At this point, most of us know not to believe Twitter death rumors, but just in case there are any concerns, the number one worldwide trending topic "R.I.P. Rowan Atkinson" is a hoax. This time we actually know how the rumor started: Twitter user Michael Robert Meras got bored. (I won't link to his Twitter account, because no one deserves attention for arbitrarily "offing" celebrities.)
The Telegraph is reporting that Mr. Bean, officially known as Rowan Atkinson, has crashed his $1 million, very purple, and apparently very fast McLaren F1 sports car in Britain. Thankfully he's okay after suffering a minor shoulder injury, but his car burst into flames after slamming into a tree. But seriously, look at that thing.
