A man with a slightly-unfortunate name has had to resort to sharing a photo of his passport to prove his name really is Phuc Dat Bich, after Facebook banned his account.
Speaking out in frustration, Phuc Dat Bich told his Facebook friends that he finds it ‘highly irritating’ that nobody believes him ‘when I say that my full legal name is how you see it’.

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.

Phuc, who works at Bank of Australia, wrote: ‘I’ve been accused of using a false and misleading name, which I find very offensive.’
His passport shows that his first name is actually Phuc Dat and his surname Bich, pronounced ‘Phoo Da Bic’.
The post has since been liked more than 125,400 times.
The irritated man claims that he has had his Facebook account shut down ‘multiple times’ and was forced to change his name ‘to my “real” name, so just to put it out there. My name.’
He ends his post with ‘Is it because I’m Asian? Is it?’ and the sign off ‘Yours sincerely, Phuc Dat Bich’.
Spare a thought for the poor guy, we can only imagine how he’s feeling.
