Elon Musk slammed Amazon Studios’ new “The Lord of the Rings” show, according to his latest tweets.

“Tolkien is turning in his grave,” the richest man in the world said Monday. 

In another tweet, Musk added that he disliked the show’s male characters in particular.

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

Galadriel is one of the female stars of the show.  

Amazon has allocated $1 billion to “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” series inspired by the world of J.R.R. Tolkien, and former firm executives told Business Insider the company would use the show to determine if Amazon Studios is a worthwhile venture for them. 

The show premiered on Friday, and 25 million people tuned in to the first two episodes. Critics also gave the show largely positive reviews, setting up Amazon for success.  

“The Rings of Power” takes place 3,000 years before the Peter Jackson “The Lord of the Rings” films, and Jeff Bezos was personally involved in bringing the show to Amazon, according to Variety
