The gaming community is left shattered as one of the finest gamers of the community is no more.
The family of Minecraft streamer and YouTuber Brandon “Bashurverse” Ashur confirmed that he died on September 13.
The cause of death was the deadly coronavirus coupled with pneumonia that the gamer was battling since quite some time.
‘He Was Amazing’
The sister of the deceased gamer wrote on Facebook: “My brother fought COVID, and unfortunately lost the battle. I cannot believe this is happening… He was amazing. He is amazing.”
“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,” she continued.
“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.”
The YouTuber was diagnosed with coronavirus on August 7 and was rushed to the hospital on August 14. He was then shifted to the ICU where he was put on a ventilator.
ToastyTime used to tweet updates about his healths on Twitter on a regular basis.
“Thank you for all the love and support, you guys are helping me fight this more than you know,” he wrote on August 26.
He has 1.58m subscribers on YouTube. Between September 2019 and earlier this month, Ashur — streaming under the name “Toasty” — climbed to just over 167k followers on Twitch.
