There. Are. No. Words.
A Vietnamese man named was having trouble staying on Facebook recently, because the site kept banning him, alleging his real name was actually an explicit joke.
Why? His name is Phuc Dat Bich.
The 23-year-old Vietnamese-Australian man finally took matters into his own hands when he posted a picture of his passport to the social network, proving that Phuc Dat Bich was his real, given birth name and not some crude teenager’s joke.
Bich told his followers of his frustration, posting the following message along with a picture of his passport (above) to prove he really is who he claims to be:
“I find it highly irritating the fact that nobody seems to believe me when I say that my full legal name is how you see it. I’ve been accused of using a false and misleading name of which I find very offensive. Is it because I’m Asian? Is it? Having my [Facebook] shut down multiple times and forced to change my name to my “real” name, so just to put it out there. My name.
Phuc Dat Bich”
In case you’re wondering, the correct pronunciation of Bich’s name is closer to “Phoo Da Bic” anyway.
It’s a shame whoever works hard to censor Facebook can’t take the time to look up traditional Vietnamese names.
Here’s hoping Bich — who works at a bank in Australia — doesn’t run into too many more problems on Facebook now that his story has been trending all afternoon! LOLz!!
