The petition says that the streaming network has “seriously offended Christians” with the film.

“In the trailer for the 46-minute satire, from YouTube sketch show “Porta dos Fundos,” Jesus (Gregorio Duvivier) and Orlando (Fábio Porchat) walk in on a surprise party thrown by his parents and friends, who try to figure out who his new companion is,” the New York Post reported.

The film has drawn criticism in Brazil, as well. One high profile critic is Eduardo Bolsonaro, the son of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who took to Twitter to slam the production.

Bolsonaro called the film “garbage,” and said, “We are in favor of free speech, but is it worth attacking the faith of 86 percent of the population?”

Netflix has refused to make any comments about the film.

However, the company that produced the film said they value artistic freedom.

“Porta dos Fundos values artistic freedom and humor through satire on the most diverse cultural themes of our society and believes that freedom of expression is an essential construction for a democratic country.”
