‘You’re disgusting!’ My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell rips Walmart after products pulled from shelves

My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell paid yet another steep price this week for his support of Donald Trump and the former president’s claim that he lost the 2020 election due to election fraud.

Retail giant Walmart announced that it pulled MyPillow products from its stores, according to The Hill, which reported that the move comes as Lindell “continues to falsely claim the 2020 presidential election was rigged against former President Trump.”

A Walmart spokesperson confirmed MyPillow products were removed but noted that they are still available on the company’s website.

“While we are no longer carrying them in stores, MyPillow products continue to be available on Walmart.com,” the spokesperson told The Hill.

Lindell appeared on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast and told the former Trump aide that he learned of the decision from a Walmart executive over a video call, being told that MyPillow products had fallen below a rating of four.

He further stated that the product removal would be a “$10 million hit” to his company, saying the company was spending $500,000 a week on television advertising. Lindell also said he offered to lower the price of MyPillow products for Walmart.

“You guys are canceling us just like the other box stores,” Lindell said he had told a Walmart executive during an interview streamed on his Facebook page. “Shame on you, Walmart. You’re disgusting.” He also called Walmart executives “cowards.”

“I said, ‘Shame on you, Walmart. You have over 10,000 vendors from China. I make all my pillows in Minnesota,’” Lindell told Insider. “I was so upset. I shut the computer.”

“What they did is inexcusable! It’s cancel culture, and you don’t get to come back,” he added, saying Walmart would “never get to sell MyPillows again.”

Sticking with that theme, Lindell also told the Daily Beast that the removal was another example of cancel culture.

“We are up to like about 8,000 pillows a week,” he said. “You should go in there [Walmart] and see the pillows that are made in China, and all their pillows are made overseas.”

Bed Bath & Beyond announced in 2021 that it stopped selling MyPillow products allegedly due to poor sales.

“We have been rationalizing our assortment to discontinue a number of underperforming items and brands. This includes the MyPillow product line. Our decisions are data-driven, customer-inspired and are delivering substantial growth in our key destination categories,” a spokesperson said at the time.

Kohls also said at the time that there “has been decreased customer demand for MyPillow.”

Lindell was sued by voting system companies Dominion and Smartmatic for defamation and deceptive trade practices over his claims about the 2020 election. He filed countering law suits, but both have been dismissed.
