Thousands of People Demand Netflix to Cancel 'Good Omens' in Petition Fail

Thousands of People Demand Netflix to Cancel 'Good Omens' in Petition Fail

The Christian organization, which is typically referred to as the American FTP, launched the petition on a religious website called 'Return to Order.' More than 20,000 people had signed the petition by the time it went viral over its glaring mistake - Netflix, of course, has nothing to do with and no control over an Amazon original series.

An angel (Michael Sheen) and a demon (David Tennant) are forced to team up to save the world from the apocalypse, crossing paths with God and the Devil and everything in between on the way.

Good Omens is a wickedly delightful show and one that I can't get enough so let the petitions reign, let people angrily email Netflix and then Hulu and then take up some complaints with Showtime and HBO about the show! "Says it all really", reads a tweet from showrunner Gaiman, who included intimate scenes with a 500-foot-tall Satan, per Variety. For his part, Gaiman hoped that nobody would tell the petitioners that they messed up about the platform. God, they complain, is "voiced by a woman" - Frances McDormand - the antichrist is a "normal kid" and, most importantly, "this type of video makes light of Truth, Error, Good and Evil, and destroys the barriers of horror that society still has for the devil".

Return to Order alleges that the show has numerous transgressions including "an angel and demon are good friends, and are meant to be earth's ambassadors for Good and Evil respectively".

Almost two decades after Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's 1990 novel, Good Omens, fantasy fans finally got a TV adaptation from Amazon/BBC.

The group continues: "This is another step to make Satanism appear normal, light and acceptable". They are calling on Netflix to cancel the show. Anyone familiar with Good Omens likely isn't surprised that a religious organization is targeting the show. Gaiman followed in another tweet.
