Satanic Temple To Sue Netflix Over Use Of Baphomet Imagery In "Sabrina" Show
Satanic Temple co-founder Lucien Greaves announced earlier in the week that his organization was preparing to sue Netflix for its use of a look-alike of the temple's controversial Baphomet statue in its new series, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Although the ancient pagan symbol of the Baphomet is hundreds of years old, the temple's particular statue featuring two children looking up to the goat-headed creature is protected by copyright law. Greaves also took issue with the symbol of his temple being used to promote a "Satanic Panic" image.
In an interview with the San Francisco Gate about the case, Greaves called the use of the Baphomet "distressing on the grounds that you have to worry about that association being made where people will see your monument and not know which preceded the other and thinking that you arbitrarily decided to go with the Sabrina design for your Baphomet monument, which rather cheapens our central icon."
