A man named Phuc Dat Bich (pronounced “Phoo Da Bic”) is making waves this morning after his Facebook post has gone viral.
According to his post, the Australian (of Vietnamese descent) says his account has been shutdown multiple times by the social network site because of his name. He’s being accused of using a “false and misleading” 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. 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.”
He accompanied his post with a photo of his passport verifying his real name.
Since his story has gained traction, it appears as though Facebook has kept his profile up.
