Phuc Dat is having one Bich of a day.

A Facebook post by a man named Phuc Dat Bich (pronounced "Phoo Da Bic") is picking up steam. He says his Facebook page has been shut down several times by Facebook because the social media site thinks he has a fake name.

And because it sounds like, well, you know—some curse words.

The post was created back in January, but it's getting more recent attention since an Australian newspaper got wind of it.

Long story short, his name is Phuc Dat Bich.

Breakups undoubtedly suck.

And seeing your ex in your Facebook Newsfeed continues to suck for many months after going through a tough breakup. But Facebook wants to ease that pain.

The company announced today a new feature that would soften the blow of any exposure to your ex on the platform.

When a person changes their relationship status on Facebook a series of options will appear.

You can limit what your ex-partner sees (photos, videos and status updates) and what you see from their profile.

"This work is part of our ongoing effort to develop resources for people who may be going through difficult moments in their lives. We hope these tools will help people end relationships on Facebook with greater ease, comfort and sense of control," Facebook said in a blog post.

Sounds great, Facebook. Now can you delete all those couple's Instagram pics for us?

With any tragedy nowadays, the hashtags and social media statements don't take long to pop up.

Facebook activated an option to overlay an image of the French flag over user's profile pics after terrorist attacks led by ISIS last week killed 129 people in Paris.

People were quick to point out that an attack on Lebanon carried out by the same terrorist group one day before received little attention.

Well, this fixes that.

All Flags Profile Photo Converter allows users to add every flag of a country targeted by ISIS to their profile picture.

The flags featured include: Syria, Iraq, Turkey, Lebanon, Pakistan, Yemen, Nigeria, Cameroon, Bahrain, Russia, France, Egypt, Algeria, Afghan, Libya, Chad and Kenya.

There's no way for anyone to be offended now, right?

This story seems like the screenplay to a romantic comedy, but it is totally real. And adorable.

Ellie Farnfield was traveling to London on a train to teach a fitness class when she became disoriented and suffered a seizure.

She woke up at the train station confused and holding a note and money from a man named "Tom" who said he had helped her during her ordeal.

He wrote:

"Hi Eleanor. I hope by the time you read this you are feeling better. You had a seizure on the train and I took you off.

You didn't hit your head but I may have hurt your leg as I walked on it before realising you were on the floor having a fit! Sorry!

I'm also sorry I can't stay with you now but here is a coffee to perk you up later and £10 to make sure you get a taxi home.

Sorry I don't have anymore money so I hope you don't live far away. I've contacted people from your phone and medical help is on its way and you're with train staff.

Wishing you all the best and a quick recovery. Love Tom."

Farnfield is now trying to find Tom to thank him with the hashtag #findtraintom on Twitter.

Roberta Bernardo, a 19-year-old student from São Paulo, Brazil, has a new friend.

Her new friend is a potato. The potato is named Potato.

It all started when she went to the supermarket and noticed this happy looking potato baby. Naturally, she decided to purchase the little darling and adopt it as her own.

Then she bathed Potato.

And gave Potato a makeover.

Sexy Potato.

Bernardo has been keeping Potato in the fridge so she doesn't rot.

"Life is ephemeral," Bernardo told BuzzFeed Brazil. "I believe she will live these moments as if they were the last, enjoying the laurels of fame."

Open Letter of The Day: Mom With Multiple Multiple Sclerosis Responds to Nasty Note Left on Her Car

News flash: Not everyone who is disabled uses a wheelchair.

Some people don't seem to get this, and they write unnecessary notes to leave on disabled people's vehicles.

Australian mom Justine Van Den Borne, who has Multiple Sclerosis, received a note on her care from an anonymous bully who apparently thought she shouldn't be using a handicapped parking space.

Since the note was anonymous, she took to Facebook and penned an open letter so people understand how such cowardly acts make disabled people feel.

To person that left this on my car last week at Mitcham Shopping Centre- I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when I was 35. Not just MS but the worst one that never goes away and is slowly crippling my life. My kids have had to deal with things that kids shouldn't ever have to deal with and all of our futures are forever changed. On the day you saw me I was having a good day, I was walking with my daughter unaided having a nice day. Thank you for ruining that. You made me feel like people were looking at me, the exact way I feel when I can't walk properly. I am sick of people like yourself abusing me on my good days for using a facility I am entitled to. A disability doesn't always mean a person has to be wheelchair bound but lucky for you I one day will be. Right now my focus is to walk into my best friends wedding next September and not have to be pushed. I will be 42. Before you ruin another persons day remember you don't know everything and just because you can't see it it doesn't mean a person isn't struggling to put one foot in front of the other.

Think before you post notes on cars, people. It's that simple.

WTF of The Day: This Man Was Fired For 'Liking' a Facebook Picture

A Facebook 'like' can now get you fired.

Oh, what an exciting world we live in!

Troy Garrod, a 27-year-old from England, started working at Bertrams Books back in 2011.

He saw his coworker upload a photo in October on Facebook of a sweater with five wolves on it. Doing what most people do while scrolling through his Newsfeed, Garrod hit the 'like' button (along with 70 other people.)

But a few days later he received a text from his boss saying he had been fired for "bullying."

"I didn't know what the photo meant but everyone else who worked there was liking it so I just joined in," he told Metro.

Apparently the caption on the photo was making fun of the sweater, which another coworker owned. It read:

'OMG I'm f**king crying… I'm sure there's a wolf fleece appreciation page pahahaha.'

The original uploader is also believed to have been suspended.

Geez, you think someone wearing a sweet wolf sweater like that would have a better sense of humor.
