The Lucifer series became the most streamed series of the year 2021. After this news, Lucifer series creator Neil Gaiman has taken a dig at the people who earlier threatened to boycott the series. Let’s find out more details in this article.
Before the release of the Lucifer series, the American Family Association created a website named One Million Moms. The website asked people to boycott the Lucifer series. It was boycotted because they believed that the series is against Christianity and also made fun of The Holy Bible. They also stated that this new series will showcase Satan as a loving person who is in the form of a human. This will try to change the views of people about Satan. After this news came out that the Lucifer series was the highest-streamed TV series of 2021, Neil Gaiman made a statement. He tweeted and shared his happiness for the series to become the highest streamed series of the year. He also expressed his gratitude to the One Million Moms group for trying to boycott the series. He also stated the boycott of The Sandman was a hint that the spin-off will perform well. Well, it looks like the whole boycott thing did not go as expected.
I would just like to formally thank the @1millmoms for their attempts to ban Lucifer before it came out. Their boycott was the thing that signalled that Sandman had arrived as a comic, and I knew it boded well for our TV spin-off.https://t.co/Af80pBALsN
