Man named Phuc Dat Bich blames Facebook for shutting his FB account down

This poor guy had his Facebook account shut down because the company thinks he is giving a false and misleading name.

-wondering how much difficulty this guy faces in renewing his driver's licence, passport, or other government issued identification.

Didn't his parents consider that his name would grab attention in a bad way when they were thinking of a name for their son after birth?



Man named Phuc Dat Bich blasts Facebook for shut down - Fox 5 NY | WNYW


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.

Works at National Australia Bank 25,665 followers January 27

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

"Is it because I'm Asian?"

No it's because your name sounds funny in English. It doesn't matter if you're asian or whatever else.

you do know that in vietnamese, the name sounds just as regular as john smith or brad anderson.

if you heard how it sounds in viet it doesn't sound like fuck that bitch at all.
Vietnamese language has many accents and tone marks as well that changes the pronunciation.

I know many people here in Vancouver with the names, dat, bich, phuc. nga

what may sound okay in one language may be different in another. it's just that too many people are ignorant.

dont forget about pho bich nga.

also like how this a lot of people think chinese people are saying the N word. Na ge. which basically means that/this.

I confess that I plead ignorance. -never ever knew that these Vietnamese names existed because I am not Vietnamese.

Heck, I need to correct myself when I ask for the best "Phoa" in a Vietnamese restaurant because the pronunciation of "Phoa" as "FOA" means prostitute.

I always wondered why the waitress smiled at me when I asked for the House Special Phoa at a restaurant. It wasn't just about friendly service.

Phoa's correct pronunciation is

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.
