If you thought that there's no flip side to being impossibly handsome, think again! Apparently that chiseled face, the dreamy eyes fringed with lashes and the manly chest can lead to deportation. If you're in Saudi Arabia, that is.

Three men from United Arab Emirates were attending the Jenadrivah Heritage & Culture Festival in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. They were forcibly evicted from the festival by Saudi police officers. The grounds for this harsh move? The visitors were too handsome.

“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,” a Saudi Arabian newspaper Elaph reported.

After evicting them, the police immediately deported the trio back to Abu Dhabi, lest any Saudi women see them and find them too irresistible to not fall in love.

Saudi Arabia is extremely conservative and offers little liberty to its women citizens. The female population of the country is not permitted to talk to any men to whom they are not related.

asaintown.net recently  posted some pictures of Omar Borkan Al Gala, saying that he was one of the three irresistibly handsome men who were deported.

Take a look here and tell us in the comments section if you think he truly  is handsome enough to corrupt Saudi Arabian women and make them break their country's laws. We suspect that what they'd really like to know, if they were allowed to talk to him, is was what eyelash curler he uses and from where he buys that nude shade lipstick. And, in an age of Facebook profile photos being as important as they are, what Photoshop tools had he used to make him look so... ummmm.. flawless.
