Mike Tyson Slams “Slave Master” Hulu Series For “Stealing” Life Story
Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has accused an unauthorized television drama of stealing his life story, comparing the streaming platform behind the upcoming series to a “slave master.” “Mike,” which premieres on US streamer Hulu August 25, is a scripted drama that re-enacts moments from the controversial fighter’s life, from his early childhood and through his 1992 rape conviction.
“Hulu is the streaming version of the slave master. They stole my story and didn’t pay me,” wrote Tyson on Instagram.
He added: “I don’t support their story about my life. It’s not 1822. It’s 2022. They stole my life story and didn’t pay me.”
“To Hulu executives I’m just a n****r they can sell on the auction block,” he wrote, using asterisks in place of letters.
Hulu, which is only available in the United States, is majority-owned by Disney.
