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.

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.
