MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, a staunch ally of former president Donald Trump, said the recent criticism he’s faced for continuing to support Trump has helped his company.
“We’ve actually increased in sales. We’re actually up in sales. Our shipping is behind,” he told the Epoch Times.
MyPillow was pulled from the shelves of several major retailers last month, including Wayfair, Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s, because of Lindell’s recent election-fraud allegations.
Lindell originally said he didn’t blame the companies for pulling his products, but he clarified this week that their decision to cave to the mob is just as bad as the mob’s behavior.
“I’ve been with them for years, and they’re the ones that suffer because now those customers are buying directly from Mike Lindell, from MyPillow,” he said. “So our business is up.”
Lindell has refused to back down, releasing a three-hour-long documentary last week that allegedly proves that high levels of fraud took place during the 2020 presidential election.
The film has been banned on YouTube and Vimeo, and Google has prevented Lindell from buying ads for the film.
“We’re gonna get it out in spite of all them and then our whole country… everybody needs to see this. This isn’t a political thing,” he said. “Everybody should be concerned, that’s just terrible.”
MyPillow also faces a new competitor: Good Pillow, a company launched by gun control activist David Hogg in response to Lindell’s election fraud claims.

However, Lindell said he isn’t worried.
“Good for them,” he said when asked about Hogg’s new company. “Nothing wrong with competition that does not infringe on someone’s patent.”
