Elon Musk JRR Tolkien, author of the “Lord of the Rings” series, said Monday that he’s “rolling over in his grave” on Amazon Prime’s new adaptation of the fantasy book “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.”
“Almost every male character by far is a coward, an idiot, or both,” the Tesla CEO wrote in a tweet. “Gladrill alone is brave, smart, and kind.”
Galadriel is a female dwarf warrior and leader of the Amazon series and a The character created by Tolkien.
He later added, “Those who claim any criticism of the Rings of Power mean you are a racist pretend to be racists outcast.”
Of criticism from some fans that the selection of non-white characters was not right for Tolkien’s world, Hollywood Reporter contributor Richard Newby argued, “The most common thing is that Tolkien did not include people of color in his stories. Not only is this incorrect, as he is described Artisans described him as having “brown” skin, but Tolkien often made no reference to describing skin color.”
Morfydd Clark, the actress who plays Galadriel, has defended her character turned warrior more than she portrayed in “The Lord of the Rings.”
“I would say that her calmness [in “Lord of the Rings”] She told Variety, “I don’t think you get to that level of wisdom without going through things. It actually talks about wisdom, there’s a loss of innocence, which is really good for me to find in science. Because, like, how young are you when you’re still Are you thousands of years old? So he was thinking of any innocence you had lost during this time.”
“The Rings of Power” is a prequel series for “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings”.
Musk is an avid reader of science fiction/fantasy and is also frequently critical of fellow billionaire and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos when he can.
The two also run rival space exploration companies SpaceX and Blue Origin.
“The Rings of Power” is the most expensive TV series ever produced, and boasted its premiere on Amazon with more than 25 million viewers worldwide last Thursday.
Musk’s tweets echoed similar criticism on Twitter, but she also had her critics.
“Elon Musk does not come to me for tips on how to fail to buy Twitter, nor do I go to him for film, TV or literary criticism,” “Good Omens” writer Neil Gaiman – who has nothing to do with a show – tweeted after asking a fan about Musk notes.
