The social media accounts of Brunei-owned luxury hotels have been deleted or made inaccessible amid an ongoing backlash over anti-LGBT laws.

Now the social media accounts of these hotels have become inaccessible following criticism online.

These nine hotels have now become inaccessible across social media, though not all the accounts have been deleted.

Eight of the hotels’ accounts have been deleted or deactivated on Twitter, with just Hotel Principle de Savoia in Italy “protected”, meaning it is still present on the website, but the tweets cannot be viewed.

The Instagram accounts of all but three of the hotels have been deleted or deactivated, with Le Meurice and Hôtel Plaza Athénée in France and Hotel Eden in Rome switched to “private” to prevent the posts being viewed.

Finally, all hotels have been made inaccessible on Facebook, with attempts to view their pages presenting an error message.
