Rowan Atkinson is the victim of a death hoax.
A rumor that the actor had died spread like wildfire on Twitter on Sunday.
“RIP Rowan Atkinson” became a worldwide trending topic, only further fueling speculation.
It is 100% false.
Atkinson is alive and well.
“Mr. Bean” is just the latest celebrity to be “killed” by a prank in which Twitter hoaxsters get “RIP [Celebrity Name]” to trend.
