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.
