Saudi Arabia deports 3 men for being 'too sexy'
New York, Apr. 18 (ANI): Three men were deported out of Saudi Arabia as religious authorities deemed them "too handsome" amid worries that women would get attracted towards them.
According to Arabic language newspaper Elaph, sitting in the stands as delegates from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) at the Jenadrivah Heritage and Cultural Festival in Riyadh on Sunday, nothing seemed to be wrong with the men in question but that didn't stop the mutaween, Saudi Arabia's religious police, from charging in and hauling the men away.
A festival official said that the men from UAE were taken out on the grounds that they were too handsome and the Commission members feared that female visitors could fall for them, the New York Post reported.
After being dragged out of the event by the Saudi authorities, they were subsequently deported back to the UAE. (ANI)
