MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell rose to national prominence during the 2020 presidential election when he began spreading bizarre conspiracy theories about voter fraud.

A fanatical supporter of former President Donald Trump, Lindell has apparently made it his mission to prove Democrat Joe Biden did not win the race legitimately.

But some individuals have had enough of his slanderous lies, and are filing defamation lawsuits -- Lindell was served with one on Tuesday.

As reported by Newsweek, Lindell is being sued by Eric Coomer, a former Dominion Voting Systems employee.

The pillow magnate was served with the lawsuit on Tuesday, as he was gearing up to speak at an "election truth" event outside the Colorado Capitol.

The entire ordeal was caught on camera, and clips of Lindell being served soon went viral on several social media sites, including Twitter.

A video posted by 9News journalist Marshall Zelinger has been viewed by nearly 300 thousand people.

Lawsuit

In the lawsuit, Coomer claims Lindell "irreparably tarnished" his reputation by spreading discredited conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.

"Despite Defendants' baseless claims of election fraud being disproven by credible authorities across political parties, they persist in their campaign to profit from the 'Big Lie' by destroying the lives of private individuals like Dr. Coomer," the suit claims.

"They have not acknowledged the harm they have caused, nor have they retracted any of their false statements," it continues.

Lindell's Absurd Claims

According to the lawsuit, Lindell repeatedly accused Coomer of committing treason against the United States, which is a high crime punishable by death.

"Defendants have published these numerous false statements, defamatory interviews, and other dishonest content maligning Dr. Coomer on the website frankspeech.com, often alongside a sales pitch for products from MyPillow," the suit notes.

Coomer says he became the target of harassment from Trump supporters and alleges Lindell is pushing conspiracy theories about the 2020 election to make money.

Lindell is already facing a $1.3 billion lawsuit brought by Dominion Voting Systems over his disproven claims that the company flipped votes from Trump to Biden.

Trump Maintains Election Was Rigged

Trump agrees with Lindell and maintains that the 2020 election was rigged against him, though evidence of widespread voter fraud has yet to emerge.

Most recently, at a rally in Michigan, the former commander-in-chief claimed America is "being destroyed" because Biden stole the presidency from him.

"We did win, we did win. … We won by a lot, not just a little," he told the crowd, as reported by Detroit Free Press.
