The boss of Tesla, who does not carry his Amazon rival in his heart, made it known on Twitter that he had little taste for the series which has just started.
We know the shock wave that a tweet from Elon Musk can cause. Even when it comes to “jokes”, like when he announced to buy Manchester United. The whimsical and provocative billionaire split a short message on Tuesday to discuss The Rings of Power, the series produced by Amazon Prime Video. And so by his rival in the race for the stars, Jeff Bezos. “Tolkien is turning in his grave“Writes Elon Musk in a message liked 250,000 times.
Rivalry of egos
We cannot give the man who was briefly adviser to Donald Trump at the White House entirely wrong. For reasons of right of adaptation, which the specialist and professor of literature Vincent Ferré detailed to us, the creators of the series John D. Payne and Patrick McKay could only access a thin material signed Tolkien. And therefore had to imagine the rest, with more or less happiness. “The series seeks to appeal to fans of Peter Jackson, fans of fantasy series, while not shocking Tolkien readers too much…”analyzed Vincent Ferré.
“Almost all of the male characters are either cowards, dummies, or both. Only Galadriel is brave, smart and kind“, tweeted in the process the richest man in the world, evoking the female character of the warrior and vengeful elf. Elon Musk, who lifts cast iron and has practiced martial arts in the past, visibly regrets the lack of virility and panache of the male characters in the series.
Wasn’t he also trying to reach his best enemy Jeff Bezos? The two tycoons do not like each other. Personality, lifestyles, everything opposes them. “Elon Musk has a schoolboy side. He’s a hothead, genius and a little crazy. Jeff Bezos is the serious and calm type., analyzed relatives of the two men. Blue Origin, created in 2000 by Jeff Bezos, and SpaceX, created in 2002 by Elon Musk, are in head-to-head competition to realize their space ambitions.
