Mike Tyson is not happy with the Hulu right now.

Last month, Hulu released the trailer for their new series “Mike” based on Tyson’s life that is set to release on August 25th, despite the fact that the boxer has his own project in the works with Jamie Foxx.

On Saturday, Tyson took to Twitter to blast Hulu and accuse them of stealing his story.

Tyson went on to release a statement slamming the show’s executive producer, Steven Rogers, who claimed the boxer couldn’t be involved in the project due to a rights issues.

“Is a flat out lie. My life rights option expired years ago. Hulu nor any of their supercilious team ever tried to engage in any negotiations with this Black man. In their eyes I am still just a n*****r on the auction block ready to be sold for their profit without any regard for my worth or my family.”

The statement continued, “They say this story is an exploration of a Black man. It’s more like an exploitation of a Black man. Hulu thinks their tracks are covered by hiring Black sacrificial lambs to play the part as front men for their backdoor robbery is appalling. I will always remember this blatant disregard of my dignity.”
