The Satanic Temple is threatening legal action against Netflix for a statue used in “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” the streaming company’s spin on the story of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
The group is taking issue with a statue of the goat deity Baphomet that appears in the series. The statue bears a striking resemblance to the Satanic Temple’s version.
Lucien Greaves, co-founder of the Satanic Temple, tweeted that the show “appropriated” the group’s copyrighted design of the statue.
“The show decided to use our own central icon, exactly as we designed it, as the central icon for their story’s evil human sacrificing Satanic cult,” he said in a follow-up tweet. He later tweeted a side-by-side comparison of the two statues. He ain’t wrong, neither.
