Kim Kardashian's surprise bridal shower was originally planned for the Beverly Hills Hotel but that's not where it took place.

The hosts of the shower, mom Kris Jenner and sisters Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashion, decided to change venues because the owner of the Beverly Hills Hotel, Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah, has implemented a law in his country that includes death by stoning of gay people.

The cancelation is the latest in a string of celebrity protests against the hotel and other properties owned by the sultan's Dorchester Collection.

"I won't be visiting the Hotel Bel-Air or the Beverly Hills Hotel until this is resolved," Ellen DeGeneres tweeted.

The sultan announced last month that enforcement of the law would begin on May 1. Other punishments include jail time for people who miss Friday prayer and cutting off the limbs of convicted thieves.
