Mike Tyson accuses Hulu of stealing his story

Mike Tyson has accused Hulu of stealing his story to produce “Mike,” an upcoming limited series about his life and career.

The boxing legend took aim at the streaming giant in a series of scathing social media posts expressing his displeasure with the show and Hulu’s handling of production. Set to debut on August 25, the eight-episode series “explores the tumultuous ups and downs of Tyson’s boxing career and personal life – from being a beloved global athlete to being pariah and back again” and stars Trevante Rhodes.

Tyson, 56, shared an Instagram post on Saturday with a caption calling Hulu “the streaming version of slave master” and claiming the company “stole my story and didn’t pay me.” He then sent a message to his supporters stressing that he did not endorse any aspect of the production, which Hulu also described as an “unauthorized and unhindered look at the life of Mike Tyson.”
