Stars boycott famous Beverly Hills Hotel over its links to Sharia law

(CNN) – The Beverly Hills Hotel – nicknamed "The Pink Palace" – is where stars have flocked since Beverly Hills was nothing but lima bean fields.

Elizabeth Taylor honeymooned in the bungalows out back six times. Over the last hundred years, everyone from Charlie Chaplin to Brad Pitt could be spotted at the hotel.
