“I just got off the phone with Bed Bath and Beyond. They’re dropping MyPillow,” he said during an interview with Right Side Broadcasting. “I just got off the phone not five minutes ago. Kohl’s. All these different places.”
Several other companies, including Wayfair and H-E-B, also announced that they would drop MyPillow products after a leftist activist group demanded that Lindell be canceled over his concerns about voter fraud in the 2020 election.
The group, Sleeping Giants, accused Lindell of inciting the “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, and has been lobbying other major retailers, such as Walmart, Amazon, and Lowe’s, to pull Lindell’s products too.
Lindell described the group as “the most evil people on the planet,” adding that “they’re trying to cancel me out.”
The retailers are “scared” of them, he said, noting that it’s “not their fault.”

The news comes as Lindell faces a potential defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems over his vote fraud claims.
The company sent Lindell a letter this week warning him that he needs to retract all claims about the company or face litigation.
Lindell, however, said he welcomes Dominion’s lawsuit, according to the Washington Examiner.
“Please sue me,” he said. “Those machines are set to rig elections. If Dominion wants to sue me, I welcome it. If you’re suing for slander? Prove it. Show me. Let me show what I’ve got. Let’s do a national thing on TV. And we’ll go right down the list here. And we’ll have Dominion there, too. Let’s go to court together. That’d be real nice.”
