Mike Tyson Says Hulu ‘stole’ His Life Story and Compares It to a ‘slave Master’!
Mike Tyson has once more voiced his disapproval of the forthcoming biographical series on Hulu that is being made on his life.
The individual who used to compete as a heavyweight professional boxer has made it clear that he does not approve of “Mike,” claiming that the streamer “stole” his life narrative.
On Saturday, Tyson took to Instagram to express his frustrations about Hulu and the series. He shared two photos, each of which had harsh remarks directed toward the streamer.
In the first post, Dana White, the current president of the most prestigious mixed martial arts company known as Ultimate Fighting Championship, is praised.
Tyson claims that Hulu tried to pay White — and possibly UFC — to promote “Mike,” but White turned down the offer because he “honors friendship.”
Tyson’s allegations are unsubstantiated. Tyson refers to his life as the “slave master take over scenario” that is shown in the series.
“Hulu tried to frantically pay my brother Dana White millions without providing me a single $1 to promote their slave master take over a story about my life,” Tyson wrote in his essay. “My life was used as a plot device to sell a fiction about a slave master taking over a company.”
Because he values friendship and conducts himself with respect toward others, he declined the offer. I’ll never forget what he did for me just like I’ll never forget what Hulu robbed from me.”
Almost immediately after that, Tyson published a second article in which he criticized Hulu, stating, “Don’t let Hulu fool you. Their account of my life is incorrect, as far as I am concerned. It is not the year 1822.
It’s 2022. They took my life narrative without paying me, and I have no idea where it is. I’m just a n****r that the bosses at Hulu can put up for auction, as far as they’re concerned.
Tyson’s criticism of the production is not new, by any stretch of the imagination. In February of 2021, shortly after Hulu gave the series its go-ahead, Tyson expressed his disagreement with the decision.
“This announcement on the heels of social disparities in our country is a prime example of how Hulu’s corporate greed led to this tone-deaf cultural misappropriation of the Tyson life story,” said Tyson in a statement at the time.

In the film “Mike,” Trevante Rhodes plays Mike Tyson, and the story follows the life of the real-life figure from his childhood through his notable tenure as a professional boxer and the succession of controversies that unraveled following his athletic retirement.
Steven Rogers, who wrote the screenplay for “I, Tonya,” created “Mike” and executive produced it. Alongside Claire Brown, Karin Gist acts as the showrunner and executive producer for the television program that is under her The Gist of It banner. 20th Century Television is the source of the name “Mike.”
On August 25, Hulu will make available for streaming the first two episodes of the series eight-episode season.
Mike Tyson agreed to serve as an executive producer on a separate limited series on his life in the weeks and months following Hulu’s decision to give “Mike” the go-ahead, and Jamie Foxx was in talks to play the boxer in the series.
However, the company has not been able to find a network, which has resulted in a standstill in progress during the past few months.
Mike Tyson’s Daughter is Killed in a Hanging Accident
Exodus Tyson, the 4-year-old daughter of former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, died Monday in a Phoenix hospital after a “tragic accident” on a home treadmill, according to authorities.
Exodus was on life support after she accidentally strangled herself with a treadmill cable in her central Phoenix home. She died about 11:45 a.m., according to ABC News station KNXV-TV, citing police Sgt. Andy Hill.
“She was playing on this treadmill in some way, and there’s a cord that hangs under the console; it’s kind of a loop,” Hill explained. “She either slid or stuck her head in the loop, but it functioned like a noose, and she was definitely unable to break herself free.”
KNXV-TV said that the ex-champ arrived at the hospital Monday wearing a white button-up shirt and black jeans and frowning as he walked in.
Tyson, 42, had been in Las Vegas but rushed to Phoenix immediately after learning of the accident, according to Hill.
“The Tyson family would like to express our profound gratitude for all of your prayers and support, and we respectfully request that we be allowed our privacy during this sad time,” the boxer said in a statement. “There are no words to convey our beloved Exodus’ heartbreaking loss.”
Monday, Exodus’ 7-year-old brother discovered her and informed their mother, who was in another room. She disconnected Exodus, dialed 911, and attempted to resuscitate her.
According to a Phoenix police statement, the event occurred when the child’s mother was cleaning the house and the toddler was playing in a playroom.
When the 34-year-old mother sent her son to see what Exodus was up to, the youngster discovered her “in difficulty,” according to the police statement.
He contacted his mother, who discovered her on a treadmill with a cable tied to the exercise machine wrapped around her neck, according to authorities.
According to police, the child’s mother went into the room, unhooked her from the line, dialed 911, and then began CPR.
The girl was unresponsive when police came, so they took over from the mom administering CPR. Firefighters came shortly later and replaced the cops administering CPR, according to the police.
The kid was then brought to St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, where she died.
According to police, based on the preliminary investigation, which included information from responding officers, conversations with the mother and boy, and a preliminary study of the site, this appears to be “a terrible accident.”
According to Phoenix Fire Department officials, the woman who called 911 shortly after 10:30 a.m. Monday initially reported electrocution from a treadmill cord, but then modified her narrative to indicate there was a hanging.
