The Satanic Temple is suing Netflix for $150 million

The Satanic Temple is suing Netflix for $150 million

They're also seeking to stop any more Sabrina from being distributed or reproduced as long as it has their Baphomet included.

The Wrap reports that The Satanic Temple is "claiming copyright infringement, trademark violation and injury to business reputation, asking for $50 million for each, and a total of $150 million in damages", according to court documents filed in NY obtained by the outlet.

The Satanic Temple, based in Salem, Massachusetts, defines its mission, in part, to "reject tyrannical authority" and to "encourage benevolence and empathy among all people". 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. The real Satanists, it argues, did not deserve being associated with the show's antagonists, who "engage in cannibalism and forced-worship of a patriarchal deity".

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 claim a statue featured in the dark reboot of the 90s sitcom, Sabrina The Teenage Witch, is a copy of their depiction of the goat-headed deity Baphomet.

The devil is sometimes in the details, and that's why Netflix is being sued over its new series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

When contacted for comment, Netflix referred the request to Warner Bros, however Warner Bros spokesman Paul McGuire said the company does not discuss pending litigation.

The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina is a supernatural drama which follows the half-mortal half-witch teenager Sabrina Spellman.
