A Facebook post by a man named Phuc Dat Bich (pronounced "Phoo Da Bic") has gone viral. The Australian of Vietnamese descent says his account has been shutdown several times by the social media site. The issue appears to be centered on his name.
According to Bich, 23, Facebook accuses him of having a "false and misleading" name.
Bich even posted a photo of his passport that showed his full name.
Earlier this year, Bich wrote:
"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."
The post went viral Friday after a newspaper in Australia got wind of the issue.
Bich appeared to be back on Facebook after he re-posted a link to the article.

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.
^ Does Phuc Dat Bich get STI's from fuckin bitches in his STI?

Facebook has a 'real name' policy, but they don't enforce it unless the account gets reported. It seems he keeps getting reported, and having to verify again and again. It's odd that FB can't just flag his account as verified, and ignore the reports that his account is fake.
On a side note, if you see spammers/scammer on Facebook, you can report they're account as fake, and FB will remove it. That's what I do to people that try to spam my page.
I was riding the subway in New York when this jacked up African-American stepped in (kinda looked like Murdoc's avatar).
I was talking to my girlfriend in mandarin at the time and I said "Ge Wo Ne Ge Bi" (Which means "Give me that pen") ... well anyway he turned around to look at me. I thought I was gonna die.
