Yes, the petition asked people to sign so they could tell "Netflix that we will not stand silent" about the "blasphemous" TV show.
It has over 20,000 signatures and accuses the show of presenting "devils and Satanists as normal and even good, where they merely have a different way of being, and mocks God's wisdom".
It points to the fact that "an angel and demon are good friends" and that "God is voiced by a woman". The only problem? Good Omens is on Amazon Prime. Pratchett's last request to Gaiman before he died was that he adapt the novel they wrote together; Gaiman wrote the screenplay andworked as showrunner on the BBC/Amazon co-production, which the Radio Times called "a devilishly amusing love letter to the book".
Clearly Neil Gaiman isn't the only person amused by the petition, and one Twitter user took the joke even further and suggested punishing HBO for Netflix's failure to cancel Good Omens should be the next course of action. "Says it all really", tweeted Gaimon, who also wrote the screenplay.

Boeing's troubled 737 MAX gets huge vote of confidence from IAG
An Airbus A330 NEO performs at the 53rd International Paris Air Show at Le Bourget Airport near Paris , France June 19, 2019. The LOI is a major boost to Boeing after aviation regulators grounded the worldwide 737 MAX fleet after two fatal crashes.
"This is another step to make Satanism appear normal, light and acceptable", the petition warns. In addition to McDormand as God (praise be), "Good Omens" features Jon Hamm as the Archangel Gabriel and Brian Cox as Death; as well as appearances by Michael McKean, Miranda Richardson, Mireille Enos, and Nick Offerman. "Promise me you won't tell them?" he tweeted Wednesday.
Amazon describes the series, which is based on the 1990 novel of the same name by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, like this: "Aziraphale and Crowley, of Heaven and Hell respectively, have grown rather fond of the Earth".
Just when we thought fan petitions had reached their silly limit with one to remake Game of Thrones Season 8, another one has lunged itself upon us.
Gaiman was among the first to see the amusing side.
Good Omens is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
