  • Is Rowan Atkinson Dead? An Old Mr. Bean Death Hoax Finds New Life Online

The false news spread out like fire on social media, trending on twitter etc.

"Celebrity death hoaxes are nothing new on the internet yet this one is special in that it managed to be liked/shared over 300,000 times in a short period of time by employing some devious technical tricks".

A phoney Twitter account posing as United States broadcaster Fox News is responsible for spreading the cruel online joke.

For one, Rowan Atkinson (as his most popular character, Mr Bean) makes an appearance, and Evander Holyfield - who famously had a piece of his ear bitten off in a heavyweight bout with Mike Tyson - gets his ear chewed in a fight. The immensely talented actor seems to be online mischief's hot favourite as the search engine is flooded with "Rowan Atkinson Dead" queries.

ROWAN Atkinson has proved to fans he's alive and well hours after being the victim of a sick death hoax. "At first sight this is just a normal YouTube video from a Fox News broadcast (which is about a death but not about Rowan Atkinson)".

It is not the first time the British star has been the target of hoaxers.

The film is considered to be the most lucrative movie of the Bean series after "Mr. Bean's Holiday" in 2007.

The entertainment icon was a victim of a similar death hoax past year when claims he had committed suicide swept the web.

As reported by Newshub, Rowan Atkinson was seen in China reviving his iconic role as Mr Bean for the premiere of Chinese comedy film Top Funny Comedian.

Mr Bean is a standout amongst the most adored, clumsy, senseless, amusing characters in all of TV and silver screen.
