Omar Borkan Al Gala was recently asked to leave the country of Saudi Arabia for being too handsome.
Born in the United Arab Emirates, Al Gala, a poet, actor, and photographer was visiting Saudi Arabia for the Jenadrivah Heritage & Cultural Festival, when he and two of his colleagues were asked to leave for fear they would “corrupt the country’s women”, according to the Arabic-language newspaper Elaph.
The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vices believed that Al Gala in all of his great-looking hotness was just too darn tempting to have around.
A local newspaper later explained the men had been targeted amid fears “female visitors would fall for them”, and they were swiftly deported to Abu Dhabi.
Reluctant to publicly admit that he was one of the men, Al Gala did recently add this poetic muse to his Facebook page: “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.” Love him!
