Twitter has banished My Pillow Inc. Chief Executive Officer Mike Lindell, the bedding company honcho who courted controversy after persistently tweeting Donald Trump was the real winner of the U.S. presidential race.

The company decided to ban Lindell permanently after he repeatedly violated its civic integrity policy, a spokesperson said. Twitter Inc. has invoked that policy previously to fight false claims about the vote, including the ban on Trump himself alongside more than 70,000 accounts dedicated to sharing QAnon-associated conspiracy theory content. The company representative didn’t elaborate on the move.
