Phuc Dat Bich is a phucing liar.
The man who claimed Facebook was deleting his profile every time he updated it to his unfortunate-sounding name now tells Guardian Australia he made the whole thing up.
His real name is Tin Lee, a 23 year old living in Melbourne.
The trickster fooled the people of the Internet and countless publications (including Cheezburger) with a Facebook post lamenting his name.
He had this to say about his hoax in a Facebook post, which now seems to have been deleted:
"What started as a joke between friends, became a prank that made a fool out of the media and brought out the best in the people who reached out to me. It didn't bring out the anger and darkness that we often see on the internet, but it brought a levity and humanity in a time we need it most.
"Out of this ordeal I've concluded not to trust the credibility of the media, it's twisted by the hungry journalists who mask the truth ... It goes to show that an average joe like myself can con the the biggest news sources with ease."
What a Bich.
