Firstly, there are no credible reports of Mr. Bean Rowan Atkinson to have met with any car accident or committed suicide and died. The well-known comedian is pretty much alive. The fake news posts on Facebook actually use popular names of BBC, CNN and FOX News among others and come with a thumbnail picture of Mr. Bean. One such post mentions RIP message and his year of birth and death as (1995-2016), which funnily makes the old actor just 21 years old. 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. Some other death stories of Mr. Bean originate from satirical/entertainment websites, which are hoaxes again.
