man on phone with credit card, canceling amazon prime video
Christians are canceling their Prime Video subscriptions in the wake of a new show focused on Lucifer's daughter.

Christian viewers are canceling their Prime Video subscriptions in protest of a new animated show, which they argue satirizes Christianity and the creation story. Some are even calling the program itself "evil".

In many ways, it seems inevitable that Amazon’s animated series aimed at adults, "Hazbin Hotel," would court controversy.

Set in Hell, the series follows protagonist (and daughter of Lucifer) Charlie Morningstar, and her titular hotel, aimed at rehabilitating the hellish denizens so that they may enter heaven.

Though the series largely focuses on Charlie and her girlfriend Vaggie, biblical characters also fill out some of the supporting cast, including Charlie’s father Lucifer, Adam, and Saint Peter.

So far, the show has been incredibly popular – setting a record for the most-ever streams of an animated series on Prime Video at 94 million. 

Despite its popularity, many believers aren’t planning to check into the Hazbin Hotel.

Cancellation Threats Grow

When Prime Video posted the first two minutes of the new series on X, formerly known as Twitter, it’s possible they didn’t know the outrage they’d be courting.

While fans of the series praised the show, people of faith quickly fought back, arguing the show glorifies Satan. Many threatened to cancel their Amazon Prime subscriptions over it. 

Cancel Culture?

This isn’t the first time Christians have protested media they deemed blasphemous. Famously, Martin Scorsese’s 1988 film The Last Temptation of Christ drew ire from Christian viewers who found its portrayal of Christ struggling internally with his divinity outrageous, leading to protests, death threats, and even a terrorist attack in Paris at a screening of the film. 

More recently, there was widespread Catholic outrage over an Irish sketch show which depicted God as a rapist, leading to many Irish Catholics to call for a return of blasphemy laws which would have made the jokes illegal.

Regardless, it seems the Christian protests over Hazbin Hotel will do little to stop the potential juggernaut series. Series creator VinziePop posted the first episode of the new series on her YouTube page earlier this month, and it already has nearly five million views – and that’s not even including streaming numbers on Prime Video.

Still, it’s opened a dialogue on how we should engage with media content we disagree with, particularly when it comes to the world of faith. 

Are believers right to be outraged that Amazon would promote this type of content? Or are their concerns unreasonable?

    What gives ANYONE the right to dictate to others what they can watch or not? This is totally out of hand.

      I agree. Sadly the christian nationalist political party is doing just that in many school districts in Coorado.

        1. John Condron's Avatar John Condron

          She didn't capitalize those words, John Robert Milner. To those fluent in English, that indicates she was not using the phrase as a proper noun. Instead, her words should be read as descriptive, rather than as the name of a political party.

          I have to assume, though, that she was referring to the US Republican party, which formed an unholy alliance with evangelical christians decades ago.

          Perhaps you are unfamiliar with the Republican party?

      It's really not dictating, they're voting with their dollars, like anybody can, nothing wrong with that. The dollars are, after all, what Amazon is after in the first place. So really this is just market feedback.

    I have Amazon Prime Video and have seen this series listed but decided I wasn't interested because I don't much care for animated films and shows. But now I HAVE to watch it. Shows and films that make light, fun, and or question religious mythologies I find generally entertaining and sometimes even enlightening.

    Well, interesting hypocrisy since Christians invented demons in the first place when they made up the book of Enoch.

    1. John Condron's Avatar John Condron

      Umm... The Book of Enoch is an ancient Hebrew apocalyptic religious text, ascribed by tradition to the patriarch Enoch who was the father of Methuselah and the great-grandfather of Noah.

      In other words, it was not "made up" by Christians... it was made up by even more ancient uneducated shepherds.

      1. Parson Golden's Avatar Parson Golden

        Well thank you for that clarification, you are correct and Enoch was a poor choice. But it’s a moot point, I could well have made the same analogy with Ephesians, Luke, Mark, Matthew or a dozen other books in the Bible where the myth of demons has been invented and perpetuated in every version of the Bible, written, edited, added to by Christians. With the myth perpetuated to this day in every Christian church in the world.

        1. John Condron's Avatar John Condron

          Yes, Parson Golden -- but you didn't.

          But... since Enoch does mention demons, your claim that christians invented demons would still be incorrect.

