What is the matter all about?

When a couple of Pakistani Twitter users attempted to get to the bottom of the matter and the source of the person’s rage, the latter hilariously revealed that Pakistan had sent a person impersonating Mr. Bean or the legendary British actor Rowan Atkinson to one of Zimbabwe’s local events, accusing him of’stealing’ people’s money during his visit to the African country.

Fans also reacted to the Fake Mr Bean controversy while also calling it the biggest rivalry in world cricket due to Pakistan’s penchant for playing Zimbabwe in regular interviews in the past 3 years.
