Lord of the Rings fans have taken social media by storm in response to a controversial tweet about the beloved franchise. A tweet about the series went viral when a fan shared their opinion that the Lord of the Rings films could not have been made today due to woke culture. Opinion on the matter was split right down the middle.

The tweet says that Aragorn would have been a woman if the movies were made today. It also postulated that Frodo and Sam would have been gay. The anti-wokeness crusader also said that Gandalf would be black, and the cast would have very few white male actors. Frodo started trending as the responses quickly numbered into the thousands.

“This is what they are literally doing with the new LotR series.”

“I see a lot of cowards sneeringly quote-tweeting this post but very few willing to argue the point directly.”

“Yes they can, but Sam and Frodo were not written to be like that. They were written to be characters that loved eachother and after going through so much their relationship got stronger. Tolkien blatantly has stated that their relationship is meant to resemble peak friendship.”

“Good point. Despite all the defects that the movies have, at least this campain to impregnate everything with wokeness and multiculturalism wasn’t so strong 20 years ago. So now we have a barelly acceptable trilogy. Looking at the present, it could be much worse…”

Lord of the Rings was written by J.R.R. Tolkien in 1948. The author would probably be shocked to see so many random people from a completely different cultural era in humanity making their own interpretations of his character. If one thing comes through while examining this discussion, it’s that LOTR fans on both sides of the argument have way too much time on their hands. Everyone will find out how LOTR will look when the new Amazon series comes out.
