Tre could have kept this to himself. Mike was right to throw shade. Mike should have been paid. The least Hulu could have done was hire Mike as a "consultant." This way Hulu could have paid Mike and given him a word on a project about his life—even if wasn't the final and deciding word on the project.

The actor is just that. Who are the executive producers are responsible for the movie? Not the actor.

Mike needs to sue Hulu's disrespectful ass.

This actor seems to fit the part really well.

He did what BeyoncĂ© does, lie & deflect. I’m glad I don’t support liars. How about you check with the source before talking about people checking out your art. Fucking thief!

^^^^ You really have to Bey obsessed to bring Beyonce into this. And that's weird.

Trevante Rhodes is an incredible actor. Incredible. I hope whatever hate or malice Mike Tyson has for the producers of this project, won't transfer over to Trevante. While I don't appreciate the way they handled this, I gotta agree that I'm excited to watch. It's important that an actor remember connect with the individual they're portraying.

They need to pay him. That would be justice. Imagine someone telling your story and you get nothing from it.

I hear you, but it happens all the time. People been making "unauthorized biographies" and profiting from them. I think this actually might be the third or 4th one about him. Sadly, it's nothing he can really do...except tell his own story.
