A good-looking man, who was deported from Saudi Arabia on fears that he would cause women to sin with him, received a brand new Mercedes from a secret admirer, the man said in a statement.
Omar Borkan al-Gala, 23, was expelled from Saudi Arabia because he was deemed to be too handsome by festival organizers who were worried that women will find him hard to resist.
But rather than dwell on his plight of being too beautiful, the male model has now decided to use his popularity to his advantage.
“I have received a Mercedes G55 for my birthday from a woman whom I do not know,” he said.
Besides getting gifts, Omar also said that his acting career was going well after being cast in a short movie alongside Navid Negahban.
“The feedback I have received is huge,” he added.
The poet, sometimes also has to deal with his busy social networking life, after receiving nearly one million facebook likes on his page.
Since making headlines around the world, the 23-year-old has relocated to Canada, where, among other projects, is working for a women’s rights group.
“It’s wonderful to see that his super handsome looks is not causing problems for him anymore,” said Bessie Lawson, 25, who is a women’s rights activist in Toronto.
