Mike Tyson is not happy with Hulu.
“Mike”, a miniseries based on his life, is scheduled to premiere on the Hulu streaming platform on August 25, and Tyson claims he never gave permission for its production. In a series of tweets, Tyson expressed his disdain and praised UFC President Dana White for refusing to be a part of it.
The series of tweets elicited reactions from many, including UFC star Nate Diaz and WBC chief Mauricio Suleiman.
Praise of UFC President Dana White
Tyson indicated that many of his friends and acquaintances were misled into participating. White, however, was not among them — despite what Tyson said on Friday, he was offered a large amount of cash.
“Hulu Tried to Pay My Brother Dana White Millions Without Offering Me a Dollar to Promote His Slave Master to Capture the Story About My Life,” Tyson wrote on twitter, “He turned it down because he respects friendship and treats people with respect. I will never forget what he did for me like I will never forget what Hulu stole from me.”
