Netflix has responded to the petition that initially urged the streaming service to cancel “blasphemous” TV show Good Omens – despite the fact it’s available on Amazon Prime.

More than 20,000 people have signed the petition that accuses the fantasy series of “mocking God’s wisdom”, but Netflix has now promised it won’t continue the show.

“OK we promise not to make any more,” the streaming service tweeted, adding: “You know, the one that doesn’t stream the show.”

Amazon Prime also got in on the fun, jokingly tweeting that they’re going to cancel Stranger Things, one of Netflix’s biggest shows.

The petition, which has now been amended to fix its mistake, was started by the Return to Order campaign, a Christian group that views the show as “another step to make satanism appear normal, light and acceptable”.

“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,” the petition reads. It also takes issue with the use of a woman’s voice (Frances McDormand) to portray God, the antichrist’s portrayal as a “normal kid” and the ability of an angel and demon to be “good friends”.

Good Omens is based on the 1990 novel by Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Gaiman recently revealed that Pratchett’s last request to him before he died was to turn the book into a TV series.

Razz

Now I will just have to go and have a look at that show, won't I !!!

That's been one that I've been passing over, thinking to myself "maybe later ?"

Still haven't finished watching the 3rd season of Expanse.

Oh, stupidity never stops. I had so many people call me to complain about an article that wasn't even in my paper.
