Oculus Founder Admits to Ties to Pro-Trump Group

Oculus founder Palmer Luckey admitted Friday night to donating $10,000 to pro-Trump “shitposting” organization Nimble America. Luckey is immersed in scandal over his financial support of an organization circulating anti-Clinton memes for Donald Trump, and dug himself in deeper with a statement on his Facebook page late Friday night after a Daily Beast article revealed his involvement in the group on Thursday. In his statement, Luckey denied using the Reddit pseudonym “NimbleRichMan” to post anonymously about the group. But emails to The Daily Beast’s Gideon Resnick from earlier this week reveal Palmer admitting he “made the post” under the name and he “posted the body himself.” Those emails are provided in the tweet below. Repeated requests to Facebook for comment have gone unreturned.

In another email, Luckey clearly stated that the “NimbleRichMan” account on Reddit represented him.
