Cape Town - A Satanic Temple in America is suing Netflix and Warner Bros. for $50m (R704.5m) over its inclusion of the goat-headed statue of Baphomet, known as the "Sabbatic Goat" in its new drama series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
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.More news: United Kingdom minister resigns over Brexit and backs another referendum
While the Satanic Temple might sound like your average run-of-the-mill satanists, the group is actually known for its political activism and use of satire against what it says is Christian privilege in the USA government.
The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina is a supernatural drama programme starring United States actress Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina Spellman, a half-mortal half-witch who is torn between her two identities.
Speaking to CNBC, Lucien Greaves, co-founder of the Satanic Temple, said the statue's appearance on the show, which he described on Twitter as "asinine Satanic Panic fiction", will damage what the TST represents and the work it has done.More news: Tottenham's Harry Kane would be revered if he was Italian - Mauricio Pochettino
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".
Neither Warner Bros or Netflix has commented on the case. The group is also seeking an injunction to block Netflix and Warner Bros., which produced the series, from distributing the show.
Satanic Temple said it does not worship Satan, but instead seeks "to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people".More news: CC Sabathia, Yankees Agree On 1-Year Contract
