Satanic Temple Suing Netflix Over 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' Statue

Believe it or not, it isn't the Christian church that's taking issue with Netflix's new show about witchcraft and the occult.

Buzz60's Tony Spitz has the details.


Satanic Temple Suing Netflix Over 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' Statue

Netflix’s “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” is a dark adaptation of the classic teenage witch story, this time putting the worship of Satan front and center.

????VO-stained glass/baphomet??So of course a religious group is going to take issue... but it’s probably not the one you would expect.

????VO-Sabrina/baphomet pixa??The Satanic temple is suing netflix over their use of a statue of baphomet in the show.

????VO-sabrina insta??Specifically because Netflix used this unique, copyrighted design without the temple’s permission.????VO-tweet??Co-founder and spokesperson for the satanic temple, Lucien Greaves, said in a tweet: “Yes, we are taking legal action regarding #TheChillingAdventuresofSabrina appropriating our copyrighted monument design to promote their asinine Satanic Panic fiction.”????VO-screen grab of tweet??According to MArketwatch he even tweeted a side-by-side pic for comparison and they are basically identical.????VO-blood moon??Geaves went on to write: “Would they be as understanding of a fictional show that used a real mosque as the HQ of a terrorist cell?

A fictional Blood Libel tale implicating real world Jews?” ????VO-Sabrina??Which is actually a really good point considering the Satan depicted in the chilling adventures of sabrina is an evil, coercive being who promotes ritualistic sacrifice and cannibalism.

????VO-candles/protest/protest??Compared to the real-world Satanic Temple, which doesn’t actually worship anything, but uses satan symbolically to advocate social justice, separation of church and state and egalitarian ideals.????VO??Which is actually pretty wicked.
