Gun control activist David Hogg announced on Twitter Saturday that he is saying goodbye to Good Pillow, a progressive MyPillow competitor he helped launch only two months ago.
“Effective immediately, I have resigned and released all shares, any ownership and any control of Good Pillow LLC,” Hogg tweeted. “I want to thank his partnership and wish him absolutely nothing but success with the future of Good Pillow.”
1: A couple weeks ago, a very spontaneous interaction over Twitter between me and William LeGate led to us trying to start a progressive pillow company.

Hogg claimed to turn over full ownership of the pillow company to his co-founder LeGate to focus on his education and activist efforts. Apparently, not a single pillow was manufactured.
Newsweek reported, “On Saturday, Hogg thanked his Good Pillow partner William LeGate and said he would focus on his college studies and gun-control activism.”
“Over the next several months, I will be taking some time to focus on my studies in college and advance the gun violence prevention movement with March for Our Lives and personally,” he continued.
Many conservatives mocked the effort. Hogg’s quick exit may reveal the financial support for a progressive pillow competitor was indeed lacking.
The gun control activist will continue his activist efforts. However, the young progressive has discovered that starting and running a successful business may be more difficult than garnering the left’s media attention.
