School shooting survivor and hardcore anti-gun activist David Hogg recently announced on Twitter that he would be taking a step away from Good Pillow, the company he helped to co-found back in February as an alternative to conservative Mike Lindell’s MyPillow company.
“Effective immediately, I have resigned and released all shares, any ownership and any control of Good Pillow LLC,” Hogg announced on his social media accounts.
A report by the Postmillennial states that Hogg said the reason he is stepping away from the company is due to his “activism, schoolwork, and family commitments,” which the activist says prevented him from giving “100% to being a full time co-founder at Good Pillow.”
“The reasons for my departure rest entirely with me and my own personal commitments and I truly wish [co-founder William LeGate] nothing but the best,” he went on to say.
Hogg, along with LeGate, founded the Good Pillow company back in February and planned for it to be a progressive competitor to MyPillow founded by Mike Lindell, a man who has been unashamed to discuss his conservative values and even created a film concerning voter fraud in the 2020 election.
“Lindell argued that voting machine manufacturers such as Dominion Voting Systems helped rig the election in favour of Joe Biden. Lindell is now being sued for promoting such claims,” the PM report says.
“As progressives began a boycott campaign against MyPillow in response to Lindell’s election fraud claims, Hogg announced that he would be founding a more progressive company to compete with Lindell’s enterprise,” the report continues.
Lindell’s response to Hogg’s announcement was probably not what the activist or his progressive pals expected.
“Good for them,” Lindell said to Axios. “Nothing wrong with competition that does not infringe on someone’s patent.”
For the record, Good Pillow hasn’t sold a single pillow. They haven’t even manufactured one that anyone knows about, though the website still insists the product is coming “very soon.” Supposedly, they are set to begin shipping pillows to potential buyers in July.
