All Or Nothing: DEADLINE's Cynical Beverly Hills Hotel Boycott Take-Down Targets The Wrong Enemy Comments (0)

Sultan-of-bruneiThe Sultan of Brunei is far right...literally and figuratively.

Daphne Richards, once a full-time manager at Chik-fil-A, was demoted and took a pay cut after a leave for a double mastectomy. The company defended its decision by saying they actually punished her for “poor performance and out of concern she wouldn't be able to handle the work load.”

Maybe not necessarily in that order, huh?

So if you didn't already hate patronizing Chik-fil-A for its corporate anti-gay stance or its ultra-conservative deference to the Bible, you might be forgiven if you decided not to eat there after hearing about this unfair action.

But you wouldn't be forgiven by Deadline. According to the popular movie-biz site, you'd just be a wide-eyed optimist at best or a hypocritical “shillbilly” at worst if you boycotted Chik-fil-A but still ate at a restaurant that has also potentially or demonstrably done something with which you disagree: Deadline has taken the stance that boycotting the Beverly Hills Hotel due to its ownership by the Sultan of Brunei—who has announced the death penalty for homosexuality in his country beginning in 2016—is logically indefensible, and rather than stopping there, an article on the site goes on to personally attack some of the boycott's most high-profile proponents as hypocrites.

In the piece by David L. Robb, entitled “Beverly Shillbillies: Hollywood Hypocrites Shun Hotels While Hawking Wares To Rights Abusers,” a laundry list of instances is provided to show how some of the famous faces involved in the boycott of the hotel are happily doing business with other, similarly despicable entities:

Closet Queen Gets Ripped Off Comments (0)

Theresa-RoemerA well-prepped thief, likely one who follows the society papers, has pulled a million-dollar heist by burglarizing a Houston socialite who had recently shown off the contents of her three-story closet on TV.

Theresa Roemer told Good Morning America that her closet holds two million dollars worth of Birkins and other modern-day booty. She now says:

“No one deserves this. I don't care if you're wealthy. I don't care if you're poor. Your personal belongings are your personal belongings.”

Well, of course, though there's a big gap in the pain of being a poor person with no insurance losing your one and only TV and being a socialite losing a cool million in haute couture.
