MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has directed his company’s ad buyer to stop placing ads on Fox News after a reported disagreement over a commercial promoting an event linked to his repeated claims of voter fraud.
Lindell, one of the network’s largest advertising customers in recent years, wanted to place an ad promoting a cyber symposium that he is scheduled to live stream next month, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The CEO told the Journal the commercial would not have specifically mentioned claims of election fraud, but he also reportedly said the symposium would back up former President Trump’s claims of a stolen election.
Fox News confirmed in a statement to The Hill on Thursday evening that MyPillow would “pause” its ads on the network. MyPillow did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
