The Rings of Power is Amazon’s new flagship series and everyone has an opinion on it. This is the case of Elon Musk who gave his on Twitter. The billionaire did not really appreciate the vision offered by the show and does not hesitate to let it be known.
The Rings of Power is THE series of the moment. Inevitably, many people have launched Prime to discover the first two episodes and give their opinion. This is the case of Elon Musk, who did not hesitate to say what he thought on Twitter.
Elon Musk apparently didn’t really enjoy the series. In a first tweet, he says: “Tolkien must be rolling in his grave”. Ironic, when we know that the series has been approved by Tolkien Estate and that Simon Tolkien, grandson of the author, worked as a consultant with Amazon. We recall that in their time, the films of Peter Jackson were hated by Christopher Tolkien (deceased in 2020), son of the writer.

Elon Musk goes further in a second tweet, arguing that “All the male characters are either cowards or assholes or both. Only Galadriel is brave, smart, and kind. »
Almost every male character so far is a coward, a jerk or both. Only Galadriel is brave, smart and nice.

Again, the tweet raises an eyebrow. The series features interesting male characters. We can evoke the courageous elf Arondir, the measured Elrond or the wise king Gil Galad. bad faith which unmistakably resembles misogyny. It is moreover to avoid this kind of catastrophic analysis that Amazon recently made a radical decision with regard to the opinions of spectators. Each review is scrutinized by moderators and published 72 hours later. It is true that the series has been the target of racist and sexist comments for several months.

Finally, Musk posted a third tweet in which he denounces the comments of his first tweet, pointing out the fact let it be just bots. A crucial point for the billionaire, since it is officially because of this aspect that he finally refuses to buy Twitter.
In any case, The Rings of Power is synonymous with real success for Amazon, since the series has attracted 25 million viewers in less than 24 hours.
