Bed Bath & Beyond home goods store is dropping MyPillow products from their stores. According to CNN, this comes following CEO Mike Lindell’s “support of the January 6 insurrection and his continued false statements questioning the validity of the US presidential election.”
In a Right Side Broadcasting interview Monday night, Lindell said retailers including Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s are removing his company’s products from their stores.
“I just got off the phone with Bed Bath & Beyond. They’re dropping My Pillow. Just got off the phone not five minutes ago. Kohl’s, all these different places,” Lindell said. “These [companies], they’re scared, like a Bed Bath & Beyond, they’re scared. They were good partners. In fact, I told them, ‘You guys come back anytime you want.’”
Supporters of Donald Trump on social media platforms are now calling for boycotts of the retailers, while other consumers are urging people to not purchase MyPillow products.
A Bed Bath & Beyond spokesman confirmed in a statement Tuesday that the big-box retailer is phasing the MyPillow brand out as it launches more of its own in-house lines, beginning this spring.
“As previously announced, we have been rationalizing our assortment to discontinue a number of underperforming items and brands,” he said. “This includes the MyPillow product line.”
Lindell, a major Republican donor, told the host Mike Glenn that Wayfair, and HEB also stopped selling MyPillow products.
Lindell called the security breach at the Capitol two weeks ago “very peaceful” and blamed “undercover antifa that dressed as Trump people” for the chaos, according to The New York Times. “Donald Trump will be our president for the next four years,” he said earlier this month.
Founded in 2004, MyPillow based in Chaska, Minnesota, has sold more than 40 million products, with a “huge number of them directly to consumers” through its website and hotline, reported Bloomberg. Products are marketed as “proudly American made.”
In 2018 it was reported Bed Bath and Beyond Inc. (BBBY) shares plunged citing the impact of President Donald Trump’s decision to impose a 10% tariff on China made goods.
