Rowan Atkinson Death Hoax

February 26, 2012 by staff 

Rowan Atkinson Death Hoax, Incidentally, this particular hoax follows on the heel of a rather curious one that was trending on Saturday – “RIP Facebook”!

This time, unlike earlier occasions, it seems the originator of the hoax has been more readily identified. A Michael Robert Meras was the man who apparently started it all.  The actor was very much alive when Meras, tweeted: “RIP Rowan Atkinson”. eras later clarified that it was a joke.

“Shutting down now. Sorry guys, RIP Rowan Atkinson was just a joke. Sorry for that matter, I never thought it would be that viral,” Meras tweeted later.

Unfortunately for him, the apology and admission came too late. Angry Atkinson fans and concerned tweeters started bulldozing him!
