Good Omens

Amazon Studios

A petition against the series "Good Omens" caught creator Neil Gaiman's attention for the wrong reason: It asked Netflix to ax what is, in fact, an Amazon show.

The petition came from the religious group Return to Order and called on Netflix to cancel "Good Omens," asserting that the series tries to "make satanism appear normal, light and acceptable," per Variety. The online appeal had been signed by more than 20,000 people, and the mistake went viral. The organization apparently pulled it from its website, as Deadline notes, but it was too late to stop Gaiman and others from poking fun at the gaffe.

The writer and showrunner tweeted about it multiple times on Wednesday morning.

"I love that they are going to write to Netflix to try and get #GoodOmens cancelled," Gaiman wrote in one tweet. "Says it all really."

He later added that "this is so beautiful" and expressed his hope that no one would tell them.

Gaiman, who adapted the series from the 1990 novel he wrote with Terry Pratchett, doesn't seem bothered by the criticism. In fact, he may just be enjoying this saga more than anyone.

"Good Omens" debuted May 31 on Amazon Prime Video.
