Mike Tyson Hulu
The former heavyweight champion on Saturday voiced his displeasure over Hulu’s new series “Mike,” which debuts on August 25 and stars Trevante Rhodes, from 2016’s “Moonlight,” as the famed boxer.
“Don’t let Hulu fool you. I don’t support their story about my life,” Tyson’s wrote in an Instagram post. “They stole my life story and didn’t pay me.”
He added, “To Hulu executives I’m just a n****r they can sell on the auction block.”
In a previous post on Instagram Saturday, Tyson alleged that Hulu tried to pay UFC president Dana White to promote the series, but that he refused.
“Mike” is an eight-episode limited series, which “explores the tumultuous ups and downs of Tyson’s boxing career and personal life — from being a beloved global athlete to a pariah and back again,” according to Hulu.
