Satanists are suing Netflix over ‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’

The Satanic Temple is making good on their threats from earlier this year when they claimed they would take legal action against Netflix for using a statue they created in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

The Netflix logo is seen on their office in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, July 16, 2018.

In papers filed to the US District Court, The Satanic Temple (TST) said in the show Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the two large entertainment companies misappropriated its statue "Baphomet with Children" in ways implying that it "stands for evil".

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.

He added: 'It's distressing on the grounds that you have to worry about that association being made where people will see your monument and not know which preceded the other, and thinking that you arbitrarily chose to go with the Sabrina design for your Baphomet monument, which rather cheapens our central icon'.

For six months he battled the disease but returned in September only to suffer a fractured toe during practice. Jones even led Texas in scoring at 13.5 points though the first 10 games of his sophomore season.

When contacted by Deadline, Netflix said talk to Warner Bros, and WB unsurprisingly had no comment on this highway to Hell litigation.

Not only is the Satanic Temple peeved about what it says is its work showing up on the recently launched series from Riverdale EP Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, but also the context in which it is displayed.

In addition to monetary relief, the lawsuit seeks digital removal of the statue from future distributions of the series.

It is based on a comic book of the same name, which also inspired the show Sabrina the Teenage Witch, a series which ran from 1996-2003.
