I think I noticed a change with him after he put up (and then took down) that ridiculous AI video... I know he got a LOT of grief over that and I wonder if it might have soured him a bit on his fanbase or Youtube in general.
I think it was around the same time at the end of one of his donation unboxing videos he had to plead with viewers to stop sending him junk.
As for the AI video; it seems odd he had the balls to record himself declaring he could sit down and create AI if he really wanted to, but not to stand by that statement when the (presumably unforseen) audience reaction was negative. From what I can remember of it before he pulled the video, he did make some interesting points but they were lost amongst the more ridiculous claims. What could have been a video to stimulate discussion and debate instead became the 'social media' reality of being bombarded with negative comments day after day. Is it any wonder he's soured?
