More victims of the Intellectual Horse Paste Web:
A married Alabama couple known for their reselling videos on YouTube under the name “Alabama Pickers” have both died of COVID.
Dusty and Tristan Graham lived in Huntsville, where they would often post videos about various tips and tricks to reselling vintage items like clothes and home decor. They sold on eBay under the username, bama4348.
Dusty died Thursday, almost three weeks after his wife did, according to the GoFundMe page set up by one of their children.
“Unfortunately, Dusty and Tristan have both passed away,” Windsor Graham posted on the page. “Thank you all for your kind words and helping us during this difficult time. We will be using the money to pay for funeral expenses.”
One of the last videos the married couple posted on their now deleted YouTube channel was about how they wouldn’t get the vaccine.
It was later reposted on Vaxx Mann’s channel, which is connected to a website titled SORRYANTIVAXXER.COM, dedicated to sharing stories of people who have gotten COVID and died, or came close to dying after sharing their anti-vax beliefs.
“I’ve got my own passport. It’s called the ‘Bill of Rights,’” Dusty said in the video around the 41:30 mark. “I think this will be all behind us in a couple of years.”
I guess the virus doesn’t recognize that one.
Everyone can make their own judgments, but personally as something to do with your money I would rank “donating to GoFundMes for people who proudly refused to take the vaccine and encouraged others not to” somewhere below “trying to corner the market on Christian Hackenberg rookie cards.”
