“Brandon Dylan Ashur. There are so many things I could say but I don’t think I could even put our lives into words if I wanted to. Why is this beast so terrible? Why did it have to get you? You have faced so many challenges in your 36 years, never would I imagine we would lose you to a pandemic. You are one of the strongest people I know, and pushed through no matter what the internet said, no matter what people wanted to think… you proved how amazing of a soul you are. I love you, to the moon and back.
-my brother fought covid, and unfortunately lost the battle. He has moved so many people through streaming. His 1.5 million on YouTube. The endless streamers on twitch. He fought so many demons while saving millions of people without even realizing it. I cannot believe this is happening. He withstood every stupid comment made by the people who wanted him to fail. He was amazing. He is amazing. I hate this so much.”
A Moderator on Ashur’s discord channel also confirmed the news of his passing. The discord post explains that Brandon was doing slightly better on Friday morning but later passed away due to Covid.
