He may be just socially awkward but I think it is deeper than that.
He is a bilingual american. His first breakthrough to popularity in this place was thanks to his Futaba doujin which very clearly played with the meme of her not being lewdable. It is pretty much a given that he either reads this place or used to read it. And now he has sold out to everything that is antithetical to 4chan. He knows we hate fakku, he knows we are tired of seeing that stupid old ass book getting memed to death by normies. He knows that his patreon is a scam.
He might be reading this thread rightfully shitting on him right now.
I wouldn't be all happy and upbeat if I whored my own integrity for money as hard as he did and then had to pretend it didn't happen.
