Three Emirati Dudes Deported for Being Too Good-Looking

We all have problems. Some of us can’t manage to pay our phone bill, get our boyfriend to call us back or master the art of juggling — while others must suffer the harrowing experience of being too damn good-looking.

Some men are just too handsome for their own good.

Three United Arab Emirates men were apparently deported for being too handsome. The men were attending the Jenadriyah Heritage and Cultural Festival in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, when they were noticed by a religious police officer, who kicked them out of the festival.

“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 Vice] members feared female visitors could fall for them,” says a statement translated from the Saudi news site Elaph.

Festival managers took “urgent measures” and members of the Saudi national guard escorted the three hotties out of the country.

Yes, I’m sure every woman’s reaction to seeing a handsome guy is to lose her mind, abandon her beliefs, jump on his Harley and throw caution to the wind. So far, no statements have been made by the men who were deported.
