Saudi Arabian Man Claims He Was Deported For Being Too Handsome

Entertainment | By Cole Damon | October 24, 2017

Thanks to his Instagram account, Omar Borkan Al Gala has successfully launched himself into the spotlight, earning the admiration of hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world. Unfortunately however, it has also got him under hot water as well, he was reportedly deported from Saudi Arabia because of being 'too handsome'. Is this a real possibility? Even if these are just rumors, they only serve to attest to his 'handsomeness'.

Unfortunately for the ladies, he's already taken

Omar has hooked up with a beautiful young woman, much to the chagrin of ladies world wide. Why he is not only married, but a child is also on the way. They'll call him, "the most handsome baby in the world.''

His massive Instagram account

If you're a hot looking person with a body to die for, then Instagram is for you. All you need is a couple of clicks from a decent camera, a few raunchy poses and you are bound to break the internet over your looks.

His wife is wealthy woman

Omar Borkan's looks attracted attention from one of the wealthiest women in the United Arab Emirates. This means that not only Omar, but also his child will be basking in the glory of a truck full of money.

So why did he become so famous

I mean, clearly Omar is not the only handsome man in the world. So exactly why did he instantly jump to stardom overnight? There are rumors circulating around the internet that he was deemed too 'handsome' for Saudi Arabia.

Is there such a thing as 'too handsome'?

Apparently the authorities in Saudi Arabia believed he might corrupt impressionable young women in the Kingdom and was deported. Of course this mind boggling news will launch just about anyone to the spot light. So how true are these rumors? Let's investigate.

The truth to these claims

The commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vices in Saudi had three men deported back to Dubai in case women would fall in love with them. Arabic newspaper Elaph confirmed this news three Emirati men were indeed deported for being too handsome.

But was Omar one of them

Al Gala has neither confirmed nor denied that he was from among the three men. But instead posted a link to the news report on Facebook page, it didn't help that he wrote weird statements such as, "The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes..."

It is probable that he was taking advantage of the absurdity of the news

While it is true that the event did indeed take place, it is possible that Omar was not among the men deported. It is possible however that he is taking advantage of the speculation to jump to instant stardom.

That is exactly what happened

And thus started the adventurous journey of young Omar to instant fame overnight. Everyone wanted to see the face of the man who made the religious police in Saudi Arabia shaking in their boots. It helps that he is indeed handsome to back up these rumors.

UAE's own statements

The UAE however released a slightly more confusing account of the incident. They claim that the religious police in Riyadh were concerned over the unscheduled presence of a female artist at the festival. "Her visit was a coincidence and was not included in the program."

The handsome man receives expensive gifts

A secret admirer - a woman - actually spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on a Mercedes G55 for Omar's birthday. She (or a he?) never exactly disclosed her name, so Omar is in the dark about his admirer.

A strong reaction from everyone

Omar's acting career has also gained a lot of traction as the young star has been cast in a short film alongside the likes of Navid Negahban. Hey, as long as he's got the looks and can act on camera, we have no problems with that.

The power of fame

He was also reported working on a calendar for a woman's rights group in Canada. There was a time when the 25 year old would complain about his 'good looks', but we're glad he's no longer hampered by them.

The truth about what happened that fateful day

Some of the girls recognized Omar from some of the modeling gigs he had done and gathered around for selfies and autographs. Soon enough, the crowd grew and the religious police booted the man out of the country.

Limited interaction between men and women

Saudi Arabia has a strict policy that unrelated men and women are to keep a respectable distance at all times. When they saw Omar and the girls breaking that barrier, they deported him. But in the long run, it turned out to be good for the young lad didn't it?
