The presidential election has been over for two months with the results clearly showing President Joe Biden as the winner over former President Donald Trump. Despite all of the verification and certifications, a staunch ally of Trump is still spewing that there was massive voter fraud (with no proof to boot!). And now, not letting the theory go–and moving on as the rest of the country has–is costing him more than his credibility.
According to Newsweek, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell says he is losing business because he refuses to drop the voter fraud narrative that Trump and his allies have been pushing since the election.
Due to the Lindell’s cries about the election, there have been calls on social media for his product to be boycotted.
Lindell claimed that retailers Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohl’s, H-E-B, and Wayfair have decided to drop his MyPillow products in the stores.
According to Newsweek, Lindell, during an interview with the Right Side Broadcasting Network’s Brian Glenn, said, “I just got off the phone with Bed Bath & Beyond. They’re dropping MyPillow. Just got off the phone not five minutes ago. Kohl’s, all these different places. These guys don’t understand … 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.'”
Business Insider received this statement from Bed Bath & Beyond.
“As previously announced, we have been rationalizing our assortment to discontinue a number of underperforming items and brands. This includes the My Pillow product line. Our decisions are data-driven, customer-inspired, and are delivering substantial growth in our key destination categories.”
Several weeks ago, Lindell took to Twitter to spread false information.
