In another unfortunate incident, the Facebook account of a man named Phuc Dat Bich has been repeatedly shut down due to his name. Well, if you read it together in a way, it might sound like……yeah, you got it.

Phuc Dat Bich, 23, wrote on Facebook that he finds it “highly irritating” that nobody seems to believe him when he mentions his full legal name. Here is his complete Facebook post:

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 fb shut down multiple times and forced to change my name to my “real” name, so just to put it out there. My name.

Yours sincerely,
Phuc Dat Bich

He has also shared the picture of his passport on Facebook to prove that his name is real. The picture has been shared tens of thousands of times. His name is approximately pronounced “Phoo Da Bic.”
