Is This the Man Who Was Deported From Saudi Arabia For Being Too Handsome? (PHOTOS)
Irresistable men are a problem everywhere, but particularly in Saudi Arabia.
Recently in this Middle Eastern nation, local religious police reportedly moved to deport three male visitors from the United Arab Emirates that they deemed too handsome for the female populace to resist. The men were attending the Jenadrivah Heritage & Cultural Festival when they were summarily rejected.
The Arabic-language newspaper, Elaph, reported, "A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the Commission [for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vices] members feared female visitors could fall for them."
Our first thought, as we’re sure you’re already thinking, was where are the photos?
Lucky for us, someblogs have attempted to identify members of this beefcake trio. Of the men purported to be the too handsome for their own good, our favorite hottie by far is the Dubai-based, self-described "fashion photographer/actor/poet" (so many facets to his personality, swoon!) Omar Borkan Al Gala.
Omar recently posted some teasing links on his Facebook page that indicate he may in fact be one of the males judged to be too sexy for their shirts. While Omar clearly seems to be enjoying the recognition that his newfound fame has garnered, some are skeptical that he’s the real deal.
Buzzfeed questions his involvement in the deportation, pointing out that he has yet to formally acknowledge his involvement. There’s also the oddness that he has no photos on his Facebook page of the festival that he was allegedly ejected from, especially given that he’s a professional photographer.
Whether Omar is seeking fame or really one of those deemed too handsome, the one thing nobody debates? He’s pretty pretty. Check out these snaps, ladies!
