Ellen DeGeneres Reacts To Brunei’s New Law And The Internet Is Going Crazy

About a week ago, Brunei announced that adultery and gay sex in Brunei will be subject to death by stoning from April 3, under a strict Sharia law that has been on hold for four years despite heavy criticism.

Homosexuality is already illegal in Brunei but it will now become a capital offence. The law only applies to Muslims.

Human rights groups have reacted in horror and when news broke out, stating that it’s outdated and inhumane.

Last night, Ellen de Generes called upon the boycott of nine hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei after the country puts into effect its new law on stoning gay people to death.

She posted the message on all her social media platforms saying, “Tomorrow, the country of Brunei will start stoning gay people to death. We need to do something now. Please boycott these hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei. Raise your voices now. Spread the word. Rise up.”

Reactions to her post are divided; some taking her side while others are upset at her decision to take her stand.

Here are  what some young people think of it:

“While I don’t think it’s right to have such a harsh punishment on a matter such as homosexuality, Brunei is a sovereign country and it’s up to them to create the laws they have. There are other atrocities in the world that people aren’t taking notice of or boycotting and yet here we are. It’s a little overreactive.” — Lisa, 28, Reader
