“The reasons for my departure rest entirely with me and my own personal commitments and I truly wish [co-founder William LeGate] nothing but the best”
Back in February, anti-Second Amendment activist and wokester David Hogg launched into a pillow fight with MyPillow founder Mike Lindell and vowed to put him out of business with a line of progressive pillows. Yeah, it was stupid. And now, it’s over. At least Hogg’s role in it is, anyway.
Hogg announced his decision to quit the woke pillow venture on Twitter.
8: The reasons for my departure rest entirely with me and my own personal commitments and I truly wish Will nothing but the best.

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg says he’s giving up his role in the pillow company he launched to compete with conservative MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell — and going back to activism.
Hogg, 20, announced on Twitter Saturday “resigned and released all shares, any ownership and any control of Good Pillow LLC” effective immediately.
“The reasons for my departure rests entirely with me and my own personal commitments and I truly wish (co-founder William LeGate) nothing but the best,” he wrote.
“Over the next several months, I will be taking some time to focus on my studies in college and advance the gun violence prevention movement with March For Our Lives and personally.”
Hogg — who was a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student during the slaughter in 2018 — said in early February that he was working with LeGate, a tech entrepreneur, on a rival pillow firm.
He claimed the “progressive competition” could put Lindell, who hawks patented foam pillows on infomercials, out of business.
The so-called pillow fight had been greeted with ambivalence by Lindell himself, who had responded to Axios that there’s “nothing wrong with competition that does not infringe on someone’s patent.”
As you can imagine, people have thoughts.
ie, The self promotion side was running out of steam and all that was left was the hard, risky, and thankless grind of running a new busines.

Actually you're just a dumb fuck with no talent for anything but spouting unsubstantiated rhetoric. Thanks though; I had a grid bet with some friends and 3 months was one of my squares. I won $240! I just got home from a party with 7 buddies. I spent the money on a Wagyu steak.

I guess anti-gun people are so weak that they surrender in a pillow fight

Translation: when you learned it would take actual work to run a successful business, you tucked your tail and ran.
