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.
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.
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.
Still, my actions were my own and do not represent Oculus. I’m sorry for the impact my actions are having on the community.
Well, folks, Palmer is back!
Palmer tweeted this earlier today.
Nobody can stop me from reposting the same Sword Art Online pictures every year for the next 50 years! https://t.co/1iMO6DMbwB— Palmer Luckey (@PalmerLuckey) April 19, 2017
Palmer also updated his Facebook and Twitter profile to a picture of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Interestingly, his profile picture is from the scene in Star Wars when Obi-Wan says to Darth Vader "If you strike me down I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine."
Perhaps Palmer is working on a Light Saber? We all welcome you back Palmer!
