Stores drop MyPillow after CEO pushes election conspiracies

The companies say they made that decision because C-E-O Mike Lindell has continued to support conspiracy theories concerning Donald Trump's loss of the presidential election.

Dominion Voting Systems, one of the biggest election equipment manufacturers in the US, has threatened legal action against Lindell if he did not retract his accusations and issue an apology after accusing Dominion of stealing millions of votes for President-elect Joe Biden.

Speaking with Right Side Broadcasting Network, which is best known for its live stream coverage of Trump rallies on its YouTube channel, Lindell said this week that Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl's were good companies but were feeling pressured by social media campaigns.

Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. will stop selling products from bedding company My Pillow, citing poor sales for a brand that has been embroiled in controversy over its founder's pro-Trump views. As of earlier on Tuesday, My Pillow products were still available on the Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl's websites. They were good partners.

"I would really welcome them to sue me because I have all the evidence against them", he told The New York Times.

He now faces "welcomed" litigation from Dominion Voting Systems, whose lawyers have accused him of making "false and conspiratorial" claims that the election technology firm somehow altered the outcome of the November 3 vote.

Dominion accuses Lindell of being a leader of a "misinformation campaign".

Lindell also heard from Dominion Voting Systems Monday. Trump, reportedly an avid watcher of Fox News, has hosted Lindell at the White House several times, including as recently as last weekend.

Lindell said he doesn't regret his election claims or his support of Trump, who he said he first met in 2016.

Many households purged their pantries of Goya products after the CEO of the company appeared next to Trump at the White House and praised him effusively. "I overnighted him pillows from my Minnesota factory", Lindell said.

Mike Lindell, aka "The MyPillow Guy", has been a long-time vocal supporter of soon-to-be-ex-President Trump which is weird on its own but also not really surprising.

In response to the letter, Lindell said, "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".

'I wanted to get it to the president.
