MyPillow Guy Mike Lindell Returns to Fox News with Commercial Complaining of “Cancel Culture”
MAGA pillow mogul Mike Lindell returned to Fox New with an ad denouncing the ‘cancellation culture’ on Thursday afternoon, two months after angrily withdrew his MyPillow ads when the network refused to broadcast promises for his “cyber symposium” peddling baseless electoral fraud plots.
“Hello, I’m Mike Lindell. Canceling the culture hasn’t just affected myself and MyPillow, but millions of you out there, ”the pillow seller said at the start of the one-minute ad, which aired for the first time on Fox News’ midday news show. Reports from America.
The rest of the ad showed Lindell peddling her autobiography, telling potential pillow customers that after reading her book, they “will believe with God that anything is possible.”
The CEO of MyPillow also touted “the best prices ever” on his products to thank loyal customers for their “support” during his struggling final months. The offer was a $ 99 “bundle” of her book and five pillows featuring illustrations of biblical scenes with their corresponding texts on the back.
Lindell, who has become one of former President Donald Trump’s most loyal electoral stalemates, pulled all of his ads from Fox News when the network failed to air an ad promoting his promising three-day event. to prove that the 2020 presidential election was “stolen” from Trump. (The cyber-symposium, of course, was a spectacular failure.)
“Shame on Fox News! Shame on them, ”Lindell told The Daily Beast at the time. “When I was told they would not be showing the ad, I said to cut the Fox ad immediately and indefinitely.”
Lindell continued to express his displeasure with Fox News for not giving airtime to his denial of the election, lashing out at them during his appearances in right-wing fringe media.
Lindell and Fox News face billion dollar libel lawsuits from voting software companies Smartmatic and Dominion. Fox News has filed motions to dismiss the lawsuits on First Amendment grounds while Lindell has filed his own bizarre counter-suit.
Despite her scorched earth campaign against Fox News, which began in late August, Lindell has tried to rekindle her relationship with the cable giant. Fox News, however, continued to reject his proposed ads because they promoted his attempted social media site FrankSpeech and referred to his summit on voter fraud.
“MyPillow is finished with them, MyPillow is finished! Lindell raged against Fox in a statement to the Daily Beast earlier this month, adding: “I think Fox News has done more damage to the country than any left-wing media has put together, by not talking about the issues. and choosing to censor what they are talking about! He further emphasized at the time: “Fox is part of the culture of cancellation!”
Lindell wasn’t finished, of course.
Over the weekend, the the Wall Street newspaper reported that the pillow mogul had caved in to Fox News and would start running ads on the network this week. The boss of MyPillow had claimed that since he pulled the seats from Fox, his company had suffered $ 1 million in lost sales per week.
Prior to launching his ads, Lindell had been a major sponsor of Fox News, especially in prime time. In 2020, Lindell says he spent $ 50 million on advertising on the network and spent more than $ 19 million this year before his boycott.
