The lawsuit mentioned above was filed on Thursday in US District Court Manhattan against two parties, i.e., Netflix and Warner Bros. The two giants have been of accused of violating copyright infringement, trademark violations and injury to the reputation of the Satanic Temple. The Satanic Temple is a Massachusetts based politically active group that stands for twin objectives of free will and compassion towards one and all.

Shes saw debating with herself over the question if she should leave behind her teenage years to join the church of Night. Satanic Temple in a statement has said that the show used the Baphomet monument in the least of 4 episodes out of 10. The Baphomet has been falsely described as something bad or evil.
The statement further says that TST’s depiction of the Baphomet’s male chest rather than large female breasts was copied by Netflix.
