A Satanic group wants to sue Netflix because of 'The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina'

Netflix 07/11/2018

Netflix's new adaptation of 90s/early 2000's Sabrina the Teenage Witch, now called 'The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina', has gained some massive popularity since its release last month.

But not everyone is as much of a fan of the series as most of us, as a Satanic group has come forward to accuse Netflix of... "stealing". 

The Satanic group in question, The Satanic Temple, believe that the statue depiction of the goat man, which sits in the foyer of The Academy of Unseen Arts, is an appropriation of their very own demonic diety, Baphomet.

In an angry Twitter rant, co-founder of The Satanic Temple, Lucien Greaves, threatened legal action against Netflix, believing their appropriation of the statue was used to "promote their asinine Satanic Panic fiction".

Lucien believes that the depiction of the Baphomet in the Netflix show is "deeply problematic" to The Satanic Temple, and that they have every right to make their copyright claim. 

He believes that the association is distressing, because now people will see The Satanic Temple's monument in a fictional television show (which we guess, kind of challenges their legitimacy), and as Lucien says, "cheapens their central icon."

We're not sure how we feel about it.
