David Hogg thought he could leverage his activism to win a “pillow fight” with My Pillow exec. Mike Lindell. Now, he has to put his share in start-up company Good Pillow to sleep.
In a humiliating thread, the smug David Hogg shared the news he was throwing in the towel on his pillow company, which was neither a surprise nor a disappointment to anyone.
“A couple weeks ago, a very spontaneous interaction over Twitter between me and William LeGate led to us trying to start a progressive pillow company,” he tweeted. “The goal was and still is to create a great pillow that is sustainably produced in domestic unionized factories and have a percentage of those profits benefit progressive social causes.”
“We were met with immediate and overwhelming support,” he said, referring to Twitter activists, and not prospective customers. “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.”
It looks like Hogg is truly a featherweight in terms of both his activism and his entrepreneurial ambition. Hogg goes on to plead his pillow case.
“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 continued. “That vision remains an ethical company that produces products that people need while creating good union paying jobs and supporting social causes at the same time.”
“Effective immediately, I have resigned and released all shares, any ownership and any control of Good Pillow LLC,” he went on. “I want to thank Will for his partnership and wish him absolutely nothing but success with the future of Good Pillow.”
