stops the spread of AIDS. We should have similar measures in America.

  11. AlyGee says – reply to this

    Here's the plan. Take some of the ridiculous amount of money you guys have and buy either the hotel or build a new one and then offer that staff jobs at yours for slightly better pay!! It may not hurt the sultan however any money he makes can be being used to fuel his ways. Either way it's contribution. So actually fix the problem. Two birds one stone cold hotel.



  12. 12

    And who cares what this fat-ass, gypsy, talent-less moron thinks???? Shut the "F" up and lay on your back - cause that's the only thing you are good at!

    The bottom line is that she wants to be able to go back to the Hotel without looking like the selfish whore she is. Kim is doing this for herself. She doesn't give one shit about the hotel workers. She is willing to support anything as long as it's comfortable for her. Even sharia law.

    Seriously touched by Kim and her little rich friend ! please keep these servants employed aka I need some place to hide. What about that young new mom who is just like Kim … pregnant at the same time you know !! Kim is just so worried for her!!!

    Hey Kim, I have an idea how about you don't buy clothes for the next 6 months can't even imagine what you spend… but I bet if you gave that money to the new mom she would have bridge money between jobs she would be able to leave , find a job with a better employer . But why would Kim do that…. its not in her best interest, which is her only concern… silly me !

    Re: Mad Dog – Which is exactly why ONLY homosexuals have AIDS right? Jeez you sound ignorant.



  16. 16

    And the most laughable part of her statement is that she wanted to take her baby with her to lunch.

  17. Allcan says – reply to this

    Re: AlyGee – that's exactly what i thought!



  18. 18

    Kudos to whoever wrote the statement. And I agree, the Beverly Hills Hotel is *exactly* where one-year-olds like best to eat, rather than having to eat in someone's home. But accepting Kim as a spokesperson for any cause is a stretch, though I suppose she is fond of the people who work there. You're night quite there yet, sweetie…



  19. 19

    she's an imbecile and if she has an opinion either HER PIMP, HER PSYCHO HUBBY gave it to her or SHE'S BEING PAID TO SAY IT. the boycott wouldn't affect the employess if the owners divest. SHE'S DUMB AS A ROCK.

    Actually for once she speaks some sense…bt I still find her annoying

    The investor isn't involved in the hotels, they are run by some British Company. To truly affect change of laws in other nations maybe go to Washington? Seems weird to boycott the hotels. His wealth is from oil, certainly not hotels. They are "trophies"

  22. @v@ says – reply to this


    22

    People can and are free to speak with their wallets, just as employees are free to seek employment at other hotels. If it ends up being sold due to poor numbers, it could do better numbers again if patrons agree with the values.

    Leave it to Kim to defend the dollar over human treatment once again.. the sultan hates gays and parties but owns two hotels in party town LA where there are plenty of gay people, aka human beings…. these people dont care about anything but the bottom dollar and not giving it to them is the only way to stop them.

    Kim can eat at home with her baby, now that's privacy.

    this is like the village idiot saying MENSA is just a "stupid club." Porn star fame whores / whores who give birth to bastard children should just shhhhhh.

    Ironically, 1000's of arabic and african gays also support sharia in the middle east and islamic africa. WHile I dont believe for ONE MINUTE she gives ten cents about the "hard working people" at the hotel (if she cared so much, she would have married a door boy and given him the life. MIllions of hotel workers around the world and she didnt marry ONE of them. But at least she "cares"). Sorry. I didnt mean to call them hardworking. We all know who becomes maids. The girls from school who smoked pot at Gwar concerts instead of studying. They worked hard at slacking off and now suffer the indignity of menial labor as a result. Anyhooooo. She's right. Society is boycotting the wrong thing. They should be boycotting religion. If we in america actually followed the bible verbatim… our society would be IDENTICAL to a sharia society (by a different name, of course).
    Religion is the problem. Not hotels.
