David Hogg Steps Back from Company He Founded to Compete with Mike Lindell’s MyPillow
Parkland shootout survivor and gun control advocate David Hogg announced on Saturday that he would step down from his role at the pillow company he had started competing with Mike Lindell's conservative MyPillow.
The 20-year-old tweeted that he had "resigned and released all shares, property and control of Good Pillow LLC with immediate effect."
"The reasons for leaving are entirely up to me and my personal commitments, and I really wish [Co-Founder William LeGate] the best," he wrote.
He said he would leave LeGate to realize its goal of "creating an ethical company that makes products people need while creating good union-paid jobs while supporting social causes".
"Over the next few months, I'll be taking some time to focus on my college studies and advancing the gun violence prevention movement with March For Our Lives and in person," said Hogg, a Harvard University student.
Hogg first announced in February that it had partnered with LeGate, a technology entrepreneur, to offer Lindell's MyPillow a "progressive contest". He said they could put Lindell out of business.
Shortly thereafter, Hogg, who was a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while filming in 2018, announced that he would be retiring from his role as board member for March For Our Lives.
Lindell, for his part, welcomed the challenge, telling Axios at the time that "there is nothing wrong with competition that does not infringe a person's patent".
LeGate replied to Hoggs' tweets on Saturday, saying, "You have been a pleasure to work with, David."
"I can't wait to see what you do in the future and we will be sending you pillows from the first batch," he added.
