A Vietnamese-Australian man named Phuc Dat Bich has taken extreme measures to prove to the world that his name is real.
The 23-year-old was tired of people not believing him when he introduced himself, and recently had to prove his identity when he was blocked from using Facebook under their rules against using fake names.
"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," Phuc Dat wrote in a Facebook post. "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?"
If read in English the name sounds particularly rude, although in Vietnamese the name is pronounced phoop dook bic.
