Tyson vs. Hulu
Mike Tyson is taking jabs at the streaming giant Hulu over the production of a limited series called Mike about the former boxer's life. Tyson took to Instagram to vent about the situation and posted, "Hulu tried to desperately pay my brother @danawhite millions without offering me a dollar to promote their slave master take over story about my life. He turned it down because he honors friendship and treating people with dignity. I'll never forget what he did for me just like I'll never forget what Hulu stole from me." The scripted show is set to take an in-depth look at Tyson's life from childhood through his prime boxing years and is slated for an August 25 premiere.
