Mike Tyson is speaking out against Hulu after accusing the streaming giant of stealing his story for an upcoming documentary titled "Mike."
The eight-episode series is set to premiere on August 25 and traces the ups and downs of the legendary boxer's career and life.
But Tyson isn't signing on to the project.
Tweeting, "Hulu stole my story.
They are Goliath and I am David. Heads will turn for it."
Tyson then posted abusive tweets towards the platform.
The show's executive producer, Steven Rogers, said Tyson could not be a part of it due to a "rights issue".
The former heavyweight champion issued a statement:
[that] a flat lie. My right to life option expired years ago. Neither Hulu nor any of their superserious teams tried to engage in any conversation with this black man.
In their eyes I'm still just a N---R in the auction block, ready to be sold for their profit regardless of my price or that of my family.
They say this story is the discovery of a black man. It's like exploiting a black man.
Hulu seems to have hired black sacrificial lambs to cover their tracks because the frontman for their backdoor robbery is sinister.
I will always remember this blatant disregard for my dignity.
Tyson is getting a lot of support from his fans on social media.
