If asked, he would probably gripe that people don't understand the
strain he is under and are paying too much attention to his every move,
and so on. The notion that people might justifiably draw an adverse
conclusion from his actions is incomprehensible to him.
He absolutely would gripe in this manner, but he was the one who effectively brought his supposed financial shortfalls to the public and made a video about it. With that comes scrutiny. He made some bold claims of poverty in that video, to the point where it was described as a "tragedy" and that lives would not be saved if he had to either quit entirely or go down to 3 videos a month.
It should be abundantly clear that the information presented in the Things Are Bad video were a complete fabrication designed to gain him more financial support in order to support his lifestyle. If he were being truthful, he would have stated that he had plans to go on holiday, not for the channel, and they were in jeopardy if donations didn't improve.
Of course his actions are going to be scrutinised. His content didn't improve, despite his promise at 620 patrons and YT subscribers (at his peak he had over 700, beating it by at least 80 pledges) that he would "grow the channel". He deceived people, so he went back below that 620 mark and would tell you that he's under no obligation now that this benchmark hasn't been met.
A former friend came to me a few years ago claiming her phone and gas were about to be turned off due to months of non-payment. She knew I had the money because my dad had passed and I was executor of his estate. So she came to my home to ask for $800. Against my better judgement, I lent her $200 for the phone part of it, but didn't appreciate being looked at as a cash machine because of my dad's money. Like Lloyd, her claims of poverty invited scrutiny, and I didn't have to wait long before I noticed a social media post of her getting yet another tattoo.
I was manipulated and fooled. I called her on it, and eventually got some of it back. Lesson learnt. It's the same with these people who were manipulated into sending him money ostensibly to save his channel, only to see him go on yet another holiday. At this point I doubt he cares much of what people think of him and how he fundraises. As long as the money is there he'll do whatever he pleases with it and when it's gone, and will place the burden again on his viewers and what remains of his supporters. He really has no respect for them or their intelligence.
