Meet the Man Who Got Deported From Saudi Arabia For Being "Too Handsome"
A man who was reportedly kicked out of Saudi Arabia for being too good looking has continued to be plagued by his handsomeness after he was also apparently kicked off Facebook.
Omar Borkan Al Gala gained notoriety after reports emerged he had been told to leave the Middle Eastern country because he was too sexy.
It now seems his allure may also be too strong for Facebook as he was apparently dumped from his community page.
He had amassed 790,000 followers on the site but the page has now been replaced with a message stating: ‘Sorry this page isn’t available.
‘The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed.’
The Telegraph reports that three men were in attendance at the annual Jenadrivah Heritage & Culture Festival in Riyadh when they were seized by the religious police and later deported because "they are too handsome." One of the men (pictured below) is Omar Borkan Al Gala, an actor, poet and fashion photographer from Dubai.
"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," Elaph an Arabic newspaper reported.
