Various ‘news’ posts doing rounds on Facebook and stories on few other websites claim that popular Comedian Mr. Bean, i.e. Rowan Atkinson has died. They state different reasons like the comedian committed suicide right after the producer removed him from Johnny English 3 movie, or because he was battling with severe depression, or in an attempt to save the life of a fellow actor on set, and some earlier versions also said Mr. Bean died in a Car Crash. But no, these death claims of Mr. Bean are not facts.
The fake news posts on Facebook use popular names of BBC, CNN and FOX News among others and come with a funny enough thumbnail picture of Mr. Bean – mentioning RIP message and year of birth and death that would make the 61 years old actor only 21 years old (1995-2016). Mr. Bean Rowan Atkinson is pretty much alive, and as of this writing, he is in a series of ITV dramas in the lead role of detective Jules Maigret. The popular comedian is one among many other celebrities like Will Smith, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan who is often targeted in death hoax stories. The various ‘news’ posts appearing on Facebook stating Mr. Bean’s death are in fact part of clickjacking scam that can try to access your Facebook information, redirect to survey websites, and sometimes can also download malware. So users must be careful not to click through such posts/stories on Facebook that are not trustworthy. The other death stories of Mr. Bean originate from satirical/entertainment websites and so are hoaxes again.
