One of the most popular and colorful boxers in the history of the sport is certainly Mike Tyson. If we take into account how much boxing is a sport with a rich history and fantastic champions throughout history, then it is clear that this is not a small matter.
This was also recognized by the American streaming service, which decided to film a mini-series based on the life story of Mike Tyson. It will begin airing on August 25th (the eighth month) and Trevante Rhodes will play Mike Tyson.
Although celebrities are generally honored when someone chooses to honor them like this, that is not the case this time and Tyson has publicly criticized Hulu for the mini-series that will begin airing soon.
Mike Tyson publicly addressed Hulu
"Don't be fooled by Hulu.
I do not support their story about my life. We are not in 1822 but in 2022." "Hey @hulu I’m not a n****r you can sell on the auction block #slaveryisover #fuckhulu" wrote Mike on his Twitter
“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 stole my story.
They’re Goliath and I’m David. Heads will roll for this." "Hulu is the streaming version of slavery. They stole my story and didn't pay me." Hulu’s model of stealing life rights of celebrities is egregiously greedy #headswillroll" "Someone should get fired from Hulu.
Producers were lying to my friends saying I supported the unauthorized series about my life." There's a good chance that many Tyson fans will actually boycott this mini-series and it all smells like a failure on Hulu, which they deserved after all if Tyson is telling the truth.
