Mike Tyson Praises Dana White For Rejecting Million-Dollar Offer From Hulu

When Hulu's Mike, the upcoming limited series that tells the story of Mike Tyson's life, was announced early last year, the boxing legend publicly condemned the project, calling it a "tone-deaf cultural misappropriation of my life story" at the time.

Even after the creator claimed that he would like it

Mike Tyson still has not changed his opinion regarding his upcoming Hulu documentary.

With the project preparing for its Aug. 25 premiere, the producers recently addressed Tyson's criticisms over the existence of the unauthorized series.

"We actually couldn't talk to him because his life rights were already taken, so that was never on the table. I would hope that if he watches it that he would change his opinion," executive producer Steven Rogers told reporters during the show's virtual Television Critics Association panel on Thursday.

"For me, as a writer, as a storyteller, I don't really like to be reliant on just one source. I really like to do the research and get all these different opinions and then put a story around all of that. I don't like to be beholden to just one person."

The producer's words, however, had no effect on Tyson, as he has once again tweeted against Hulu for creating the documentary.

Tyson praised his "brother" Dana White for rejecting Hulu's million dollar offer to be a part of the documentary.

"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." he tweeted.
