A new round of attention is being drawn to the #BoycottBermuda hashtag across social media after Governor John Rankin signed the Domestic Partnership Act. Critics called it a step backwards as Bermuda became the first country to repeal same-sex marriage after a court last year ruled that gay couples had the right to marriage in Bermuda. The #BoycottBermuda hashtag first surfaced at the end of last year when Parliament passed the Domestic Partnership Act. At that time, former US presidential candidate Howard Dean urged people to spend their vacation money elsewhere, and on social media, a few people said they were cancelling their reservations.
