Contributing his own rebellious, if unorthodox ideas to the Brunei Boycott, gay comic Andy Cohen has suggested another way to resist the nation’s new homophobic laws: by filming porno at hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei.
The controversy began when Brunei announced a new law that would make homosexual behavior punishable by death. Actors Geroge Clooney and Ellen DeGeneres announced a boycott of hotels owned by the Sultan of the nation, which include several posh spots in Los Angeles and New York.

Now Andy Cohen has his own ideas about how to get the Sultan’s attention. Cohen told The Washington Blade: “I said on my show that I think the gay porn companies should start making gay porn at those hotels and making sure that you can tell where it’s being made. I think that would really piss the Sultan of Brunei off. I was kind of only half joking. But of course, I stand by that boycott. But you know the workers could go on strike too, which was Lisa Vanderpump’s idea and I think she’s right. It’s gotta hit them from all sides.”
Bowing to international pressure, the Sultan of Brunei said that the nation would not enforce the death penalty law. Still, international observers and activists remain concerned. Homosexuality remains criminal in the nation, and while the Sultan appears to have his own connection to the queer community, activists fear violence against LGBTQ citizens.
There is one mistake in this article. Cohen is referred to as a “comic”. How could he be a comic if he has never been funny. I would suggest “obnoxious television personality who thinks he is funny”.
You forgot talentless sycophant
YAS (unfortunately there is no way to include a thumbs-up icon . . .)
And yet, there he is in the public eye, appearing on television, on radio, and internet podcasts. And here you are, just another anonymous bitchy queen making snippy comments on Queerty
@ juanjo and you the c*ntiest c*nt that ever c*nted on Queerty.
Here’s a real idea: Divestment.
Get major companies, indexed mutual funds, and wealthy individuals to divest from any and all of the Sultan of Brunei’s financial interests until this barbaric, discriminatory law is repealed.
But then that might actually mean losing significant amounts of money for some people. Principles and Activism are supposed to be as cheap and easy as sharing a Facebook meme, right?
And then we’d have to start looking at our other relationships, like with the Saudis, the UAE, and more besides.
This Cohen person you refer to; some sort of male Kardashian i assume?
Not really: no sex tape; and actually has a career skills as a TV Exec and host (although some don’t like his hosting style nor sense of humor, but there is not way to account for taste).
So Andy Cohen’s idea is to simultaneously put more money in the Sultan’s pocket while taunting him in a way that could make him even more determined to go after gay people in his country?
Andy Cohen: NOT a deep thinker. Please do not listen to this guy.
Unfortunately, Mr. Cohen’s idea would only backfire and make the sultan hate us more. It would reinforce the stereotype that we are nothing but sex crazed horn dogs who will fuk anyone and anything anywhere.
