Losing Huge Events

… In Wake Of Boycott

4/7/2019 12:50 AM PDT


George Clooney‘s call for a boycott of hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei is gaining traction … because the Beverly Hills Hotel just lost 2 big gigs as a result of the protest.

The Special Needs Network and The John Wayne Cancer Institute are both pulling out of previously scheduled galas at the Beverly Hills Hotel … and it’s all because the hotel owner supports killing gay people by stoning. 

SNN’s signature spring event — the 11th Annual “a pink pump affair // a Celebration of Women” — was scheduled for May 19 at the swanky hotel … but they’re moving the fundraiser to the Beverly Hilton. Tons of celebs and politicians attend every year.

Meanwhile, the JWCI is moving its 34th Annual Odyssey Ball — scheduled for May 4 — to the Montage Beverly Hills.

These are huge blows for the hotel, and big wins for Clooney’s boycott, which covers the 9 hotels owned by Brunei’s autocratic ruler, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah. The Asian nation recently implemented capital punishment on proven gay citizens.

Lance Bass told us he strongly supports the boycott too … and now there are 2 tangible results from the protests.
