In an apology posted on Facebook that month, Mr. Luckey denied writing the NimbleRichMan posts and said he "contributed $10,000 to NimbleAmerica because I thought the organization had fresh ideas on how to communicate with young voters through the use of several billboards".
Yet the evidence clearly supports the very different take of another ex-employee, a former senior engineer: Facebook has a "political monoculture that's intolerant of different views". Palmer was reportedly asked to leave the company after it was found he donated a sum of $10,000 to an anti-Hillary Clinton group during the 2016 United States presidential elections.
On Sunday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Palmer Luckey, a former Facebook executive and founder of Oculus, a virtual-reality platform, was sacked by the social media giant six months after he donated $10,000 to an anti-Hillary Clinton group ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
Luckey, who reportedly told people at work he supported Trump, didn't change his views and he was put on leave after his donation was revealed internally and later fired in March 2017.
Palmer Luckey has never said why he was sacked from Facebook, but some suspect it was because of his pro-Trump political leanings.
Mr. Luckey's ouster from Facebook was a harbinger of battles that have broken out over the past year over the overwhelmingly liberal culture of Silicon Valley, which has given the tech industry public-relations headaches and brought unwanted attention from Washington.
