Netflix and Amazon Poke Fun at Misguided Campaign Against ‘Netflix’ Series

Jun 21, 2019  •  Post A Comment

After news broke that a Christian group had launched a petition to have the series “Good Omens” removed from Netflix — even though the show actually runs on Amazon Prime — both streamers had some fun with the misdirected protest campaign.

As we reported Thursday, the group Return to Order took offense to the series, in which a demon and an angel join forces to try to head off the Apocalypse. Return to Order called the show “another step to make satanism appear normal, light and acceptable,” and said it “mocks God’s wisdom.”

Netflix commented on the petition online, with its UK and Ireland Twitter account posting a link to a story about the campaign along with the message: “ok we promise not to make any more.”

Amazon also took to Twitter to goof on the goof, saying “Hey @netflix, we’ll cancel Stranger Things if you cancel Good Omens.”
