I saw this once in a website but didn't believe it, soon enough I found it floating all over other news websites but it wasn't confirmed by a "major" one, I thought about sharing it here...
There's not much to it so I'm putting it for you briefly:
Omar Borkan Al Gala, a poet, photographer and actor from Dubai UAE was visiting Riyadh for a cultural festival in the Islamic kingdom, but he and two of his colleagues were asked to leave for being "too handsome" in fear that they would corrupt the country's women.
The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vices (aka the religious police) believed women would "fall for him" & had him deported back to UAE.
It appears that he was too hot for KSA and Facebook too, later after the incident his Facebook Page was mysteriously removed, after reaching more than 790,000 followers.
I must say as a Muslim I was greatly offended by this, religious authorities in a religious country banning a human being just because the face given to him by God would be spoiling for women, blasphemous.
