Fellow “March for Our Lives” founder Cameron Kasky reacted to David Hogg’s launch of a pillow company as “embarrassing.”
The Daily Mail reports that Hogg launched the pillow company as “a ‘progressive’ rival to right-winger Mike Lindell’s MyPillow.”
Hogg said, “Mike isn’t going to know what hit him — this pillow fight is just getting started.”
Kasky responded to the launch by tweeting:
To those of you who marched, donated, lobbied, and called for change… I’m so sorry this is what it turned into. This is embarrassing.

Kasky also noted, “To those of you claiming I’m ‘jealous’ about the pillow grift, I was actually offered free shares as soon as I started tweeting about it. I just declined because while I’m kind of a grifter, I’m not that much of a grifter.”
The Daily Mail suggested Kasky was not alone in criticizing Hogg’s move, noting he “faced criticism…from other gun control advocates.”
Hogg responded to the criticism by tweeting:
To all those questioning my intentions sincerely fuck off I refuse to feel guilty about wanting to help people and feed myself and pay for therapy.
You may not agree with how I do it- but ultimately I know what my intentions are – to help people.
I’ll prove it.

Mike Lindell responded to Hogg’s announcement by indicating he welcomes the competition.
