If you watch Fox News, you’ll see his ads televised during nearly every break, and occasionally as a commenter on the station’s news broadcasts. Now, the “My Pillow Guy”, Mike Lindell has said several retail outlets have told him they will discontinue selling his products because of his support for President Donald J. Trump and for his conservative leaning beliefs.
“I just got off the phone with Bed Bath & Beyond,” Lindell said in an interview with Right Side Broadcasting. “They’re dropping MyPillow. Just got off the phone — not five minutes ago. Kohl’s, all these different places. … These guys don’t understand,” he continued. “They’re scared. Like a Bed Bath & Beyond, they’re scared. They were good partners. In fact, I told them, ‘You guys come back anytime you want.’”
Lindell has been under fire from the left since 2017 when he participated in a White House event themed, “Made in America”.
Lindell believes Trump did not lose the 2020 election and believes many of the ideas espoused by Trump in which many of the 78 million Americans who voted for the President also believe, including voter fraud. As of today, both companies still sell My Pillow products.
An activist group called “Sleeping Giants” has pressured WalMart, Amazon, Lowes and others to drop the My Pillow line. Neither company has issued a formal statement on Lindell’s claim.
Kohl’s came under fire earlier in 2020 after selling a line of Black Lives Matter inspired clothing.
