Fake news in circulation has killed Mr. Bean yet again.

It was a day ago when all of the sudden death news of famous British actor Rowan Atkinson started to trend on Twitter.

The report first emerged on a fake Twitter account of Fox News. “Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) died at 58 after (a) car accident,” the tweet read.

Though  Rowan Atkinson is actually 66 years old.

It’s not for the first time that Rowan Atkinson fell prey to hoax on social media.

In 2017, a fake Twitter account, set up to look like Fox News’ handle, had claimed that Atkinson had died in a car crash.
