The money came from a limited liability company named Wings of Time, which lists an office tower in Los Angeles as its address without an individual's name. Another address for Wings of Time in California business records, 6301 E Seaside Walk in Long Beach, matches one used by Luckey for other projects, including companies called Luckey Arms LLC and Fiendlord's Keep. Luckey left Facebook in March, but his donation was received on January 4 while he was still working at the social networking giant, according to the report.
Luckey's $100,000 donation was hardly the largest to Trump's inauguration committee. (A giveaway: The name is a reference to the classic RPG Chrono Trigger.) That company is managed by another entity, of which Luckey is the sole officer. Last year, The Daily Beastreported that Luckey had been funding an organization called Nimble America who made anti-Hillary Clinton memes and billboard posters.
He publicly apologized for the donation, saying that he was "deeply sorry that my actions are negatively impacting the perception of Oculus and its partners".
The apology was followed by a period out of the public eye for Luckey. Facebook said that Luckey would be "dearly missed", and that it "wished him all the best", but did not say whether the decision was voluntary.
Yesterday, Luckey appeared on Twitter for the first time in six months to talk about posting pictures of Sword Art. If you were so inclined, his Obi-Wan Kenobi avatar could also be seen as a statement of intent, to come back stronger after being struck down. Luckey's defenders argued that the PAC was anti-Clinton, rather than explicitly pro-Trump - a splitting of hairs that gave the group some slight leeway.
I'll update this story with any new information or comment from Luckey when it becomes available.
Luckey came under scrutiny past year after it was revealed that he had funded a pro-Trump outfit that said it churned out memes-"shitposting", in internet parlance-attacking Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
