Retailers Drop MyPillow After CEO Endorses US Capitol Riots
Jan 20 2021
He also said his company is a good partner and has seen its direct sales increase 30-40 percent since Friday.
The cancellation of Lindell's products is the latest in punitive action taken against Trump and his supporters since the January 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol.
A portion of the letter read, "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". "As previously announced, we have been rationalizing our assortment to discontinue a number of underperforming items and brands".
During the Monday interview, Lindell also said that he welcomes litigation from Dominion Voting Systems for what he says was Dominion's role in defrauding the 2020 presidential election. "Of course, this is because no such evidence exists".
Wayfair and HEB did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday from The Associated Press. Lindell told the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal that Melania Trump asked for a pair of his pillows.
Lindell went on to say he will not be deterred by the left's intimidation tactics and his business will continue to prosper with or without their support. "I got a personal email from him saying he and his wife really liked MyPillow".
When pressed on what the apparent evidence pertained to show, Lindell failed to substantiate any of his claims and instead just regurgitated the same baseless conspiracy theories spouted by Trump since the 2020 election concluded.
The brand My Pillow has been removed from shelves of several major retailers across the nation in what some are calling the left's campaign to silence all those who disagree with their radical ideology. Others have called for boycotts of the company.
Lindell was photographed Friday by The Washington Post's Jabin Botsford carrying notes that perpetuated numerous conspiracy theories on election fraud and contained the term "martial law" on his notepad.
Other businesses have gotten backlash after aligning themselves with Trump.
Other companies have been caught in the crossfire as once-loyal customers are repulsed by the support of some executives for Trump.
Before Lindell began crusading for Trump, Americans first saw his mustachioed face in My Pillow's 30-minute infomercial. Lindell also complained about a watchdog group, Sleeping Giants, harassing his vendors. The code no longer worked as of Monday.
