MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said on Feb. 9 that sales of the company's signature product remain strong after several retailers recently stopped stocking the pillows.
"We've actually increased in sales. We're actually up in sales. Our shipping's behind," he told The Epoch Times.
"Those were bots and trolls they were afraid of," Lindell said, asserting what transpired was an example of so-called cancel culture.
But he also said that the companies are facing negative impacts.
"They're just as bad as the people that are doing it because they did it out of fear. 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. So our business is up," he said.
"The box stores that stayed with us are way busier because they're not going to those other places because they don't have MyPillow products now," he added.
Walmart-owned Sam's Club and other stores have continued to offer MyPillow items.
"This is the time we all have to stand up against this," he said.
Lindell has become known for talking about election fraud claims and recently debuted a documentary, "Absolute Proof," that he alleges shows the November 2020 election involved high levels of fraud. It aired on One America News last week and is set to air again this week.
Lindell told The Epoch Times that "they're trying to cancel me everywhere." In another example, he said, Google has prevented him from buying ads for the film.
"We're going to 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."
