A Christian group launched a petition in the hope of getting Netflix to cancel "Good Omens", a television show based on the best-selling novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. "Don't tell them She put it on Amazon instead".
Neil Gaiman restrained himself from posting more of his own tweets regarding the petition, but he wasn't done poking fun at it after just those two.
Should you want to go right to hell, you can enjoy Good Omens on Prime Video right now.
Gaiman, who adapted the book into a screenplay after Pratchett's death, responded to the petition on Twitter, saying, "I love that they are going to write to Netflix to try and get #GoodOmens cancelled".

Another Twitter user pointed out that the petitioners may have had reason to believe their efforts were successful. By Thursday, news outlets, including the Guardian, began covering the petition, and within hours, the brouhaha made its way to Netflix's social media team.
The petition said they were protesting against a stream of plot lines including the friendship between an angel and a demon, God being a woman, and a normal child anti-Christ.

Hopefully this funnels more folks on over to Amazon's Good Omens page to check out the series.
Not all Christians found Good Omens offensive, however. The result has been called "devilishly amusing", but not everyone was pleased, and that includes a furious Christian group that petitioned for the project's cancellation. Not everybody considered the riffs on Bible stories to be blasphemous, but rather entertaining and substantive in other ways. He has also been retweeting supportive, and witty, tweets from Christians who are enjoying the show.
