The home goods store Bed Bath & Beyond is facing a bit of karma after they removed Mike Lindell’s MyPillow from their shelves back in 2021. The national retailer claims they pulled the products over low sales; however, many believe the real reason was Lindell’s support of Former President Donald Trump and his refusal to accept the election outcome in 2020.
The has-been retail giant’s stock has tanked recently. The business has been forced to lay off employees and close multiple locations to try and stop the bleeding. However, these attempts don’t seem to be making a difference, with the stock prices continuing to plummet.
Over the last year, leftist companies like Disney, Kohl’s, and Twitter also took massive market hits. Each one of them has been guilty of negatively targeting conservatives, whether it be through censorship, removal of conservative-owned products from shelves, or flat-out opposition to conservative values.
One thing these woke corporations don’t seem to understand is that customers simply do not care about their executives’ views on politics. Typically when companies venture into contentious political debate, they harm themselves. Perhaps the best example of this is Target – a company that has no shame when it comes to virtue signaling to racial minorities, the LGBTQ community, and any other group they deem oppressed enough.
So while Bed Bath & Beyond isn’t the first to see this form of market karma, it has been one of the brands to take the biggest hit. The financially embattled company is continuing to make an effort to cut losses and rebuild; however, maybe its corporate executives should consider reintroducing the MyPillow to drive sales.
