While CEO of MyPillow, Mike Lindell, continues to face backlash, many retail stores are removing his pillows from their shelves— but possibly for other reasons besides his controversial claims.
According to the Daily Mail, retail stores, such as Macy’s, claim they’re no longer selling the pillows because of a lack of demand.
The Macy’s website listed MyPillow products as ‘currently unavailable’, following Lindell’s announcement that other stores dropped his products.
Bed, Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s claim that they dropped MyPillow products due to a lag in customer demand.
In a statement made by Kohl’s, they said, “There has been decreased customer demand for MyPillow. We will sell our current inventory and not buy additional/future inventory in the brand.”
Since MyPillow is a private company, it’s unclear whether the controversy has caused a loss in investments. In addition, it’s also not clear how much money the CEO might’ve potentially lost.
In an interview with Yahoo! Finance, their annual revenue topped $250 million in 2019, according to Lindell.
“Just got off the phone with Bed Bath & Beyond. They’re dropping My Pillow.” Lindell said during the interview.
“These companies, they’re scared. They were good partners. In fact, I told them, ‘You guys come back anytime you want.”
Lindell also said Wayfair is yet another company to boycott MyPillow amid stacking pressure to disband from the company.
MyPillow CEO Facing Potential Lawsuit
More bad news for Lindell: on Monday, Dominion Voting Systems sent him a cease and desist letter. In the letter, Lindell is threatened with a lawsuit for defamation over his claims that their machines were ‘rigged’ in the 2020 election, according to The New York Times.
The company sent Lindell a cease-and-desist letter, citing he made defamatory claims against Dominion.
In his response, it seemed like Lindell is preparing for a possible court battle.
“I want Dominion to put up their lawsuit because we have 100% evidence that China and other countries used their machines to steal the election,” Lindell said.
