Johnny Weir I Don't Forgive Tonya Harding ... 'Did a Horrible Thing'

Margot Robbie stars as former US figure skater Tonya Harding in I Tonya

"Look, Tonya Harding, she's got a pipe - go get her", he shouted to distract a theater employee in a pre-show gag.

In a new interview with ABC, former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding opened up about the attack on her rival, Nancy Kerrigan, which dominated headlines for weeks in early 1994.

While Harding said she felt sorry for Robbie, she also said she loved the final work from the cast and crew. "She's a pariah in our sport and she shouldn't be forgiven for basically, possibly having the opportunity of ruining somebody's life". "It's an extraordinary movie, I'm so proud of it".

Morgan interrupted, "Maybe it suits you to play the victim, but I think the victim in all this wasn't you, it was Nancy Kerrigan who had her Olympic dream shattered, quite literally, in her leg".

Elsewhere in the clip, Harding reveals that she overheard her ex-husband "talking about stuff" a month or two before the attack on Kerrigan.

She told The Hollywood Reporter: "You're about to be in a comic book film; now here's the worst-case scenario of how big and scary it can get".

"No", she asserted. "I didn't know anything prior".

"I respect you for trying to ask these questions".

Tonya Harding is passed by Nancy Kerrigan during their first practice session in 1994.

Harding said that while she had nothing to do with the malicious plot, she viewed herself as a "pawn" who largely took the fall for the incident, which was carried out by Shane Stant, a man hired by Gillooly and Eckardt.

"You didn't have any knowledge at all, it was a pure coincidence?"

Tonya Harding fought back tears during Sunday's Golden Globes as she received a shout-out from actress Allison Janney, who won an award for playing her mother in the film, I Tonya.
