Mike Tyson has heavily criticized Hulu after it announced it is releasing a limited series titled ‘Iron Mike’ about the boxer’s life.
54-year-old Tyson released a statement on social media calling on fans to boycott the streaming service.
The boxer said the series wasn't authorized by him and that it is a “tone-deaf cultural misappropriation of the Tyson life story”.
Tyson pointed out that the announcement was made during Black History Month.
He believes this “confirms Hulu's concern for dollars over respect for black story rights”.
Tyson said that “The real Mike Tyson authorized story” is in development and an announcement will be made soon.
