I am confused here: Once, three very attractive men from the UAE were deported from Saudi for being too fine and now this female presenter was given the boot for not being pretty!!!
Dress code: Budoor Ahmad, a presenter with Saudi-Arabian state-owned news station Al Ekhbariya appears wearing a tradition black abaya with a blue stripeA female Saudi TV presenter claims she was sacked on her first day in the job because she not deemed pretty enough.
The woman says she reported for work at the station office, but was told by her boss she could not appear on TV.
She is suing the company for discrimination and breach of contract.
The presenter, who has not been identified, claims she was offered a contract by an Arab satellite channel in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.
However, she was shocked to hear that her boss allegedly did not think she was beautiful enough to appear on TV when she arrived for her first day.
This, she alleges, was a breach of contract because it did not stipulate a three-month probation period with a right for immediate dismissal.
She also claims the director verbally abused her, it was reported by Gulf News, which cited an article in local daily Makkah.
A court in Riyadh was due to examine the case.
Shock: In August last year a female presenter sparked fury after broadcasting from the London studio of Al Ekhbariya without so much as a veil
One of the three Emiratis, Omar Borkan Al Gala deported from Saudi in 2013 for being too handsome!!!
