Three men deemed too sexy for Saudi Arabia were deported by religious authorities last week because they worried women would be too attracted to their irresistible looks.
Three delegates from the United Arab Emirates were attending the Jenadrivah Heritage and Culture Festival in Riyahd, Saudi Arabia, last week when the mutaween, Saudi Arabia's religious police, hauled the men away.

"A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the Commission members feared female visitors could fall for them," Elaph, an Arabic language newspaper, reported.
Saudi Arabia is known for being an extremely conservative Sunni Muslim country, which prohibits women from interacting with men who aren't their relatives. Authorities reportedly feared the delegates' looks would distract women attending the festival.
After being booted from the event, the men were subsequently deported back to the UAE
, according to the New York Post.
Omar Borkan Al Gala, a poet, actor, and photographer, is rumored to be one of the men who was deported
, according to the Telegraph.
Although it has not yet been confirmed that he was one of the men, Al Gala posted a link to a news report about the incident on his Facebook page, along with statements like, "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."
And it seems Al Gala has no shortage of female fans.
"Would enjoy seeing, or better, hearing your poetry. Preferably in person," wrote one his many Facebook fans.
"They can deport you right to California!" wrote another.
