Mike Tyson, the boxing legend, has branded Hulu “the streaming version of the slave master” for apparently stealing his life story for money without paying him.

Tyson reaffirmed his opposition to Hulu’s forthcoming limited series cataloguing his life both inside and outside of the ring in a series of statements published on his social media accounts on Saturday. “Mike” will premiere on August 25th.

“Hulu tried to desperately pay my brother @danawhite millions without offering me a dollar to  promote their slave master take over story about my life. He turned it down because he honors friendship and treating people with dignity.  I’ll never forget what he did for me just like I’ll never forget what Hulu stole from me.”


“Hulu is the streaming version of the slave master. They stole my story and didn’t pay me.”


This isn’t Tyson’s first time speaking out against “Mike.” Tyson fought back against the project after Hulu first ordered it in February 2021.

Tyson revealed in March 2021 that his own “authorized story” starring Jamie Foxx as himself. Producers include director Martin Scorsese and actor Jamie Foxx. “I have been looking to tell my story for quite some time,” he explained.
