Oculus founder Palmer Luckey apologises in attempt to not appear a shit-bloke

Palmer Luckey

Palmer Luckey on Facebook:

I am deeply sorry that my actions are negatively impacting the perception of Oculus and its partners. […]

I am committed to the principles of fair play and equal treatment. I did not write the “NimbleRichMan” posts, nor did I delete the account. Reports that I am a founder or employee of Nimble America are false. I don’t have any plans to donate beyond what I have already given to Nimble America.

In case you missed it Luckey, according to a report by The Daily Beast, donated to a group creating work to shit-can Hillary Clinton. It was also reported he was douche-posting under the name “NimbleRichMan” on Reddit.

Since the report Oculus developers have withdrawn support for the platform resulting in the above apology and Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe post to his own Facebook to distance the company from the individual.
