The release of two fantasy dramas and prequel to two of the biggest to be specific, has created chatter everywhere around us. Everyone has an opinion on either or both and they are varied. The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power, that debuted on September 2, on Prime Video with 2 episodes has so far impressed everyone with its sheer grandeur. Yes, there are the ones who haven’t liked but their number is less in comparison to who have. But joining the minority is now is Elon Musk who is clearly hating the show.

The Rings Of Power is set in the second age of JRR Tolkien’s Middle Earth. The show traces the landscape and the rise of Sauron. While the magnificence and enthralled much of its viewers, Elon Musk feels Tolkien might be turning in his grave. Read on to know everything you should about the same.
Taking to his Twitter handle to slam The Rings Of Power, probably to take a dig at Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk wrote, “Tolkien is turning in his grave.” The Tesla CEO and founder added Twitter, “Almost every male character so far is a coward, a jerk or both. Only Galadriel is brave, smart and nice.”
