“MyPillow” CEO and Donald Trump supporter Mike Lindell has been banned from Twitter.
Trump was kicked off Twitter, and now his fan and supporter Lindell is getting the boot right along with him, TMZ reports. Lindell has been permanently banned from Twitter after continuously spreading false claims about Trump winning the election against Joe Biden.
Twitter said its decision to remove Lindell is “due to repeated violations of our Civic Integrity Policy.” The move comes after the social media platform created a policy to combat the spread of false information. People have been getting suspended permanently from the site, starting, primarily, on Jan. 6, the day domestic terrorists launched a raid on the U.S. Capitol.
Lindell called the protest “very peaceful” and claimed the violence that took place was because of “undercover Antifa.”
There are no details on which tweet of Lindell’s was the tipping point for the platform, but it seems to have been connected to his false statements about the 2020 presidential election. Earlier this month, Bed Bath & Beyond and other major retailers cut ties with Lindell’s products after people threatened to boycott the companies.
Lindell told TMZ that he plans on seeking legal action in some way to get his account back on Twitter.
