“Tolkien is turning in his grave”

Elon Musk has already given his opinion on the series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and he is not positive, far from it. He tweeted that “Tolkien is turning in his grave” before adding reasons why he finds the show bad.

The new Lord of the Rings series: The Rings of Power is a great success with 25 million viewers the day of its release, but it is apparently not to everyone’s taste. Elon Musk is apparently one of those who don’t like him at all. He does not even hesitate to criticize her openly on social networks.

Alone the first two episodes of the Rings of Power are available on Prime Video, but Elon Musk has already formed his own opinion which he shared on Twitter. According to him, ” Tolkien is turning in his grave “. His tweet obviously did not fail to make the community react. Fan expectations are very high for the Amazon series. Even Jeff Bezos’ son asked his dad not to screw her up.

Elon Musk doesn’t like the male characters in The Rings of Power

Elon Musk then tweeted that: “ so far almost all the male characters are either cowards, assholes or both. Only Galadriel is brave, smart and kind “. Galadriel is the heroine of the Rings of Power. For Tolkien it is one of the greatest elves in Middle-earth.

The first episode first unveils Galadriel’s youth before showing his tireless fight against Sauron. Unlike the other characters, she is convinced that the forces of evil have not disappeared from Middle-earth.

Since its release, the new series on The Lord of the Rings has been the victim of review bombing. This means that she receives a wave of negative reviews for no apparent reason. Internet users criticize, for example, its casting and the fact that it is made up of women and minorities. To counter this phenomenon on its streaming platform, Amazon has decided to suspend all user reviews for 3 days. This gives him time to check if the reviews come from real users, if they are bots or if they are review bombing.
