Brunei is introducing strict new Islamic laws that make anal sex and adultery offences punishable by stoning to death.
The new measures, that come into force on Wednesday, have caused Brunei's gay community to express shock and fear at the "medieval punishments".
Famous TV hostess called for a boycott to all the hotels the sultan of Brunei owns all over the world.
The sultan of the small South-East Asian nation on Wednesday called for "stronger" Islamic teachings.
"I want to see Islamic teachings in this country grow stronger," Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah said in a public address.
