Black Lives Matter has made it very clear that you either will tow the line of their message or face their wrath.
Unfortunately, corporation after corporation is succumbing to their demands.
They’re enabling the radical group.
Take Tucker Carlson’s popular TV show on Fox News for example.
Tucker gave an honest assessment of the Black Lives Matter movement and now faces lost advertisement from businesses cowering in fear to Black Lives Matter.
But not Mike Lindell, CEO of MyPillow!
He’s chosen to stand by Tucker and keep advertising for his business on the program.
Newsweek has the latest details on the situation:
As major advertisers pull out of Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News, one of the show’s biggest sponsors is staying put.
MyPillow has confirmed they will not be changing their advertising on the program as other major companies such as Disney and T-Mobile publicly distance themselves from Tucker Carlson due to his opinions on the Black Lives Matter movement.
In a statement provided to Newsweek, CEO of MyPillow Mike Lindell said: “MyPillow is not changing its advertising. I make all my advertising decisions based on what is best for my customers and my employees.
“MyPillow believes all lives matter and values all our employees and customers, treating them like family.”
Sometimes referred to as “the MyPillow guy,” Lindell is a friend of President Donald Trump and the Minnesota chairman for his 2020 reelection campaign. He has previously said he is considering running for governor of Minnesota in 2022, according to Politico.
His company is a major advertiser on Carlson’s show, with 45 airings between May 27 and June 9, according to iSpot.tv.
Disney, Papa John’s and T-Mobile, companies who have pledged their support for Black Lives Matter in the wake of protests over George Floyd’s death, pulled their advertising from Tucker Carlson’s show off the back of the conservative talk show host’s remarks this week.
The backlash occurred following Carlson’s Monday night monologue about the George Floyd protests which he declared were “definitely not about black lives.”
Disney confirmed to Deadline that they would not be placing any further ads on Tucker Carlson. The company said to Popular Information that the ABC ads (of which Disney is the parent company) were placed by a third party ad buyer, with the company unaware they were aired during the show.
Thank you Mike Lindell for refusing to bow down to Black Lives Matter!
Here’s what’s trending on Twitter over Lindell’s decision:

Vulture reports that the LEGO company has also ceded to BLM demands and removed all advertising for police toys:
Lego is taking a firm stand in support of protestors and the Black Lives Matter movement. On Wednesday, June 2, Lego announced on Twitter that it would donate $4 million to “organizations dedicated to supporting black children and educating all children about racial equality.” The toy company behind the popular The Lego Movie franchise and The Lego Batman Movie did not stop there, however, as it went on to announce that it would remove any marketing for any toy sets that include police characters or are based around a police theme. An email acquired by Toy Book sent to Lego’s affiliate marketers requests removal of product listings and features for more than 30 Lego building sets, mini-figures, and accessories that include representation of police officers, firefighters, criminals, emergency vehicles, and buildings. Given the political undertones of The Lego Movie, it’s no surprise that Lego is putting its money where its mouth is in regards to issues pertaining to social justice. Everything is not awesome, but Lego is doing its part to fix that.
Maybe these companies will realize at some point that curtailing to the demands of a radical group won't sit well with the average American.
