I was an early adopter of the Oculus DK1 in 2013, and at the time admired Luckey and what he had created. But boy, what a piece of shit he’s turned out to be.

Luckey doesn’t need to go around murdering and burying people one by one. Since leaving Facebook he has devoted his life to killing on an industrial scale. Well, that and not loudly objecting to his sister marrying Matt Gaetz. He’s a classy guy
