MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell had a tantrum on Tuesday after Fox News denied him a platform on which to peddle his fraudulent voter conspiracy theories and essentially suggested the conservative network was being "in" on a conspiracy against former President Donald Trump supporters.
Lindell and Fox News are both the subjects of defamation lawsuits by voting companies after they perpetually promoted baseless claims the 2020 election was stolen from Trump.
Last month, Smartmatic slapped Fox News with a $2.7 billion libel lawsuit for spreading false information about the voting company rigging the election, and another voting company, Dominion, sued Lindell for $1.3 billion for a similar allegation.
Because they are both being sued, the pillow mogul was somehow under the impression Fox would have no additional legal jeopardy by inviting him on air.
In a conversation with far-right talk radio host Eric Metaxas, Lindell wanted to share an issue that was nagging him.
"I want to say one thing here, there's things that don't make sense everybody. Let's just talk about Fox."
"You're already sued. It's too late to close the gate, the cows are out of the barn. Why can't people go on there and say their free speech then? You're already sued, Fox!"
"What are you have, what, are you gonna get double-sued? What's the matter with you? And I will say that straight-out, it makes me, I'm so, you know — what are they, in on it? I don't get it. Is it a fake lawsuit?"

Twitter put in their two cents over Lindell's dramatic lamentation.
A choice wording in his rant got razed.
A familiar gesticulation did not go unnoticed.
And while on the subject of hands, this user thought the reason for Lindell being snubbed by Fox was a reach.
MyPillow commercials predominantly remain to air on Fox's most-watched show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, after more than two dozen blue-chip advertisers jumped ship from the primetime show because of Carlson's inflammatory comments on immigration.
Fox has yet to respond to one of its largest sponsors having a meltdown against the network.
