MyPillow CEO and 2020 election conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell appeared on Steve Bannon‘s podcast and declared that Fox News has discontinued running ads for his company. But according to a source speaking to Mediaite, his ads were put on hold by the network because he can’t pay his bills.
“I’m bringing some disturbing news,” Lindell told Bannon on Thursday. “Ever since I’ve been speaking out about our election platforms since January ’21, they’ve been attacking my company, MyPillow, with cancel culture… and now Fox News.”
“Fox News has cancelled MyPillow,” he said, before saying the cancelation came because “my brand is branded right with our great real president, Donald Trump” or “maybe it’s because I brought Lou Dobbs over to my Lindell TV network this week.”
“It’s just, it’s disturbing. It’s disgusting,” he added.
But a source speaking to Mediaite says the partnership was paused due to ads that still haven’t been paid for since August of last year.
“As soon as their account is paid, we would be happy to accept their advertising,” a Fox News spokesperson told Mediaite.
