Amazon Prime video dodged a tricky lawsuit when over 20,000 Christians signed a petition against their series Good Omens. Only problem? The petition is addressed to Netflix.
Good Omens is a six-part series based on a fantasy novel of the same name by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. The book was released to critical acclaim and was the World Fantasy Award nominee for Best Novel in 1991.
The show stars David Tennant as Crowley and Michael Sheen as Aziraphale respectively. The two team up together to prevent the Antichrist’s revival and the end of the world.
Many Christians, persuaded by the Return to Order campaign, proceeded to launch a petition against the series claiming that the plot of the show aims to malign the definition of Antichrist and are demanding the immediate cancellation of the show.
However, what they failed to notice is their target is the wrong streaming platform. Netflix sadly is taking the rap for this.
Many netizens took to Twitter to point out this hilarious mistake including one of the novel’s writers Neil Gaiman.
Good Omens is available to stream online on Amazon Prime Video.
