Oculus co-founder Palmer Luckey has denied a report that he wrote posts associated with a pro-Donald Trump group called Nimble America, or that he supports Trump as a presidential candidate.
"I am deeply sorry that my actions are negatively impacting the perception of Oculus and its partners," he wrote on Facebook. "The recent news stories about me do not accurately represent my views."
Yesterday, The Daily Beast reported that Luckey had helped fund a pro-Trump group called Nimble America, which was attempting to change the media narrative with "shitposting" and "meme magic." According to the report, Luckey had confirmed that he was behind a now-deleted Reddit account called NimbleRichMan, who purported to be a wealthy Trump supporter.
