Walmart Drops MyPillow Products from All Its Stores
Mike Lindell see $10 million hit
America’s largest retailer, Walmart, has canceled Mike Lindell, to the tune of $10 million.
Walmart confirmed Thursday that it had pulled from its stores MyPillow products, a day after Lindell said his bedware was being pulled.
“While we are no longer carrying them in stores," the company announced.
"MyPillow products continue to be available on Walmart.com,” a company spokesperson told The Hill.
Lindell had said Wednesday that he was being dropped over his continued claims of fraud in the 2020 presidential election against President Donald Trump.
“You guys are canceling us just like the other box stores,” Lindell said he had told a Walmart executive.
“Shame on you, Walmart. You’re disgusting.”
He also told Mr. Bannon that he had offered to lower the price of MyPillow products for Walmart.
As Neon Nettle reported last year:
Following a major backlash against the founder and CEO of MyPillow, the company's products are now being dropped from several major stores.
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said the backlash began following the recent U.S. Capitol riots.
Lindell said retailers like Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s have all dropped his products from their stores.
But both companies said their decision to drop the brand was based on lagging sales rather than Lindell’s support from President Donald Trump.
Pressure on stores that were selling My Pillow products came after MyPillow’s logo was also prominently featured on TrumpMarch.com.
Lindell confirmed that his products have also been booted from online furniture store Wayfair and Texas supermarket chain HEB.
“They’re succumbing to the pressure from these attacks,” Lindell said in an interview with The Associated Press.
“I’m one of their best-selling products ever.
"They’re going to lose out."
"It’s their loss if they want to succumb to the pressure.”
