Pinault Supports George Clooney Who Called for Boycott of Sultan of Brunei’s Hotels

François-Henri Pinault, chairman and chief executive officer of Kering, tweeted his support of George Clooney’s call for a boycott of the Sultan of Brunei’s hotels over cruel anti-gay laws.
“I stand in solidarity with George Clooney against the enforcing of discriminatory, backward and inhuman laws in Brunei,” Pinault tweeted Monday on Kering’s Twitter.
Last week, Clooney called for a boycott of nine hotels because of their connection to Brunei, where homosexual acts will be punishable by death, beginning April 3. That’s the date when the nation of Brunei will start stoning and whipping to death any of its citizens that are proved to be gay.
In a guest article on Deadline Hollywood March 28, Clooney called for the public to join him immediately in boycotting nine hotels, three in the U.K., two in the U.S., two in France and two in Italy that are owned by the Brunei Investment Agency. They are the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Bel-Air in Los Angeles, the Dorchester in London, 45 Park Lane in London, Coworth Park in the U.K., Le Meurice in Paris, Hotel Plaza Athénée in Paris, Hotel Eden in Rome and hotel Principe di Savoia in Milan.
Clooney wrote, “The people who work there are kind

Faced With Calls for a Boycott, H&M Withdraws Lawsuit and Pledges Respect for Artists

H&M DODGES BOYCOTT: Less than 24 hours after a curator-collector-consultant called for an artists-led boycott of H&M, the fast-fashion chain has withdrawn the legal filing that fired up the controversy.
Last week, H&M filed a lawsuit in New York federal court claiming that copyright law did not apply in regards to its recent advertising campaign featuring graffiti done by artist Jason Williams, known as Revok. After seeing H&M’s New Routine imagery, which featured his artwork in the background, Williams had sent a cease and desist letter alleging that his art had been used without his permission or knowledge.
On March 14, Roger Gastman, a curator, collector and brand consultant, rallied fellow artists to boycott H&M. In an Instagram post, the Los Angeles creative described H&M’s legal action as “full-out assault on artists’ rights and we must raise our voices. This could render millions of murals and important pieces of artwork worldwide completely unprotected and available for corporate use, without any payment or permission needed whatsoever,” he posted. “We must not allow this company to use our artwork and appropriate our culture to sell their products for their own financial gains, while at the same time allow them to devalue and delegitimize our