          1. Parson Golden's Avatar Parson Golden

            No, you are still wrong.

            I acknowledge that the book of Enoch was a poor choice. However it is a moot point because Christian did invent demons.

            When ancient scribes translated the Hebrew Bible into Greek, they used “daimon” for Hebrew terms referring to a number of different concepts, including pagan gods, human-animal hybrids, and diseases. But notably, they didn’t use “daimon” to mean angel, good or evil, even though there are plenty of supernatural creatures acting as intermediaries between humans and the divine fit neatly with the word’s meaning to ancient Greeks.

            In the New Testament, the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke all to equate demons with evil spirits. They also unify the figures of Satan, the devil, and Beelzebul. Luke refers to Satan “falling from heaven,” while Matthew mentions “the devil and his angels.”.

            So while the literal translations of the book of Enoch do mention “demons”, they are not the demons as we equate them to be today. Which are fictional creatures made up by Christians.

            1. Amber Fry's Avatar Amber Fry

              That isn't exactly inventing, just a revising of what was.

            2. John Condron's Avatar John Condron

              All of these are fictional creatures made up by christians, Parson Golden. Though more correctly, many of them are borrowed from earlier traditions.

      Christians did bring us plenty like the first complete atomic theory and the theory of gravity. While genius atheists that were boiling out of universities never could make it beyond a paper airplane, it took two uneducated Christian boys from ohio to invent flight in their spare time.

      However, Christians didn't write the book of Enoch, it showed up before they did. That said, I suppose future Christians could invent time travel, go back in time and write the book of Enoch. Not likely but with God, all things are possible.

      1. John Condron's Avatar John Condron

        Actually, ServantOfJudgement, the concept of the atom that Western scientists accepted in broad outline from the 1600s until about 1900 originated with Greek philosophers in the 5th century BCE -- not from christians.

        It IS true, though, that English chemist and physicist John Dalton the atomic philosophy of the Greeks into a scientific theory between 1803 and 1808.

        Also, the two christian boys from Ohio did not invent flight. The history of aviation extends for more than two thousand years, from the earliest forms of aviation such as kites and attempts at tower jumping. Kite flying in China dates back to several hundred years BC and slowly spread around the world. It is thought to be the earliest example of man-made flight.

        1. ServantOfJudgement's Avatar ServantOfJudgement

          Yea I know John, they(people) actually made many attempts at flight. Some produced lift of the aircraft but they weren't able to steer the craft and all crashed, like an untethered kyte or paper airplane is guaranteed to do.

          I'll bet FFA would agree that an aircraft that's guaranteed to crash isn't flight. Such a craft is really just fancy falling.

  1. Robert E. Polston's Avatar Robert E. Polston

    Dear Brothers and Sisters,

    It is clear to me that ignorance is a terrible burden to bare! Keeping yourself stupid and working hard to help others join you is not the command that Christ has offered to us. Let the truth ring forth, let everyone express their feelings and thoughts, and if you find there is a need to provide support, information, or understanding, do so freely and lovingly. Making yourself judge, jury, and executioner is NOT what people who love are called to do. I continually am amazed at how far some folks can go to be offended and hurt by nothingness. Get a grip, grow up, find your own path and follow it, let others to do the same and give them your hearts and love when you can. Stop trying to play God, I am sure he has a better means of critiquing all of us when it comes right down to it. Share love and acceptance and stop trying to set up one against the other for your own purpose. No matter how far apart we grow, we are still more alike and in need of one another than any of us seem to be aware. Love is love, be part of that if you have the energy and want to do something for God.

    Love, Bob

    1. Lillie B. Walls's Avatar Lillie B. Walls

      Amen - Amen - Amen..Love is an individual emotion that everyone should be experiencing and spreading. I believe in freedom of expression and yes I consider myself a follower of Jesus the Christ. However, I don't have a heaven or hell to send anyone to. Everyone has a choice..I believe wholeheartedly that when it comes to our choice to choose we all will have a little correct and a lot wrong...! So why argue? Do you..look at the show or don't, cancel subscription or don't but as for me...I plan to stay in my own lane. Have a blessed and safe day. 🥰

    Right! Amazon, one of the biggest and most successful companies on the planet "didn't know the outrage they'd be courting."

    They are counting on the outrage... and poorly educated Xians are stepping right up to the plate to promote their new program, and by extension, their platform.

