A petition signed by thousands calling on Netflix to pull Good Omens from its platform has been ridiculed for targeting the wrong streaming system.
Amazon, not Netflix, airs the show.
But that didn’t stop more than 20,000 Christians from signing and sharing the petition online.
“This series presents devils and Satanists as normal and even good, where they merely have a different way of being, and mocks God’s wisdom,” the petition reads.
A US Christian group, known as Return to Order, is behind the cancellation campaign.
It has declared a number of problems with the show, including the portrayal of the Antichrist as a “normal kid”, God being voiced by a woman, and the four riders of the Apocalypse depicted as a group of bikers.
“Please sign our petition, telling Netflix that we will not stand silent as they destroy the barriers of horror we still have for evil,” the petition reads.
The mistake sparked a response on social media.

Amazon Prime responded in good humour.
