If you’re catching up with the weekend’s media news over a cup of coffee, we doubt you’ll have missed the latest gaffe from TIME magazine. Their latest cover features Palmer Luckey, the founder of Oculus – pioneers in all things virtual reality.
The cover shows him awkwardly dancing (or is it skipping?) wearing one of the company’s VR headsets. The article itself uses every nerd stereotype under the sun, and many are aghast at descriptions of him being able to talk in ‘normal sentences that are easy to understand’. Below is the original cover, in all its cringeworthy glory:
