Surrounded by a swirl of controversy after published reports connected him to an alt-right political organisation, the 24-year-old Oculus exec has issued a statement saying he s sorry his actions are negatively impacting the perception of Oculus and his partners.
A post on Luckey s Facebbook page appeared late Friday night, denoting the amount of money he donated to Nimble America and claiming his views have not been accurately represented:
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.
