Mike Lindell Says Over 20 Retailers Have Dropped MyPillow, Calls Wikipedia 'Corrupt'

Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, has claimed more than 20 retailers have now pulled his products from sale, during wider comments on "cancel culture" at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Lindell, a prominent Donald Trump supporter, has been heavily criticized for backing the former president's baseless claims of widespread election fraud and calling for martial law to be imposed in the wake of the deadly insurrection at the Capitol on January 6.

Speaking to conservative pro-Trump YouTube channel Right Side Broadcasting at the conference in Orlando, Lindell discussed the backlash he has received in the past due to his support of Trump, as well as before and after November's election.

"Now is something I've never seen before in history," Lindell told Right Side Broadcasting host Liz Willis. "I mean, over 20 retailers have dropped MyPillow."

A number of stores have announced that they have pulled MyPillow items for sale in recent weeks. However, retailers such as Bed Bath & Beyond said this was due to lack of demand, rather than a direct result of Lindell's actions.

Several major retailers, such as Walmart, Kohl's and Amazon, still sell MyPillow products. A change.org petition calling for some of the country's biggest retail chains to stop selling MyPillow items has gained nearly 100,000 signatures.

Lindell went on to claim that Google isn't allowing him to "buy my own name" for his website, as well as attacking the online encyclopedia Wikipedia.

"Wikipedia has taken over my Wikipedia, another terrible organization, corrupt," Lindell adds. "And I could say that right here at Wikipedia, very corrupt."

Elsewhere in the interview, Lindell makes a number of outlandish claims regarding COVID-19 vaccines, including comparing the rollout to the Book of Revelation and claiming Israel is "making the whole country" get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Lindell added the state's implementation of a "green pass" to those who have received the vaccine, granting them more access to hospitality and other services, will be "the worst thing that can happen" if introduced across the world.

"This is our bodies. This is mark of the beast stuff," Lindell said.

Lindell also falsely claimed that people can contract the virus for spurious reasons such as stubbing your toe.

At one point, Willis interrupts Lindell to prevent him spreading conspiracy theories about COVID vaccines.

"We do have to be super careful," said Willis. "Due to YouTube's guidelines, we will get our whole platform shut down if we talk about the vaccines."

MyPillow has been contacted for further comment.
