Sometimes words in one language can sound similar to words in another language but with much different meanings; we call these cognates. In this case the man’s name sounds very similar to ‘Fuck You’ which is why the police reacted the way they did. This meme also uses the expression ‘to lose faith in something/someone’ which means to lose trust or confidence in someone or something. For example, “I have lost all faith in politicians, they all seem to lie and steal.”
