Walmart is the latest retailer to pull MyPillow products from its stores as the company's CEO Mike Lindell continues to claim that the 2020 election was rigged against former President Trump.

Driving the news: Lindell shared that Walmart was "canceling" his brand during interviews he streamed on his Facebook page this week.

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.