    Personally, this is the first I've heard of this program... but I will be tuning in for every episode! Good job, Amazon Prime!

    Cancel culture! Isn’t that what everyone was complaining about a year or two ago? There are thousands of shows on Prime so why not simply not watch this one? It’s not as though they force you to watch it. I’m sure Prime did their homework and have anticipated this response. I think it’s funny that some Christians are so worried about individual expression. Not everyone believes in God, Satan, Heaven, or Hell. Deal with it. It’s not their responsibility to pass judgement.

    What is interesting to me is that we all have to be sensitive and offend anyone but I guess it is OK to offend Christians. Certainly I don't expect a show featuring Allah.

      The 4th of the 7 Tenets of my faith states that "The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo one's own."

        The 7 Tenets is a set I feel everyone of any and non faith should read through, at least once. Our own existences should be revered and celebrated, not feared or guilted.

    If it offends so much then by all means exercise your free will to cancel your Amazon Prime, and then tend to your own backyard as it were. We Christians need to come to the understanding that we should not cram our beliefs down throats. One can lead by example, yes?

      The ten or twelve members of American Family Association's "One Million Moms" website launched a petition in 2015 calling for Fox to halt its plans to air "Lucifer" in 2016. Even though the program had not yet aired, they claimed that the program "mischaracterizes" Satan and "mocks the Bible."

      I'm sure Rupert Murdoch laughed all the way to the bank about that "pushback."

    What makes me want to dump Prime? They are now showing ads during shows. I pay for streaming to get away from networks that are commercialized. By accepting money from sponsors they will be influenced to edit content. I'm thinking Amazon already makes a lot of money, but by now accepting sponsor money they are squeezing more for their bottom line. But, this is good news for these 'Christians' that oppose this particular animation. If viewership is down then sponsors will not pay and if the money isn't there the show will be cancelled.

      I agree with you, Alexander Arends, but have to quibble on two points:

      • First, you imply that it is not OK to offend Christians. It most certainly IS OK to offend Christians or anyone else. You have a right to feel offended; but that does not mitigate my right to say things that offend you.
      • Second, the right to object by canceling one's subscription is not a God-given right. The god of the bible grants no such right. In fact, he got pretty offended when Adam and Eve did exactly that. Didn't he?
      1. ServantOfJudgement's Avatar ServantOfJudgement

        Not so John

        God has granted Man free will. Adam and Eve were not hindered in the slightest when they disobeyed God. They simply ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. We know when we do something without hindrance we've done it freely. What a kind and generous creator we all have to give us such power as free will.

        Alexanders statement remains flawlessly accurate.

    As all supernatural based religions are nothing more, or nothing less, than attempts to personify nature (nature, which is an alias for God) demons ( whatever they’re supposed to look like) make it possible to blame the image one has as a demon, rather than completing a degree in psychology (at a secular college) so that one’s able, to know one’s self.

      On May 9, 1961, Newton N. Minow, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, referred to commercial television as a "vast wasteland." He characterized programming as "a procession of game shows, formula comedies about totally unbelievable families, blood and thunder, mayhem, violence, sadism, murder, western bad men, western good men, private eyes, gangsters, more violence, and cartoons. And endlessly, commercials — many screaming, cajoling, and offending. And most of all, boredom."

      In other words, informed people have always known "how this garbage ever gets on TV to begin with." It's there on purpose, because it is what people want to watch. It is what sells advertising.

      Being LGBTQ+ is not being a "mental case", nor is it 'indoctrinating" anyone. The church forcing kids into praying 10 times a day, and going to church 3 times a week and going to church camps, indoctrinates. In fact, that's one of the processes of brainwashing.

      And no, it isn't the ""gay pride" movement that is engaging in indoctrination. That would be the churches, that have long understood that they have to get them young or not at all (see for example, Proverbs 22:6).

        As it turns out John, all peoples of the earth agree with God's wisdom contained in the bible verse you quoted. That's why kids don't start school when they're 17.

        Indeed, governments punish parents that don't put their kids in school at an early age. I've read that here in the US we're trying to get kids in school sooner than 5 years old with government funded preschool.

        If you don't like that proverbs verse you quoted, take your argument to the US Department of Education because they definitely like that Bible verse and demand it of all 50 states.

