Elon Musk is not a fan of Amazon’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ series • ENTER.CO

Of course, the world’s biggest tech troll is not a fan of the Lord of the Rings series. Musk, best known for making purchase promises and then walking away when he can’t keep them, used his social account to claim that “Tolkien would be turning over in his grave,” speaking of the series premiere.

Why did Musk decide to attack the Lord of the Rings series? The Twitter account from the CEO of Tesla is, often, a kind of message without much context that he seeks to provoke the public behind a reaction (because apparently being the richest man on the planet does not give you anything else to do). Fortunately, Musk decided to expand on his comment.

The short answer is that Musk finds it a problem that the men on the show are cowards or jerks. And that Galadriel (literally described by Tolkien himself as the most respected elf in Middle-earth) is brave and kind.

If anything Musk joins the voices that have decided to review bombing the Amazon show. Of course, the people who are attacking the show seem to be primarily focused on how the adaptation isn’t very faithful to the source material (Tolkien’s mythology and books). The arguments range from the motivation of certain characters… to the complaint that there are elves and African-Americans in Middle-earth and Tolkien’s distinctly Aryan universe… hard to tell which side Musk is on.

Hopefully Amazon won’t have to deal with a new batch of Musk-inspired trolls. The platform has already made the determination to delay the reviews of the show the first 72 hours after the premiere of each chapter.

If we can get anything good out of all of this, perhaps it’s The Sandman author Neil Gaiman’s response to Musk.

“Elon Musk doesn’t come to me for advice on how to stop buying Twitter, and I don’t come to him for movie, TV, or literature reviews.”
