MyPillow founder Mike Lindell said last week that he has been “canceled” by Walmart. The nation’s largest retailer confirmed Thursday that it pulled the company’s products from store shelves.
A Walmart spokesperson said that MyPillow products would remain available on walmart.com even though they would no longer be sold in any store locations.
In his statements on Wednesday, Lindell said that he believed he was being dropped by Walmart because of his support of President Donald Trump and his continuing claims of fraud in the 2020 presidential election. He said that he told Walmart it was canceling him, “just like the other box stores. He added, “Shame on you, Walmart. You’re disgusting.”
Lindell said that losing Walmart “really hurts my employees because they were our biggest distributor.” He added that the retail giant was “by and far number one” among his customers.
Lindell added that a major bank stopped doing business with him in February, telling him that he was a “reputation risk.”
Lindell is still involved in pursuing 2020 election irregularities. He said that he recently attempted to secure an opportunity to testify before Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 Committee only to be told they did not wish to talk with him.
He is now involved in financing an effort to end the use of electronic voting machines around the country. He has been named in a lawsuit claiming $1.3 billion in damages filed by voting tech company Dominion and another case filed by voting equipment firm Smartmatic.
During a podcast appearance with former Trump advisor Steve Bannon on Thursday, Lindell said the loss of the Walmart store account would be a “$10 million hit” to his business. He also told Bannon that he offered to lower the prices of his products in order to keep them in stock at Walmart.
The Walmart website provides rating information for each product it sells based on customer feedback. The Hill reported that the MyPillow classic bed pillow had 3.3 stars out of 5 last week based on just over 2,000 reviews.
