MyPillow Products Removed From Shelves Over CEO Mike Lindell’s Comments About Voter Fraud, Capitol Riots
By Movieguide® Staff
American retailers reportedly dropped MyPillow products from their stores after CEO Mike Lindell made comments about the Capitol Hill riots and election fraud.
Lindell—a top supporter of former President Donald Trump—received backlash after the MyPillow inventor labeled the Jan. 6 riot at Capitol Hill as “very peaceful” and claimed that the more aggressive antics were committed by “undercover Antifa that dressed as Trump people.”
Lindell shared his response to the riots in a video posted to Parler, which has since been removed from the Internet. Days before President Joseph Biden’s inauguration, Lindell maintained that Trump “will be our president for the next four years.”
Instead of recognizing big tech’s attack on conservatives, CNN reported that companies such as Bed Bath & Beyond announced they would no longer sell MyPillow products due to the “number of underperforming items and brands.”
Kohl’s, HEB Stores, the Canadian Shopping Channel, and Wayfair also pulled MyPillow products from shelves, Lindell told KARE-TV.
Retailers’ decision came after Dominion Voting Systems threatened legal action against Lindell for his claim that the large election equipment manufacturer participated in the voter fraud.
However, Lindell stood firm in his position.
“Here is one page of hundreds that prove President Trump got around 79m votes to 68m votes for Biden! Everyone should want the truth !” Lindell said via Twitter.
Lindell is candid about his Christian and conservative beliefs and even stepped into the entertainment industry as a producer for the pro-life movie UNPLANNED.
