More important than the click-baiter recovering from the lie that got him more attention than any other claim he's made is "will the artist be able to recover from the falsehood that pollutes a search history about them"
Fortunately, the artist wasn’t named by the YouTuber, as the latter did exactly zero research before making his video. Not even that much! So the artist should be ok.

Not to mention how it must feel for the artist if they see the dozens and dozens of messages nitpicking every detail of their artwork to point out "No human would mess that up!" I'm sure that's gotta do wonders for someone's confidence. There's even been that in this thread concerning other artwork as well.

Sadly, it's only partially their fault. If anyone wants to make money on YouTube, the algorithm must be obeyed. And until YouTube changes the way their algorithm rewards the people making videos, the quality of their platform can only spiral downward.
In order to make a living wage solely off of making Youtube videos, you normally have to pump out videos very regularly. A lot of the greedier channels resort to pumping out multiple low quality, clickbait videos nearly daily, often plagiarizing others (Hbomberguy's most recent video talks about this a bit) and/or putting literally no effort into researching the topic. There are soooo many clickbait videos on Youtube that wouldn't exist if the creator had spent 5 minutes on Google.

Higher quality professional Youtube channels that actually do research, script writing, and don't rely on clickbait/plaigarism tend to publish videos way less frequently (normally between once a month and once a year) often rely on other ways of making money, like Patreon, Nebula, merchandise, etc.

You can make money off of Youtube without clickbait. If you want to get rich off of Youtube, clickbait and other scummy practices are all but necessary.

Which is somehow ironic, as the main criticisms of AI are that they are only plagiarizing real artists and that this is literally putting no effort in at all by the creator...