        Let's not bash God's wisdom when we demand the same of our own. Let's be reasonable.

They are not cancelling the show, they are cancelling their own accounts, in short they are staging a boycott. Now if Amazon Prime wants to keep the show then thats up to them and they most likely will lose some customers. Now if thats enough to hit their bottom line then again its up to them. But nobody is telling you that you cant watch the show if you want.

    Here is an example of an upcoming nuclear war if Hollywood tries to do this as this will make whats going on with Amazon Prime look like a gentle spring breeze. There are two people in Hollywood right now that are rewriting the whole story to "The Wizard of Oz" (and the wiz where it was made up of an entirely different cast completely bombed) and "Its a wonderful life" a christmas classic. If you think there is not going to be a major battle when this is tried, then you dont know very much.

    This blog does an outstanding approach to starting the conversation. Since we have different ways of life that are members; I think that as a spiritual eclectic person with a different perspective of the situation.. everyone here who joined including myself, should be offended. Reason being.. why would Christians have a problem with a cartoon that shows a different perspective on the spiritual realm. This is one of those moments where we see the difference between peace and sabatoge. If they're going after a cartoon what's next

    It's interesting how so many people claiming to be Christians act in complete opposite of what Christ said to do. Turn the other cheek maybe? I mean, I thought Duck Dynasty should have been canceled but I didn't threaten to give up cable over it. I just didn't watch it.

    Hey, it's their money but also their loss when they want to order something next day delivered and can't decide where to get it from if not Amazon.

    I'm wondering how many of these fine people researched the religious views of the Amazon Prime before they subscribed in the first place. I'm very sure that there is quite a bit of shows and movies that would be offensive to their Christian sensibilities. I'm not a subscriber to either Amazon Prime or religion so it doesn't bother me.

    Why is everyone getting an upset over this video. If your faith is strong you ignore it. Evangelicals think trump is a gift from God.

    1. Eric Laspe's Avatar Eric Laspe

      It’s interesting that God would send us someone who encourages violence against our countrymen, lies an average of 20 times per day, defames and threatens the sex worker he sexually assaulted, and advises his friends to also “grab ‘em by the pussy.” Thank you, Jesus, for this godly man. What would you have us do with him? Make him the first Supreme Dictator of America and let him stomp all over the Constitution you say? Makes perfect sense!

    So I guess none of these people canceling their Prime TV subscription are watching anything on Netflix either. After all there's a series called Lucifer on that network, I'm on the 6th season by the way.

  1. Amber Fry's Avatar Amber Fry

    It's a show... an animated one at that. If you don't like that, don't watch it. It isn't something I personally care for or intend to watch... then again with the cancellations perhaps it will change Prime to be even more free to do as they and the majority of the remaining clients like. It's too popular of a thing to be too terribly hurt by evangelical pull out. I doubt they were a large part of the audience anyway.

    Amazing how it's only cancel culture when they don't like it. I don't sit around watching the Chosen, I just choose to watch something else. Fine, take your ball and go home, then. I watched Hazbin Hotel long before this and can appreciate creativity and satire. Good on the creators for getting to the big leagues.

    Have none of the folks protesting the show on Twitter considered the Streisand Effect? I had never heard of this show until the stink they raised caused this article to appear in my inbox. Now, I’ve watched the trailer and I I’m interested in seeing the show. I love controversial stuff, as do many. And something “taboo”? Even better.

    Controversy improves viewership. Duh. If you want to put out a fire, start by not giving it your breath.

    They are welcome to cancel subscriptions as they wish, for any reason or no reason. I think it’s a bit oversensitive, but still their choice.

    This is actually hilarious. Boycott, Schmoycott. There are not enough Christians in North America to have any effect on Amazon's profits or their business model. If you don't like a product, don't buy it. If you don't like a show, don't watch it. But please stop trying to impose your religious preferences on the entire world.

  1. Bridget Kielas-Fecyk's Avatar Bridget Kielas-Fecyk

    LOL Let them cancel their Prime then. The rest of us will still watch it. They cannot control what people watch on their video feeds. It's bad ENOUGH they're trying to ram through laws trying to control what people are, and are not, allowed to read, and what books they're allowed to own.

