Renowned British actor Rowan Atkinson, who is popularly known for his role as Mr Bean and in the Johnny English franchise, is not dead.
The recent development comes after an old hoax about his demise surfaced once again and shocked fans who rushed to Twitter as they couldn’t believe that their beloved Mr. Bean was dead.
This isn’t the first time the 66-year-old actor has fallen prey to such malicious death rumours.
The disturbing rumours of Rowan Atkinson’s death sparked after a Twitter handle posing as US broadcaster Fox News spread the Rowan Atkinson death hoax and duped users into clicking on a malicious link.
The tweet read, “FOX BREAKING NEWS : Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) died at 58 after car accident.” Another similar tweet said: “English comedian and actor Rowan Atkinson aka Mr Bean is feared to be dead with reports of the 58-year-old actor getting killed in a car crash on March 18, 2017.”
The information is absolutely false and factually incorrect. In 2017, Rowan Atkinson was 62 not 58 years old.
