Activist and Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg announced on Saturday that he was stepping down from his role at a pillow company set to compete with Mike Lindell’s MyPillow.
Hogg said in a tweet that he “has resigned and released all stock, property and control of Good Pillow LLC.”, With immediate effect.
“Over the next few months, I will be taking the time to focus on my studies at university and advancing the gun violence prevention movement with March For Our Lives and personally,” said Hogg, a student at the ‘Harvard University.
In February, Hogg announced he was working with software developer William LeGate on a pillow company to rival MyPillow, which is run by staunch Donald Trump supporter Mike Lindell.
Hogg mentionned as the pair would prove that “progressives can make a better pillow, run a better business, and help make the world a better place while they do it.”
Lindell responded, telling Axios that there was “nothing wrong with competition that doesn’t infringe someone’s patent.”
In Saturday’s series of tweets, Hogg said he couldn’t give 100% “of being a full-time co-founder of Good Pillow.”
Hogg said it allows LeGate to continue to build “an ethical company that produces the products people need while creating good jobs paid by unions and supporting social causes at the same time.”
