Phuc Dat Bich is a Lie

Letzte Woche sind praktisch alle auf einen uralten Prank von jemanden hereingefallen, der auf Facebook unter dem Nickname Phuc Dat Bich unterwegs ist. „If it's on the internet, it must been true.“

phucI've never believed it's necessary for it to be mandatory to have your entire name to be published on social media. People should be free to use any name they desire. Facebook needs to understand that it is utterly impossible to legitimise a place where there will always be pranksters and tricksters.

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.

I just want those who are reading this to take a step back and reflect what the media have claimed about me. "What was his parents thinking?" Funny right?
It goes to show that an average joe like myself can con the the biggest news sources with ease.

Und weil Online-Medien so verzweifelt nach jedem Klick rumgeiern, here's a new low in this particular Episode: „Phuc Dat Bich's real name has been revealed to Mashable by a former school friend.“ No Link.
