Oculus’ Palmer Luckey has come under fire in the past 48 hours after the news of his involvement with a pro-Trump group came to light. Daily Beast reported Palmer’s funding for Nimble America, a pro-trump dirty meme group.

After the community uproar; Palmer Luckey was forced to release an explanation for his involvement with the social welfare 501©4 non-profit organization.

I am deeply sorry that my actions are negatively impacting the perception of Oculus and its partners. The recent news stories about me do not accurately represent my views

According to Luckey, the extent of his involvement was a contribution of $10,000 to Nimble America.

Here’s more background: I contributed $10,000 to Nimble America because I thought the organization had fresh ideas on how to communicate with young voters through the use of several billboards. I am a libertarian who has publicly supported Ron Paul and Gary Johnson in the past, and I plan on voting for Gary in this election as well.

He also disputes that he never posted on Reddit under the pseudonym “NimbleRichMan.” The account vanished soon after the news went viral and Luckey claims he had nothing to do with that as well.

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

But Daily Beast reporter Gideon Resnick has provided evidence that the account was indeed representing Palmer Luckey.

We’ll have more updates for you as the story the develops.
