Saudi Arabia deports actor for being too beautiful. Authorities claim it was their wimmin folk who were in danger of swooning but looking at the guy, I don’t think so.
There’s no doubt that Omar Borkan Al Gala is a handsome man. But, is he illegally attractive?
The poet and actor is believed to be one of three men who were kicked out of a cultural festival in Saudi Arabia after he was considered “too handsome” for the women present, who may have fallen for him.
Arabic newspaper Elaph reported earlier this week that three men were forcibly removed from the grounds by religious police, who deemed their collective good looks as “too handsome” for the event. “A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the Commission members feared female visitors could fall for them,” the newspaper said.
Steps were then taken to return the men to Abu Dhabi.
