HOAX: Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) Is Dead

By August 9, 2013

Follow me on:

Hoax example #1:
Mr. Bean committed suicide
Hoax example #2:
Mr. Bean Died

(Updated Nov. 15, 2013)  Be forewarned, Facebook posts claiming comic actor Rowan Atkinson committed suicide or died while trying to save someone's life on a movie set are false. They are also scams.

Links from these posts connect to rogue Facebook apps that request permission to access users' profile info and post on their behalf. If permission is granted, the posts replicate on friends' timelines.

Do not click on these links! If a blurb like the ones above appears on your timeline, delete it so others won't be misled. If you've inadvertently added a rogue app and want to remove it, here's how.

Jesus christ man… Rowan Is alive.
why are people posting RIP things?
i mean its so appreciating for him though, but hes not Dead…
As the 49th commenter said,
“Hoax” does not mean “Dead”
“Hoax” means “Internet Lie” “Troll” or something.

It makes me sad.
