MyPillow Petition Urging Amazon, Walmart Pull Products Hits 90,000 Signatures

A viral petition urging some of the country's biggest retail chains to stop selling MyPillow products has gained more than 90,000 signatures.

The petition demanding businesses such as Walmart and Amazon remove items from Mike Lindell's company from sale was created in mid-January after he was photographed holding a note before a meeting with then-president Donald Trump which appeared to show him advocating for martial law being imposed.

The meeting took place in the wake of the deadly attack at the Capitol on January 6 in which far-right extremists and Trump supporters attempted to overthrow the government in support of the baseless claim of widespread election fraud, which Lindell repeatedly backed.

"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 also urges Bed Bath & Beyond and Costco to cut ties with MyPillow due to Lindell's views. 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. Our decisions are data-driven, customer-inspired and are delivering substantial growth in our key destination categories," a spokesperson previously said.

A small number of MyPillow products are currently available on Bed Bath & Beyond's website in a clearance sale.

Costco also said it plans to continue selling MyPillow products because it has a "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 an update.

This week, Dominion Voting Systems filed a $1.3 billion lawsuit against MyPillow and Lindell after he repeatedly pushed the conspiracy theory that the voting machine supplier helped rig the election for Joe Biden.

The Department of Justice found no evidence to support Lindell's and other conspiracy theorists' claims about Dominion Voting Systems or widespread voter fraud.

Dominion alleged that Lindell had caused the firm "unprecedented reputational and financial harm" and put their employee's lives in danger because of his conspiracy theories.

The company also accused Lindell of pushing the baseless accusations in order to sell more pillows.

Dominion has filed other suits against Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani and QAnon-supporting attorney Sidney Powell over their election claims.
