It looks like not everyone is binge-watching the new Netflix series 'The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.' The streaming giant was served with a massive lawsuit by The Satanic Temple over the spooky show.
The Temple is claiming copyright infringement over the design of the monument to Baphomet that is featured in one episode of the show. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the group is alleging that the “Defendants misappropriated the TST Baphomet Children in ways implying that the monument stands for evil. Among other morally repugnant actions, the Sabrina Series’ evil antagonists engage in cannibalism and forced-worship of a patriarchal deity.”
The Satanic Temple's co-founder, Lucien Greaves, took to Twitter to announce the lawsuit, writing, “Yes, we are taking legal action regarding #TheChillingAdventuresofSabrina appropriating our copyrighted monument design to promote their asinine Satanic Panic fiction.”
He also shared a photo of the monuments for comparison.

The Satanic Temple is suing for US$50 million for copyright infringement, trademark violation, and injury to business reputation, equaling $150 million in total.
