Netflix’s ‘Sabrina’ sued by The Satanic Temple

Netflix

Netflix distributes the show, which was produced by Warner Bros. They are suing the streaming service over a Chilling Adventures of Sabrina set statue.

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

The lawsuit, filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in NY, alleges that four episodes of the show feature a Baphomet statue that bears a striking resemblance to the one created by the temple. While the organization says that the issue isn't the show's misrepresentation of Satanism, but the show's appropriation - co-founder Lucien Greaves alleges - of a monument designed and commissioned by the Temple. "Among other morally repugnant actions, the Sabrina Series' evil antagonists engage in cannibalism and forced-worship of a patriarchal deity", the lawsuit states.

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 October 26, and was a "key element" of the season finale.

A group of Satanists is suing the makers of TV series The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina for $50m (£38m) over a statue of a deity.

Both Warner Brothers and Netflix declined comment in emails to CBC, citing pending litigation.

Their website states the group strives "to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense and justice." .

The show stars Kiernan Shipka, best known for portraying Don Draper's daughter Sally in the AMC series Mad Men, as 16-year-old Sabrina Spellman, a half-witch half-mortal wrestling with whether she should forgo her average teenage life by joining the Church of Night.
