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 voicing his displeasure with the show and Hulu’s handling of the production. Set to debut on Aug. 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 a pariah and back again” and stars Trevante Rhodes in the title role.

Tyson, 56, shared an Instagram post Saturday with a caption calling Hulu the “streaming version of the slave master” and claimed the company “stole my story and didn’t pay me.” He then sent a message to his supporters emphasizing that he did not support any aspect of the production, which Hulu has also described as “an unauthorized and no-holds-barred look at the life of Mike Tyson.”
