  • Netflix apologises after 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina'

The account in question, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which is now filming series 4 of the popular Netflix show, came under fire for making a light-hearted "Bloody Sunday" tweet.

Yesterday (January 10), a social media rep posted photos of the cast covered in fake blood, captioning the tweet "Sunday Bloody Sunday".

After facing major backlash, the streamer had the tweet removed.

The now-deleted Tweet attracted dozens of comments from people who were angered that the show would use one of the darkest moments in Ireland's history as a light-hearted caption, although it was accepted that it was likely ignorance rather than malice which led to the phrase being used.

Making reference to the U2 track Sunday Bloody Sunday, one Twitter user wrote, 'Oh, this is bad'.

Bloody Sunday was the name given to an event that took place in 1920, where a total of 14 people were killed, and as many as 60 were injured after a number of Black and Tans and Auxiliaries opened fire on civilians in Croke Park in Dublin.

'Our tweet was unacceptable and has since been removed'.

Another incident referred to as Bloody Sunday took place in Derry in 1972, when British soldiers shot 26 civilians during a protest march against internment without trial. "We are very sorry for the hurt and distress it caused".
