Long story short, the guy lost over 100k AUS in ad revenue due to people reposting his videos on Facebook and a bit on YouTube. That took away a shit ton of his motivation to continue, especially when Facebook wouldn't do a god damn thing about helping him out. Just one of his videos on Facebook that got stolen and posted there got over 17 Million views, getting $30k~ in lost revenue alone. Sucked for him, but alongside all this happening was all the other channels that started using his formula for videos. Most were Pajeets with a horrible understanding on how to make things work, so there's a lot of editing to make them look good. Not like it mattered to this guy, though, because he already had the audience. He hasn't been posting because it's reported that he's working on a big project with a cable network. Also, reportedly, he has very strict preferences on how good a video has to be for him to upload it.
