MEXICO CITY.- Former boxer Mike Tyson published a message against the Hulu platform for the production of a series inspired by his life, which will be titled Mike.

Tyson used his Instagram account to accuse the streaming content platform of “stealing the story of his life” to develop a series.

“Hulu is the master-slave of streaming platforms. They stole my story and they didn’t pay me.”

“Don’t let Hulu fool you. I don’t support her story about my life. We are not in 1822, we are in 2022. They stole the story of my life and did not pay me, “accused the former boxer.

In a second post, Mike Tyson reported that the platform executives would have offered his friend Dana White millions of dollars to help them with some details about the life of the former boxer during the preparation of the series.

“Hulu desperately tried to pay my brother Dana White millions without offering me a single dollar for them to promote the project about my life on their behalf.

“He turned it down because he honors our friendship and treats people with dignity. I will never forget what he did for me just like I will never forget what he stole Hulu from me,” the former athlete wrote.

With his own example, Mike Tyson accused the streaming platform on Twitter of stealing the stories of celebrities to benefit.

Meanwhile, the project’s executive producer, Karen Gist, told Deadline that the Tyson-inspired project will be in an unauthorized format and that its goal is to “tell an unbiased story and let the audience decide what they think or feel about the character.” .

Regardless of the former boxer’s complaints, the mini-series Mike will be released on the platform on August 25 and will have 8 episodes.
