Mike Tyson Fighting Words About His Life

Mike, a limited eight-part Hulu series, is billed as the turbulent true life story of heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson.

Tyson slammed the series on social media, claiming that he was not compensated.

He also blamed the "tone-deaf cultural misappropriation of the Tyson life story" on "Hulu's corporate greed."

Tyson also accused Hulu of trying to “desperately pay” UFC president Dana White millions to promote Mike without offering him a dollar.

Days before Tyson's most recent statements, series creator Steven Rogers explained his stance in a virtual television interview.

Mike, according to showrunner Karin Gist, "is not meant to glorify" the boxer's life, as she told Entertainment Weekly in June.

"We were never attempting to portray Mike Tyson as a hero or a villain."
