Mike Tyson claims Hulu ‘stole’ his life story

Mike Tyson used social media to attack Hulu. He claimed that the streaming platform produced the new biographical series ‘Mike’ without his permission.

The former professional heavyweight boxer also mentions that the service did not pay him for telling his story.

He wrote, ‘Don’t let Hulu fool you. I do not support their stories about my life. It’s 2022, not 1822. They stole my life story and didn’t give me money. To Hulu management, I’m just a person who can sell on the auction house.’

Legendary Athlete Says ‘Hulu Is A Streaming Version Of The Slave Master. They stole my story and they didn’t give me money.’

Tyson’s latest post came after he shared an image praising UFC President Dana White for rejecting the streamer’s offer to promote ‘Mike’.

The 56-year-old sportsman shared a photo of himself with White.

His caption read, ‘Hulu desperately tried to pay my brother Dana White millions of dollars.

“I refused because I respect friendship and treat people with dignity. I will never forget what he did to me, just as I will never forget what Hulu stole from me.’