  1. ServantOfJudgement's Avatar ServantOfJudgement

    No Christians, no. You don't like a show then don't watch it. You don't like a network for offering a show, leave the network. If it bothers you enough, tell the network why you left. If that bothers the network, they'll change. If it doesn't they won't, no big deal. Don't complain about it, just do it.

    Most Christian shows are as dull as our president, I mean dull. I get it. There are already Christian TV networks, everything is in place. Start making your own shows that aren't boring and preachy. Don't like that option, turn off the box and read a book.

    If I wanted to make money, I would produce something that would make some group, any large group, angry, make sure it gets a lot of press, and fan the flames of controversy. That is what the media does every day. There are a lot of weak minded (and by that I mean lazy) among us and all of us (ALL of us) fall victim to media controversy at one time or another. Why? Because it is too exhausting to follow, analyze and take a stand on every single piece of media available.

    I like to know what is out there, but would not necessarily view it, approve of it OR condemn it. I think those that are offended and wish to cancel their Prime subscription should do so if it makes them feel better. They can express their outrage in that manner. They can also NOT cancel their subscription and just add that show to their list of things to NOT watch. Certainly, Prime Video is full of content that I would restrict for a young child and there are settings to put in place to do just that.

    Exiled from Heaven and Hell, Aziraphale and Crowley are friends in Good Omens, also on Prime Video. A demon and an angel - exiled and friends. I like that show and I don't consider it offensive. I'm sure that some people do. Did they cancel their subscription because of that show? I never heard that anyone did that.

    Universal life Church a place to develop understanding and respect for other beliefs not acrimony . I don’t do business with Amazon because of the way they collect data and how they use it and how they fail to secure it. Good and evil exist. Good is something you have to work for but evil comes for you Not with fangs and claws barred but with half truths and temptations and false promises and maybe a cartoon. So watch or don’t but remember “ keep your friends close and your enemies closer” All religions at one time have been usurped by individuals who have used it to gain power and profit over its followers. Just because an individual is corrupt doesn’t make all who believe in the core tenements also corrupt. Free speech ( even stupid speech) is the only way to reach the truth. Don’t confuse hate speech with free speech. I respect your right to believe any dumb *** thing you want but don’t hate me for not agreeing. Convince me don’t condemn me.

  1. William Lewis Vass's Avatar William Lewis Vass

    I have the perfect solution to this issue. If you don't like the show then simply don't watch it. All this hostility against a cartoon is ridiculous. Is pounding the pulpit and going off on a rant about the devil and hell not bringing in the income level you're used to. Fear no longer drives people's spending habits as it has in the past. You should probably get over the battle with Amazon Prime because they are not courting the christian community. In the words of Elsa, in the animated movie Frozen, let it go.

  1. Jeffrey Wade Johnson's Avatar Jeffrey Wade Johnson

    Some are extreme, and some are valid. People say that each person should have the right to watch it. Do they literally mean that? Or do they mean that it should be shoved down people's throats? Because I really do think that freedom of conscience should be paramount for ALL people, as God intended. People should have the right to cancel their subscriptions, and should have equal right to post their honest reviews of what they think about it as well. Some Christians don't really want equality or religious liberty. They want dominance. Some anti-christians don't want equality as they profess. They really want dominance. Freedom isn't freedom if your freedom robs someone else of their freedom. All of this fighting over dominance is going to land one way or the other someday with winning that dominant power, then at that point, even if a Christian belief becomes the dominant power, even many Christians will end up losing their religious liberties because they don't believe exactly the same as the dominating force. Sadly, it looks as though this is where we are heading.

    My family are Christians but we also taught our children not to believe everything you see on TV and what they read Newspaper and magazines. We told them they stretch the truth for entertainment. We told our children and now our Grandchildren they want you to yell and scream and holler play. So they can say they got your goat. That's why we let GOD punish them when it is their time not ours. So sit and watch other shows and enjoy your life and don't worry about Satan. Because that is what he wants.

    It's as much Cancel Culture as what right-wing Republican "Christians" accuse the left of being. Look at all the Snowflakes on the right and their objections to the billionaire Democrat, Miss Swift. This has little to do with "canceling their own accounts" and more to do with with their Christofascism. I think a lot of German Christians (real ones) would have wished they would have been less nice to the fascists who took over their country back in the late 1930s. If you don't think so, watch and learn. Same bunch that burned people at the stake.
