MyPillow Petition for Amazon, Walmart to Pull Items Passes 100,000 Signatures

A petition demanding some of the country’s top retailers remove Mike Lindell’s MyPillow products from sale has hit the 100,000 signature mark.

The viral change.org petition is calling for companies such as Walmart, Amazon and Costco to stop selling MyPillow items because of the controversies surrounding Lindell, a Donald Trump supporter who frequently spread misinformation and conspiracy theories about last year’s presidential election.

The petition was set up in mid-January after Lindell was photographed holding a note before a meeting with Trump at the White House which appeared to show him advocating for martial law being imposed in the wake of the January 6 attack on the Capitol.

Lindell also posted a video on social media site Parler suggesting he supported the insurrection while continuing to push misinformation about Trump remaining president even though he lost the election.

“Today 01/15/2021 the MyPillow founder met with President Trump and suggested instituting martial law after the twice impeached president staged a coup,” the petition states. “Time to tell our major retailers to stop selling his products. We will not support funding insurrectionists!”

The petition managed to attract 50,000 signatures in just a few weeks, although it has been a more gradual increase since. At the time of publication, the change.org petition has attracted nearly 102,000 backers.

The petition also calls for Bed Bath & Beyond to remove MyPillow items from sale. However, since the petition was launched, Bed Bath & Beyond announced they have removed MyPillow products from its stores due to lack of demand, rather than the behavior of its CEO.

“We have been rationalizing our assortment to discontinue a number of underperforming items and brands. This includes the MyPillow product line,” a spokesperson previously confirmed to The Liberty Buzz.

While a number of stores have pulled MyPillow items, major retailers such as Walmart, Costco and Amazon still sell the products.

Costco previously said it will continue selling MyPillow products because it has “contractual commitments to MyPillow that we intend to honor, as we seek to do with all of our suppliers.”

Amazon and Walmart have been contacted for comment.

During an appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Lindell claimed that nearly two dozen retailers have pulled his products while deriding so-called “cancel culture.”

“Now that is something I’ve never seen before in history,” conservative pro-Trump YouTube channel Right Side Broadcasting said at the conference in Orlando, Florida. “I mean, over 20 retailers have dropped MyPillow.”

Elsewhere, Lindell is set to launch his social network named Frank after being permanently suspended from Twitter for violating their misinformation policy.

Lindell is also facing a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit filed by the Dominion Voting Systems after repeatedly pushing the false claim that the voting machine supplier helped rig the election in favor of Joe Biden.
