Petition demanding retailers pull My Pillow products hits 100K signatures

0

A petition urging major retailers to cut ties with My Pillow has racked up more than 100,000 signatures as CEO Mike Lindell pushed baseless election fraud claims.

The Change.org petition was launched in mid-January after Lindell visited then-President Donald Trump following the Capitol riots.

More than 20 retailers — including Kohl’s and Bed Bath & Beyond — have reportedly stopped selling My Pillow products since Lindell’s trip to the White House, where he was spotted with notes detailing baseless conspiracies about the 2020 presidential election.

The petition aims to pressure some of the nation’s largest retailers — Amazon, Walmart and Costco — into dropping the bedding maker over Lindell’s attempts to sow doubt about the election results.

“Time to tell our major retailers to stop selling his products,” reads the petition, which had about 103,000 signatures as of Wednesday morning. “We will not support funding insurrectionists!”

The petition also lists Bed Bath & Beyond as one of its targets, but the chain said in January that it would discontinue My Pillow products as part of an effort to phase out “underperforming” brands.

Costco, however, previously told Newsweek that it would keep selling the brand’s products because of “contractual commitments to MyPillow that we intend to honor, as we seek to do with all of our suppliers.”

Costco, Amazon, Walmart and My Pillow did not immediately respond to The Post’s requests for comment Wednesday.

Lindell has pressed on with his bogus election-fraud claims even though they have created mounting headaches for him and his Minnesota-based company.

Twitter shut down My Pillow’s corporate account after Lindell — who features prominently in the company’s TV commercials — used it to circumvent his own ban from the platform.

In February, the 59-year-old executive told Insider that retailers’ decisions to drop his brand had cost him $65 million in revenue this year “that I won’t get back.”

Dominion Voting Systems also slapped Lindell with a $1.3 billion lawsuit that month after he falsely accused the voting-machine firm of “stealing millions of votes” in last year’s election.
