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.

OsbourneThe Osbournes do Dubai

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:

Obama-Bush“Would you like my autograph, W?”

So President Obama turns out to be the best economic president in modern times, but don't tell that to Republicans, and certainly don't try to prove it using numbers—facts have a liberal bias.

Sexy-copLooks like fare trade

Here is a great way to beat the NYC subway fare system that manages to leave you with useless amounts of money—less than the required $2.50 to ride—on your card all the time.

And here, above, is a picture of a hot cop on the subway.

Carry on.

Ben-Rimalower

Ben Rimalower's Patti Issues was a delight, but his new one, Bad With Money (The Duplex, 61 Christopher St., NYC, September 4—November 6) sounds like it might hit too close to home for me!

From a press release:

Bad With Money delves into even deeper personal territory with the story of his struggle with debt—a journey that takes him through drug addiction, prostitution, fraud and multiple betrayals.

“In this gripping play-by-play of some of his biggest mistakes and their consequences, Rimalower offers a no-holds-barred self-portrait as an addict, and casts light on one of the last societal taboos.

Rimalower says:

“People tend to be familiar now with alcohol and drug addiction—and I've got those, too. But spending money I don't have is really my drug of choice. And considering how many people suffer from the same problem, it's staggering how seldom it's discussed.”

I'll have to see this, even if it makes me squirm. I am an inveterate spendthrift, the olden-days term for someone who is not only bad with money, they're the worst. I can list dozens of things I did to lose what was a substantial wad of cash I once had, and the timing couldn't be better—as we prepare to sell our place and part ways, I'm looking for a job and sifting through some pretty poor (and at least a few smart!) investments I made along the way.

I'll see you at the show. Drinks can be on you, dear readers.
