MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell Friday announced the country’s largest retailer will no longer carry his products in their stores.
Lindell explained a Walmart representative told him during an online meeting that the company would start selling MyPillow products only online and not in stores, according to the Insider report. The ardent Trump supporter likened it to being cancelled.
“They dropped MyPillow, and it really hurt my employees because they were our biggest distributor,” Lindell said. “They were by far and away number one.”
Walmart will “never get to sell MyPillows again.” Lindell reportedly fumed. “What they did is inexcusable! It’s cancel culture, and you don’t get to come back.”
Other retailers also cut ties with Lindell since the 2020 general election. Retailers such as Costco, QVC, Bed Bath & Beyond, JCPenney and Wayfair pulled MyPillow products. One of the pillow magnate’s banks reportedly ended their business relationship in February because they reportedly consider him a reputational risk.
Lindell has been one of the most visible voices supporting former President Donald Trump’s claims that election fraud cost him the 2020 election. He has tirelessly toured the country in support of Trump since shortly after the 2020 results were announced.
He spoke so strongly against electronic voting machines in the aftermath of the election he was sued by Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatics. Lindell has countersued with limited success.
Dominion particularly objected to Lindell stating during a Newsmax show that “the biggest fraud is the Dominion machines,” which he added “were built to cheat” and “steal elections.”
Phone records were subpoenaed from Lindell by the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot. The pillow company owner claims he offered to testify in a televised grilling by the J6 lawmakers. The committee declined, according to the Rolling Stones report.
