Sure, you're sexy but are you so sexy you got deported from Saudi Arabia? Probably not but Dubai-based actor, poet and photographer Omar Borkan Al Gala -- apparently -- is and did.
When the story broke last week of the three men who were deported for being too handsome, it's was an odd one off story. During a festival in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia's capital), the country's Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vices had taken it upon themselves to protect the virtue of the female visitors by removing these sexy men. According to a report in Arabic language newspaper Elaph:
'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.'
Yesterday, Jezebel broke the name and photos of Mr. Al Gala and it all started to make a lot more sense. With that skin, those eyes and that devilish smirk, he'd have no problem disturbing the "virtues" of anyone he wanted. (Call me Omar!)
It's incredibly dumb for Al Gala to have been removed from the festival but at least we good to look at him dreamily.
