Iron Mike is punching back at Hulu. Hulu announced a straight-to-series order for Iron Mike, a Mike Tyson biopic series. The boxing champ took to Instagram to slam the upcoming series.

“Hulu’s announcement to do an unauthorized mini-series of the Tyson story without compensation, although unfortunate, isn’t surprising,” he wrote.

“This announcement on the heels of social disparities in our country is a prime example of how Hulu’s corporate greed led to this tone-deaf cultural misappropriation of the Tyson life story. To make this announcement during Black History Month only confirms Hulu’s concern for dollars over respect for black story rights. Hollywood needs to be more sensitive to black experiences especially after all that has transpired in 2020.”

Mike also made sure to post his message on his IG story:

The former heavyweight champ says that he is working on his own project.

“The real Mike Tyson authorized story is in development and will be announced in coming days. Hulu to announce stealing a black athletes story during Black History month couldn’t be more inappropriate or tone deaf. #boycotthulu #corporategreed” his post concludes.

As much as I’d like to Boycott a streaming platform, I need to make sure I have access to Hulu just in case I need to re-watch Palm Springs.

Iron Mike should know you can’t mess with someone’s content library.
