Facebook shut down a Vietnamese guy's account because his name , `Phuc Dat Bich` , is offensive. What the Phuc!!

For all we know, Phuc Dat Bich could be a perfectly fine upstanding citizen of this world who has nothing but respect and admiration for females. But, his name is kind of aggressive.

The Vietnamese-Australian knows more than anyone else the problems of having an ethnic name in a foreign country.

Nobody believes Phuc’s name — pronounced “Phoo Da Bic” — is actually his name because, well, you know why. I’m not gonna say what that name looks like. My mother raised me better than that.

The 23-year-old says he’s been blocked by Facebook several times trying to create an account for himself and even had to upload a picture of his passport just to prove Phuc Dat Bich is actually his name.

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

Facebook’s chief product officer Chris Cox did eventually issue an apology for the mistake, though honestly, what the Phuc took so long?
