Lindell told attendees on August 11 that he intended to stay on stage for three days straight.
"We're not going on a break," Lindell said. "You guys can go eat. That's fine, but I ain't eating! I'm staying up here for 72 hours."
Zachary Petrizzo, a journalist from news outlet Salon who was covering the event, noted that Lindell was talking to a mostly empty hall on day two of the conference.
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell was seen dashing off the stage at his cyber symposium at the same time news broke that the $1.3 billion defamation suit filed against him by Dominion Voting Systems will go ahead.
At press time, Lindell had not returned to the stage, and the live stream of the cyber symposium was replaced by a video reel showing news articles touting voter fraud claims next to an image of Lindell hugging a pillow.
