Dusty and Tristan Graham, who have two children, were staunch anti-vaxxers who regularly spoke about their views on the jab and mask mandates on their YouTube channel
An anti-vax couple who promoted their reasons for remaining unvaccinated on their YouTube channel have both died from coronavirus.
Dusty and Tristan Graham were staunch anti-vaxxers and branded the jab an affront to their human rights.
In YouTube videos on their channel selling vintage items, the couple, from Huntsville, Alabama, said they had no intention of receiving the jab.
Dusty died from the disease on Thursday, three weeks after his wife ‘passed suddenly in her sleep’ following Covid complications.
A message on a GoFundMe set up by their daughter, Windsor, read: “Unfortunately Dusty and Tristan have both passed away.
“Thank you for all the kind words and helping us during this difficult time.”
In one of their final videos posted earlier this year, they also shared their opinion on local mask mandates.
Referring to the jab, Dusty said: “Still haven’t gotten the you know what. Still not planning on getting it.
“But if you want to, bully for you” Tristan added in support of her husband.
Dusty continues in saying he has his “own passport” referring to his birth certificate and the U.S. Constitution.
Thinking to the future, he added: “I think this will be all behind us in a couple years,’ Dusty predicted. ‘Then they’ll be like, “You don’t need that anymore.”
Dusty said that he had managed to survive without a vaccine for the past year and knew of friends who contracted the virus together with two of their children.
In another post in late August, Dusty pleaded for funds to help pay for his wife’s funeral while he was still in intensive care himself.
He said: “Dusty here from Alabama Pickers. Tristan passed suddenly in her sleep on Wednesday, due to Covid complications.
“I’m currently in ICU myself, battling it out, but will be looking at multiple Expenses within the next week: Medical, Funeral, Burial Plot, Expenses, Casket, etc!
‘I would like to have a little left over to help Gabe and Windsor out. Anything you can find in your heart, will be SO APPRECIATED!! We love you guys!!”
