I hope these men are happy living in their home country, because they can never move to Saudi Arabia. They should not even visit there.
Several men from the United Arab Emirates were recently forcibly removed from the Jenadrivah Heritage & Cultural Festival in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for being too handsome. I never knew that a man could be “too handsome.” I thought that was one of those things that was impossible.
However, Saudi Arabia’s Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vices spotted them and decided that they must go for fear that the Saudi women would find them irresistible, according to Elaph
, an Arabic-language newspaper.
They were deported to Abu Dhabi. (Note to self: vacation in Abu Dhabi, not Saudi Arabia.) Richard Armitage and Dan Stevens also make the cut of “British men who should avoid Saudi Arabia.”
A few Americans should stay home, too. Tatum Channing and Tom Brady make my list. There are many, many handsome American men, but their attractiveness to me is substantially diminished whenever I learn too much about their lifestyles. Either I don’t know these particular celebrities’ reputations too well, or they are good at flying under the radar. If you know really bad things about them, please leave me in my state of blissful ignorance. Yes, I know Channing Tatum used to be an exotic dancer, but he’s now a family man who loves his wife. He gets points for that in my book.
Suggestions, readers? Who makes your list of men who should avoid Saudi Arabia? Which famous men could safely visit that country?
