LGBT and women's rights activists are not letting up on the Dorchester Collection hotels, which are owned by the Sultan of Brunei, who allows the stoning of gays and adulterers in his country.

Another protest touched down at the Beverly Hills Hotel, which is owned by Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei, who recently greenlit Sharlia law that allows the stoning of gays and women to death.

About 40 people showed up to the noisy protest on Friday, according to a report in Frontiers, including members of the Human Rights Campaign and UNITE HERE Local 11, who also oppose the hotel's anti-union policies. The gathering was partly organized by James Duke Mason, the LGBT activist and son of pop icon Belinda Carlisle. While many celebrities have joined in the protest against the Dorchester hotels, reality star Kim Kardashian said she's worried the protest will hurt the hotels' employees.

“No spin machine or reality TV personality is going to stop us,” Mason told Frontiers. Protests against the Dorchester collection happened around the world on Friday; watch the Beverly Hills Hotel rally below.
