My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell said that Costco is going to stop carrying his products over his claim that there was widespread fraud during the 2020 election.
“Costco basically did a slow cancellation, slower than the other stores,” Lindell told The New York Post.
Lindell said in February that more than 20 retailers decided not to sell his products anymore and that he lost $65 million for his support of former President Trump’s election claims.
Lindell said Costco “said they were going to discontinue us but they were going to honor their contract, which I’m not sure what that means.”
He believes Costco’s decision was a part of “cancel culture” that led other companies to drop him for his political beliefs, the New York Post reported.
“Management has no comment at this time,” a Costco spokesperson told The Hill.
There has been a petition with more than 108,000 signatures urging Costco, Walmart and Amazon to drop Lindell’s products.
Lindell said the company will lose between $4 million and $10 million in annual sales and that 40 jobs have been affected by Costco’s move.
Although some jobs were able to be moved to other parts of the company, some people had to be laid off.
“My Pillow has 2500 employees. They all have families and stuff to support and, you know, shame on all of them, including Costco, that they did this to My Pillow. We’ve been with these companies for a long time,” Lindell told The Hill.
“They are doing this because I’m speaking out about something I believe in,” he added.
Lindell is being sued by Dominion Voting Systems for $1.3 billion for his false fraud claims that the use of Dominion voting machines cost Trump the election.
