Oops (Axios, so all the weird formatting and enigmatic bullet usage is theirs):
Driving the news: Lindell shared that Walmart was “canceling” his brand during interviews he streamed on his Facebook page this week.
- Walmart confirmed to The Hill that it pulled MyPillow products from stores but said it would carry them online.
What they’re saying: Lindell said in an interview on political strategist Steve Bannon‘s War Room podcast that Walmart pulling the products would be a “$10 million hit” to his company.
- “You guys are canceling us just like the other box stores,” Lindell said he had told a Walmart executive during an interview he streamed on his Facebook page this week. “Shame on you, Walmart. You’re disgusting.”
- “While we are no longer carrying them in stores, MyPillow products continue to be available on Walmart.com,” Walmart told The Hill.
Flashback: Other retailers, including Kohl’s, JCPenney and Bed Bath & Beyond, pulled MyPillow products from stores in the days and weeks after the Jan. 6 Capitol attack in 2021.
Not gonna lie: This dude needs an intervention, he’s not just hurting himself, but think of all the workers (probably underpaid) that will probably get axed if he drives his company into a ditch.
