You remember the Asian man who went viral all over the world after claiming 'Phuc Dat Bich' was his real name? Well, Guess what? It was all a stunt.
Well, Guess what? It was all a stunt.
THE Mirror UK reported that Mr 'Dat Bich' said on Facebook that he made the whole thing up.
The Vietnamese-Australian social media user conned the world by uploading a doctored passport profile picture with the fake name.
It was covered by many media outlets including Sky, the BBC, the Guardian etc.
But now 'Phuc Dat Bich' bragged in a new Facebook post claiming the whole thing was a fake.
He wrote: “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... It goes to show that an average Joe like myself can con the the biggest news sources with ease.”
He also revealed his real name as “Joe Carr”—or “joker”.
He added that "I've never thought that my post would get this sort of exposure."
