The 20-year-old Harvard University student launched Good Pillow to provide an alternative to Mike Lindell's MyPillow brand. Hogg aimed to "run a better business and make a better product all with more happy staff than Mike the pillow guy, while creating US-based Union jobs and helping people," Insider's Sophia Ankel previously reported.Hogg teamed up with tech mogul William LeGate for the venture. Lindell greeted his competition with ambivalence when he told Axios there's "nothing wrong with competition that does not infringe on someone's patent."
With increasing commitments to studies, family and activism, Hogg decided the time was right to step away and let LeGate continue the mission to build an ethical company.Meanwhile, MyPillow has experienced a drop in support from some retailers in recent months. In an interview with Insider's Grace Dean, Lindell said 22 retailers, including Kohl's and Bed Bath & Beyond, pulled MyPillow's products after he was found spreading voter-fraud conspiracy theories. He told Insider this could cost him $65 million. Most recently, MyPillow products vanished from Costco's website. Insider asked Costco whether it had cut ties with the brand but the retailer declined to comment.
