The Sultan is the pride owner of the Hotel Bel-Air and Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, California.
The three-time Golden Globe winner posted his appeal just after a day the Sultan passed the enactment of the law; of killing gay people by stoning them to death.
The law was passed by the Sultan on 27th March 2019.
Clooney further notified that this situation was dealt with quite successfully about a couple of year ago when people boycotted the two L.A. based hotels.
