Mike Tyson Slammed Hulu Over ‘Unauthorized Mini Series’ In an Uncovered Post

Mike Tyson is one of the most successful and polarizing athletes in history. He has lived a life of rags to riches, but the audience is unaware of many other details.

The boxer has had a tough life and prevailed through the difficulties to become one of the most influential figures in the world of boxing.

As such, streaming giant Hulu is releasing a series based on Mike Tyson’s life. But the boxer is not happy with it, and here’s his take on the subject.

Mike Tyson wrote in an Instagram post, “Hulu’s announcement to do an unauthorized mini-series of the Tyson story without compensation, although unfortunate, isn’t surprising..”

He added – “To make this announcement during Black History Month only confirms Hulu’s concern for dollars over respect for black story rights. Hollywood needs to be more sensitive to black experiences, especially after all that has transpired in 2020.”

The teaser for the limited eight-episode Hulu series ‘Mike’ has been released recently. It stars ‘Moonlight’ movie fame Trevante Rhodes as Tyson. It also stars actors like Laura Harrier, Harvey Keitel, Russell Hornsby, and Li Eubanks.  

Surprisingly, ‘Iron Mike’ later deleted the Instagram post. Tyson has not spoken about it much and is quite upset with Hulu. He has mentioned another Mike Tyson series.

Apparently, there is another series in the making that will tell the story of Tyson’s life. The series stars Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx as Mike Tyson. As per the rumors, it has been titled ‘Tyson’.

The actor has been working on the character for quite a long time now. He even posted a picture of himself looking like Tyson. The post goes back to June 2020, and he wrote in the caption, “The transformation begins… “Finding MIKE”.”
