‘I’ve been accused of using a false and misleading name of which I find very offensive’

The unfortunately named Phuc Dat Bich – whose name is actually pronounced Phoo Da Bic – posted the image after the tech giant banned him several times.

The picture, and its accompanying message, has been shared more than 123,000 times.

“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,” he said.

“I’ve been accused of using a false and misleading name of which I find very offensive.”

He went on to explain that his frustration was due to what he suggested was a lack of understanding in the West for names which appear amusing to some.

“Is it because I’m Asian? Is it?” he asked in the post.

“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.

“Yours sincerely, Phuc Dat Bich”.

Since his story was shared widely online, he said he was “honoured” at the support he received.
