He’s too sexy for this country: Did this man get kicked out Saudi Arabia for being ‘too handsome’?

Latest News / April 26, 2013


Meet the man who is so handsome, it may be illegal.

Dubai fashion photographer, actor and poet (and that word should be used very lightly) Omar Borkan Al Gala could be one of the three men deported from Saudi Arabia last week for the crime of being too gorgeous.

Religious police in the deeply conservative Muslim country reportedly stormed a stand manned by delegates from the United Arab Emirates at the Jenadrivah Heritage & Culture Festival. The three hotties were evicted from the festival, then deported to the UAE because they were so handsome that police “feared female visitors could fall for them,” the Arabic-language newspaper Elaph reported.


Omar has posted messages on Facebook seemingly confirming his involvement in the incident.

“This is what written in newspapers in over the world :) UAE men ordered to leave Saudi Arabia for being ‘too handsome’,” one post reads.

He then posted: “The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.”

With cringeworthy lines like this, Omar is already building quite the female fan base, with hundreds of admirers swamping his Facebook page.

One admirer wrote: “Oh my gosh… the eyes… the eyes!”

“Hi handsome… I know you from the breaking news… lol… the most handsome guy in the world,” another one gushed.

Added another: “Why you are so HOT!”

Oh my gosh, this is a joke, right?
