Netflix Sued for $150 Million Over 'Sabrina' Series

Netflix

A group of Satanists is suing Netflix and Warner Bros for 50 million U.S. dollars (£38 million) over the depiction of a goat-headed statue in one their television shows. The group is also seeking an injunction to block Netflix and Warner Bros., which produced the series, from distributing the show. Both production companies have declined to comment on the lawsuit, the BBC reported.

Baphomet is part of its campaign to "complement and contrast" a Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma City on the grounds of religious freedom.

Satanic Temple said it does not worship Satan, but instead seeks "to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people".

On the launch pad for the past week, the action that took off Thursday is that a similar looking statue is placed at the Academy of the Unseen Arts that Mad Men alum Kiernan Shipka attends as Sabrina.

The Satanic Temple, whose formal name is United Federation of Churches LLC, said the statue has appeared in at least four of the first 10 Sabrina episodes, which were released on Oct 26, and was a "key element" of the season finale. "These original expressions are misappropriated through use of an obvious copy which is featured prominently throughout the Sabrina Series and the central focal point of the school in the Sabrina Series which represents evil antagonists".

"The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" is a supernatural programme on Netflix following Sabrina Spellman, a half-mortal half-witch teenager. The group's founder, Lucien Greaves compared the two works on Twitter. They are suing the streaming service over a Chilling Adventures of Sabrina set statue.
