Oculus VR Team Received Death Threats After Acquisition

Samit Sarkar at Polygon:

The Oculus VR team’s acquisition by Facebook last week for $2 billion resulted in death threats and other abuse directed at the virtual reality firm, said company co-founder Palmer Luckey on Reddit this past weekend.

The subset of the gaming community that engages in this kind of aggressive, keyboard warrior bullshit really pisses me off.

It’s OK to disagree with a company’s direction. It’s not OK to threaten staff because you disagree. Not even close.
