A Satanist group has brought a $50 million (around £38 million) lawsuit against Netflix and Warner Bros over the depiction of the goat-headed deity Baphomet on the new series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The Satanic Temple, a religious and political activist group based in Salem, is suing Netflix and studio Warner Bros.

In 2015, the Satanic Temple pushed to install a bronze statue of Baphomet - hooves, horns and all - to counter a Ten Commandments display at the Oklahoma Capitol (the state Supreme Court later outlawed the Ten Commandments display from appearing there).

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. 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".

Co-founder of the Satanic Temple Lucien Greaves tweeted a picture comparing the two statues.

"Among other things, TST designed and commissioned the TST Baphomet with Children to be a central part of its efforts to promote First Amendment values of separation of church and state and equal protection", the complaint explains.

The statue features prominently in the TV series, and is the focal point of Sabrina's Academy of the Unseen Arts.

Netflix referred a request for comment to Warner Bros, a unit of AT&T Inc Warner Bros spokesman Paul McGuire said that company does not discuss pending litigation.

Netflix recently released their latest series, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, that plays on the old classic Sabrina The Teenage Witch but with a thrilling twist of dark happenings and Satan references.
