Lindell ranted about being ‘canceled’ by the company with Steve Bannon on his Real America’s Voice show yesterday.
He said: ‘It’s just me and the executive VP of Walmart. All the sudden, he goes, ”We’re not ever having MyPillow again”.
‘He said, ”You don’t make the rating of a four”. I go, ”What rating system?” I go, ”What are you talking about”?
‘I said, ”You do realize bots and trolls attack all the time”. ‘He goes, ”Well, no, we’re canceling MyPillow”.
Lindell claimed the the Walmart executive vice president – who he did not name – had a smirk on his face during the call.
He went on: ‘I said, ”goodbye, you’re going to be all over the news tomorrow”, and I slammed the computer.’
Walmart confirmed last night it was ripping down MyPillow products from its shelves but added they can still be bought online.
A spokesman said: ‘While we are no longer carrying them in stores, MyPillow products continue to be available on Walmart.com.’

Lindell has been embroiled in controversy in recent months over his outspoken rants on politics and business.
Earlier this year he rejoined Twitter more than one year after he was banned from the site for promoting election misinformation.
But the businessman was quickly suspended again just a few hours later when social media bosses realized he had rejoined.
Lindell was banned from Twitter in late January 2021 for promoting unfounded claims that the 2020 presidential election results were fraudulent.
The social media company said at the time those tweets violated its civic integrity policy it implemented in September 2020 to fight disinformation online.

But following the news Elon Musk was taking over control, Lindell created a new account writing: ‘Hello everybody, I’M BACK ON TWITTER.
‘My only account is @MikeJLindell!’ he wrote in the tweet at 1:25pm. ‘Please RT and FOLLOW to SPREAD THE WORD.’
The tweet also included a video of him apparently on a private jet, saying: ‘Hello everyone on Twitter, this is Mike Lindell. I’m here to tell you about my new account.’
He then cautioned his fans about fake accounts impersonating him.
Lindell said: ‘So we started this account. Please share it with everyone you know. Let everybody you know – so we can get the word out over here at Twitter in case they do take it down. And thanks a lot for helping out.’
Within about five minutes, Lindell’s new account was followed by over 20,000 users and he racked up more than 37,000 followers before his account was removed.
A spokesman for Twitter said the account was permanently suspended for violating the platform’s rules on ban evasion.
