Mike Lindell, also known as the MyPillow Guy, and the founder of those costly pillows you see advertised on television, have had previous president Trump’s back for months.
Concerning about voter fraud, he mimicked untrue conspiracy theories about it. He’s seemed to make up some of his own. He was so obstinate about keeping him in power that he visited the White House during his final week, seemingly trying to talk him into ratifying martial law.
Looks like he’s following Trump down to a similar path as Twitter suspended his account on Monday night.
Twitter staff have not put out any official clarification, nor is it clear if it’s a permanent suspension, much like Trump’s. It’s also not clear which tweet or tweets lead to the decision to boot him from their services.
It’s the latest plot twist in the story of Lindell, who’s long touted his story of overcoming drug addiction to start a wildly successful business empire. Over the last few months he’s put that empire in harms’ way, his voter fraud lies getting his product discontinued from Bed, Bath and Beyond and even daring the voter machine company Dominion to sue him. Now this.
In lighter news, he was very briefly romantically linked to 30 Rock’s Jane Krakowski over the weekend, though that, like his rants about the 2020 election, turned out to be false.
