Mike Lindell, the My Pillow CEO and staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump, has been permanently banned from Twitter, a company spokesperson confirmed.

“The account you referenced has been permanently suspended due to repeated violations of our Civic Integrity Policy,” a Twitter spokesperson told the Daily Dot.

Twitter’s Civic Integrity Policy prohibits users from posting content with the intention of “manipulating or interfering in elections or other civic processes.” Following the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Twitter has permanently banned users en masse who repeatedly shared election misinformation, including debunked voter fraud claims. 

Lindell’s Twitter ban is a fitting endnote to the disgraced businessman’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad month. Last week, Lindell threw an on-air tantrum after learning that several major retailers including Bed, Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s would no longer stock his product due to his support of the Capitol riot. Lindell blamed the My Pillow blacklisting on the “evil, crazy, left deep state” and, of course, communism.

Lindell now joins his ride-or-die Trump in Twitter exile. The former president had his account permanently suspended on Jan. 8 “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
