Elon Musk didn’t like the Rings of Power and destroyed them on Twitter

The negative reviews for The Rings of Power are reaching a level that Amazon may not have expected. If it wasn’t enough for the company to be bombarded with testimonials from thousands of angry users, now Elon Musk has jumped on the bandwagon. The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX took to Twitter to criticize a series of safety articles from The Lord of the Rings.

Tolkien returns to the grave. These were the harsh words with which Elon Musk launched his attack on the European Commission’s “Rings of Power”. However, his comments did not end there. The mogul also said, “Almost all male characters at the moment are cowards, idiots, or both. Only Galadriel is brave, intelligent and sympathetic.

As we all know, the words of Elon Musk always attract a lot of attention for any reason, and this time was no exception. One only has to look at the replies to the tweet to see that Rings of Power critics have welcomed the mogul with open arms.

Now, here’s a nuance to consider: Elon Musk has been very critical of almost every product and service related to Jeff Bezos’ construction industry. It’s well known that Musk and the Amazon founder don’t have a very good relationship, and on several occasions they sent each other rather provocative messages. So it’s possible that Musk himself was even more motivated to attack… Rings of Power because of his rivalry with Bezos.

Is he right in his harsh remarks against the series? Well, it depends on how you look at it. It’s true that The Rings of Power, at least in the first two episodes, took a lot of creative liberties, some of which… contradict J.R.R.R. Tolkien’s books. It is clear that for any follower of the British writer such situations are inappropriate, especially since the production was advertised as “based” on Tolkien’s work.

However, it should be remembered that Rings of Power, like any other flagship content on the video streaming platform, is aimed at reaching the widest possible audience. To do this, she must make changes that will not always be welcomed by those familiar with the universe. This will continue with any series/movie based on or inspired by a work of literature.

But it’s one thing to be critical and respectful of your point of view, and quite another to spend most of your time throwing haters anywhere on the internet. And that includes the harassment some of the Ring of Power cast members are already suffering from on their social media profiles. There are limits, and at present many of them have been exceeded.

Always remember the following points: entertainment products, no matter how much we admire, do not belong to us. Rights and production managers can do as they see fit without first consulting the fandom office. Like it or not, this is how the industry works…
