YouTuber Disparu reports that Prime Video appears to have deleted over 22,000 comments from their The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power trailer.
In a recent video upload, Disparu shares evidence that Prime Video deleted the comments from the trailer.
Shortly into the video, he shares a screenshot revealing the video had over 82,000 comments. He details in the video the screenshot was from about a week ago when the trailer had 300,000 less views than it did at the time he recorded this new video.
As of writing this article, the total comments are 60,791.
Disparu goes on to speculate that Prime Video specifically targeted comments paraphrasing a line that Frodo tells Sam in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
Frodo says, “The Shadow that bred them can only mock, it cannot make: not real new things of its own. I don’t think it gave life to the orcs, it only ruined them and twisted them; and if they are to live at all, they have to live like other living creatures.”
Numerous individuals would response to the trailer writing, “Evil is not able to create anything new, it can only distort and destroy what has been invented or made by the forces of good.” This line would not just been seen in English, but dozens of languages.
