The Satanic Temple activist group filed a lawsuit claiming show-makers have copied the design of their goat deity (Baphomet) statue in their programme. https://twitter.com/LucienGreaves/status/1056735537502081025 Both production companies, Netflix and Warner Bros, have declined to comment on the matter. https://twitter.com/LucienGreaves/status/1057418640243466242 Cofounder and spokesperson for The Satanic Temple Lucien Greaves posted a tweet to compare the levels of similarities between the statue used in four episodes of the
