Elon Musk Criticizes Amazon’s ‘Rings of Power’


According To Elon Musk, Tolkien Would Be “Turning In His Grave” Over Amazon's “Rings of .”

Elon Musk criticized Galadriel, the only “brave” character in Amazon's new streaming series, for her lack of bravery.

On Monday, Elon Musk stated that J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of “The Lord of the Rings” series, is probably rolling over in his grave due to Amazon Prime's new adaptation of the fantasy books “The Lord of The Rings: The Ring Power.”

“Almost every male character so far is a coward, a jerk, or both,” the CEO tweeted. “Only Galadriel is brave, smart, and nice.”

Galadriel is the female lead warrior elf in Tolkien's Amazon series.

He later added, “Those who claim any criticism of Rings of Power means you're racist are outing themselves as closet racists.” 

Some Tolkien have complained that casting non-white actors isn't accurate to Tolkien's universe. In an essay for The Hollywood Reporter, Richard Newby countered these complaints., “The most common refrain is that Tolkien didn't include people of color in his stories. Not only is this untrue, as harfoots are described as having ‘browner' skin, but Tolkien didn't often make a point to describe skin color.”

Morfydd Clark, the actress who plays Galadriel in “The Lord of the Rings” movies, defended her character's depiction as more of a warrior than how she was originally written in the books.

Elon Musk spoke at GOP leader Kevin McCarthy's retreat on the same day Liz Cheney lost her primary election.

“I would say that her serenity [in “Lord of the Rings”] is hard-earned,” she told . “I don't think you get to that level of wisdom without going through things. She actually speaks about, with wisdom, there is a loss of innocence, which was a really good thing for me to find in the lore. Because, like, how young are you when you're still thousands of years old? So it was thinking of what innocence she lost during this time.”

“The Rings of Power” is a prequel series to “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings.” 

Elon Musk is a voracious sci-fi and fantasy reader and a frequent adversary of fellow billionaire Jeff Bezos.

Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are also the CEOs of Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) and Blue Origin, two space exploration firms competing with one another.

“The Rings of Power” is both the most expensive TV series ever made and boasted Amazon's biggest with more than 25 million viewers worldwide last Thursday. 

Musk's tweets echoed similar criticisms on Twitter but also had their detractors.

“Elon Musk doesn't come to me for advice on fail to buy Twitter, and I don't go to him for film, TV, or literature criticism,” “Good Omens,” A fan asked Neil Gaiman, who has no connection to the show, about Musk's remarks on Twitter.
