Tyson is "not the first one to have a gripe," according to Hornsby, about how the former heavyweight champion is portrayed in the movie.

He added that the production does not glorify or condemn Tyson and went on to defend the biopic.

Tyson reacted on Hulu's "Mike" for the second time earlier this month. Back then he commented for the first time when the biopic was announced.

The retired boxer called the film "tone-deaf cultural misappropriation" at that time and accused Hulu of "corporate avarice."

Hornsby acknowledged that Tyson felt badly about "Mike" from Hulu and admitted that latter went through a lot during his career in 1980s.
