A few weeks back, Mike Tyson took to Twitter and called out the online streaming platform Hulu. On 25th August, Hulu released MIKE, an eight-episode long show that exploits the life and struggle of the former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. However, only a few weeks prior to the release of MIKE by Hulu, fans boycotted the online platform as Tyson accused the same of stealing his life rights.

In a recent conversation with the news anchor Greta Van Susteren, Tyson opened up about the entire situation involving Hulu. Prior to the interview with News Max TV, Tyson had an encounter with Access Daily. In his opinion, it was a disgusting feeling when people stole his rights and personal life, but he could do nothing about it.

As mentioned earlier, Tyson had recently a conversation with Access Daily where he opened up about his feelings for Hulu and MIKE. At present, the 56-year-old, and former heavyweight champion, is unable to take any sort of legal action against Hulu for “stealing” his rights. Tyson earlier condemned Hulu and labeled their “model of stealing life rights” as something “egregiously greedy”. In his encounter with Access Daily, Tyson said, “It’s just a really disgusting feeling that people here steal your rights, your personal life, and you can do nothing about it. And that’s why I just can’t believe this. It’s just some people who are one time with my friends and I guess they decide to do a story on me.”
