Rings of Power is Amazon’s new flagship series and everyone has their own opinion on it. This is the case of Elon Musk, who gave his on Twitter. The billionaire didn’t really appreciate the vision the show offered and doesn’t hesitate to communicate it.
Rings of Power is the show at the moment. Inevitably, many people fired up Prime to hear about the first two episodes and give their opinion. This is the case of Elon Musk, who was not shy about expressing what he thinks on Twitter.
Elon Musk clearly did not like the series. In the first tweet, he states: “Tolkien must be rolling over in his grave.” It’s funny when you know that the series was approved by the Tolkien Estate and that Simon Tolkien, the author’s grandson, worked as a consultant at Amazon. Recall that at one time Peter Jackson’s films were hated by Christopher Tolkien (died in 2020), the son of the writer.

Elon Musk goes even further in his second tweet, stating that “all male characters are either cowards or jerks or both. Only Galadriel is brave, smart and kind. »
Almost every male character is still a coward, a jerk, or both. Only Galadriel is brave, smart and sweet.

The tweet is surprising again. The series features interesting male characters. We can summon the brave elf Arondir, the measured Elrond or the wise King Gil Galad. Dishonesty, similar to misogyny. Also, to avoid such a disastrous analysis, Amazon recently made a drastic decision regarding viewer opinions. Each review is checked by moderators and published after 72 hours. It is true that the series has been subjected to racist and sexist comments for several months now.

Finally, Musk posted a third tweet denouncing the comments on his first tweet, pointing out that they were just bots. A defining moment for the billionaire, as officially it is this aspect that is why he eventually refuses to buy Twitter.
In any case, Rings of Power is synonymous with real success for Amazon, as the series attracted 25 million viewers in less than 24 hours.
