MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell revealed Monday that Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohl’s and Wayfair have all stopped selling his products on account of his continued support of widely discredited conspiracy theories regarding election fraud.
Lindell, whose company is based in Minneapolis, made the announcement during an interview with conservative commentator Brian Glenn on Monday night.
‘Just got off the phone with Bed Bath & Beyond. They’re dropping My Pillow. Just got off the phone not five minutes ago. Kohl’s, all these different places,’ Lindell said during the interview. ‘These [companies], 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 later told Fox 9 Wayfair has also joined the MyPillow boycott amid public pressure he claims is being perpetrated by ‘leftist groups’.
Further compounding the CEO’s woes, earlier Monday Dominion Voting Systems sent Lindell a cease and desist letter, threatening ‘imminently’ sue him for defamation over his repeated baseless claims that their machines were ‘rigged’ to favor Biden over Trump in the 2020 election.
Citing Lindell to be a ‘prominent leader of the ongoing misinformation campaign’, the company wrote: ‘Despite knowing your implausible attacks against Dominion have no basis in reality, you have participated in the vast and concerted misinformation campaign to slander Dominion.’
