This is why we can't have nice things.

The surprise announcement that Facebook would be buying Oculus Rift for $2 billion made a lot of Facebook-haters angry, but according to Oculus founder Palmer Luckey, some haters have taken it further than others.
“We expected a negative reaction from people in the short term,” said Luckey in a Reddit thread here.
“We did not expect to be getting so many death threats and harassing phone calls that extended to our families.”
Lucky described the behaviour as “unwarranted”, especially because it was “impacting people who have nothing to do with Oculus”.
“We know we will prove ourselves with actions and not words,” he added.
