The Parkland school shooting survivor and gun control advocate David Hogg has released his own pillow which aims to help people sleep sweetly.
“Your Pillow” or “MyPillow”?
His “Good Pillow” is an adaption of Mike Lindell’s “MyPillow.” On Thursday, Hogg, 20, invited people to follow his campaign.
His reaction comes after the CEO and founder of “MyPillow” Mike Lindell showed unwavering support of Donald Trump.
David Hogg Releases New Pillow
On February 5, Hogg took to Twitter to announce “Today we started a pillow company, tomorrow we change the world.” He also states ” “Mike the ‘MyPillow guy’… this pillow fight just got very real.”
Following the school shooting in Parkland City, Florida, which left 17 victims dead, the shooting survivor has made a stand against the use of automatic weapons. He’s also been a strong advocate against the far-right.
“The website will be up in a couple of weeks. We are very much in the early stages right now,” Hogg said. “But we really are doing this if you have cool name ideas dm me- we think we have one but we are still open.”
There are both positive and negative remarks when it comes to the idea of starting a new company against Mike Lindell, the face of the “MyPillow” brand. Especially when looking at the fact he was disenfranchised from his position.
Speaking Out Against the Subject
Hoggs appears to be speaking out against these reactions upon teaming up with William LaGate, a progressive tech entrepreneur, as the two work to create the new pillow.
According to the Associated Press, Twitter banned Lindell after his continuous promotion of baseless claims of election fraud.
A Twitter post by Hogg supports the claim of the “Good Pillow’s” statement.
“[LaGate] and I can, and will, run a better business and make a better product all with more happy staff than Mike the pillow guy while creating US-based Union jobs and helping people,” Hogg said. “We also hope to hire formerly incarcerated people, vets, and the workers from my pillow, in the case we put them out of business.”
Upon hearing the information Mike Lindell reportedly commented on the claims.
Lindell told Axios: “Good for them…nothing wrong with competition that does not infringe on someone’s patent.”
The debate is a continuous matter that will be watched as more comment on the subject, including both Lindell’s and Hoggs’ viewpoint, is brought to the forefront of the release of the pillow.
