First, celebrities criticize stuff all the time (https://www.thewrap.com/hollywood-activism-helen-gahagan-douglas-harvey-telethon/), but if you're asking why Hollywood doesn't condemn everything there is possible to condemn, well, that's ridiculous because no one does that. There's not enough time in the day to tackle every single evil in the world.

    What's happening in Brunei is horrible...but there are many other targets...even much bigger targets they should be calling out. It smacks of virtue signaling since this is a relatively small country.
    Any ideas why?


Yeah, this JUST happened is why. Also, virtue signaling is a far more complicated phenomenon than your condescension merits:
