An online activist group has actually questioned significant retail companies consisting of Walmart and Amazon for offering MyPillow products, after business CEO Mike Lindell’s response to recently’s riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Sleeping Giants, an activist group that intends to combat hate speech and bigotry online, tweeted at Walmart, Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond and Lowes on Friday asking if they would continue to carry MyPillow items after Lindell, according to them, “called for the insurrection.”
” Will you continue to carry MyPillow after their CEO called for the insurrection and contributed in supporting it last week?” the tweet read.
The group attached a video of Lindell pressing the false story that the presidential election was taken due to citizen scams, and assuring voters that “Donald Trump is going to be your president for the next 4 years.”
In the video, which was apparently taken after the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, Lindell informs viewers to “wish security for everyone that’s withstanding these guys.”
” This is the only time we have in history to beat these guys, to suppress the evil, and beat the evil,” he states.
” This is a defend everything we have actually grown up with, everything we live for, whatever this country represents. The whole world is enjoying, and 100%, Donald Trump is going to be your president for the next four years,” he includes.
Lindell has actually been embroiled in debate for months as one of Trump’s top fans, due to false claims that President-elect Joe Biden’s triumph was the outcome of a “stolen” election.
