MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is preparing to likely answer some tough questions. The businessman will appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
Kimmel teased Lindell on the show during a recent episode that featured Lindell appearing in a teaser clip. Lindell accepted the invitation to join the show to discuss his recent controversies. The CEO made the headlines earlier this year for his support of Former President Donald Trump and belief in voter fraud.
“Hey Siri, set a reminder,” Kimmel said during the episode. “Next Wednesday night, we will be visited in-studio by the My Pillow man himself, Mike Lindell.”
Lindell will appear on the show next Wednesday, April 28th.
Mike Lindell Is Excited About ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’
Lindell himself discussed appearing on the show and his excitement. Kimmel played a clip from Lindell’s social media platform, Frank. The MyPillow CEO created the social media platform as an independent place of “free speech.” Lindell reportedly had his Twitter account banned back in February.
Lindell posted to the platform sharing the upcoming news about his upcoming appearance.
“Oh, this is breaking news here on Frank,” Lindell said on the clip. “I’m, wow. I’m open to it and I did promise them all, they’re going to get My Pillows in the audience.”
The MyPillow CEO also promised that he would be holding nothing back. He’s prepared to answer any question that Kimmel throws his way. He also saw the TV spot as a chance to promote his MyPillow company to new audiences.
“Mike, we are Bed Bath and Beyond excited to have you,” Kimmel said on the show. “I will say this, for a guy who’s convinced that this town is filled with celebrity baby cannibals, he seems to have no reservations about coming out whatsoever. He’s already on the road. He’s driving from Minnesota with a California King mattress strapped to the roof of his Buick and a trunk full of pillows for us.”
Lindell has faced his fair share of issues so far this year. In February, Dominion Voting Systems reportedly put litigation against Lindell, according to CNBC. They are suing him for $1.3 billion. Lindell claimed that Dominion instigated voter fraud during the 2020 presidential election. In response, Lindell countersued the company. Currently, that case is moving its way through the courts.
But many have praised Lindell as well. For one, Lindell put his manufacturing company to good use during the pandemic. Lindell produced more than 50,000 masks for front-line works during the COVID-19 pandemic.
