Liberals Offended By VR Shooting Game At Conservative Political Action Conference

Facebook announced it regrets promoting a virtual reality shooting game on its stand at the Conservative Political Action Conference. The Oculus Rift VR shooting game was on display and allowed people to demo a new game from Epic Games that took place in a subway station.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Facebook is at CPAC and they have a VR shooting game <a href="https://t.co/wmV23jezpN">pic.twitter.com/wmV23jezpN</a></p>&mdash; Sean Morrow (@snmrrw) <a href="https://twitter.com/snmrrw/status/967136708058927104?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">February 23, 2018</a></blockquote>

Apparently, even video games are offensive to liberals now and despite being a conservative event, enough liberals complained that it was "insensitive" after the Parkland Shooting to promote a video gaming with shooting in it that Facebook was forced to remove the game.

Hugo Barra, Facebook's head of VR said, "We regret that we failed to do so in the first place." Barra also added, "There is a standard set of experiences included in the Oculus demos we feature at public events. A few of the action games can include violence."

Another Facebook spokesman said, "Facebook routinely participates in events hosted by organizations across the political spectrum." The Oculus Rift virtual reality display was planned months in advance and the game being displayed is called "Bullet Train".

You can decide for yourself if its offensive.
