David Hogg drops out of progressive pillow company meant to compete with Mike Lindell

In a series of tweets, anti-gun activist David Hogg announced he was leaving as co-founder of a progressive pillow company start-up meant to compete with Mike Lindell.

Hogg says “we were met with immediate and overwhelming support. But I soon realized that given my activism, schoolwork, and family commitments, I could not give 100% to being a full time co-founder at Good Pillow.”

“After many discussions with William and my friends, family and mentors, I made the good faith decision to allow William to bring our vision to life without me,” he added in subsequent tweet.

In February, Hogg had announced he will launch a pillow company to compete with MyPillow.

Hogg tweeted:

Mike the “my pillow guy” is commenting on his soon too be progressive competition in the form of a progressive pillow company @williamlegate
and I are starting.

This pillow fight just got very real @williamlegate

He added in a subsequent tweet:

Key parts of the company

-Union made in America to create good jobs that support American families.
-Have an emphasis on supporting progressive causes
-Not attempt a white supremacist overthrow of the United States government

So you can sleep at night 😌

As I work with @williamlegate I’m in an advisory role for the company to focus on school as this is happening.
