Tonya Harding Threatens to Walk Out of Tense Piers Morgan Interview

Timothée Chalamet's Reaction to Seeing Tonya Harding at the Golden Globes Will Make You LOL

"I can skate.'" She continues, "They were talking about skating and saying, 'Well, maybe somebody should be taken out so then, you know, she can make it"...

While doing press for her acclaimed biopic I, Toyna, Tonya Harding has touted herself as a victim of abuse in a situation much more nuanced than the media portrayed it back in 1994.

Morgan, however, was just getting started and refused to subscribe to the narrative that Harding was the true victim, as the film, which delves heavily into her abusive relationships with her mother and ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, contends. "She's a pariah in our sport and she shouldn't be forgiven for basically, possibly having the opportunity of ruining somebody's life".

But others were prepared to defend Harding, pointing out she did not carry out the attack on Kerrigan and noting she too had suffered at the hands of abusive men.

"You weren't letting me finish", Harding argued.

The former Olympian appeared on Good Morning Britain via satellite on Tuesday and was riled up by the controversial journalist about the infamous 1994 attack on her rival Nancy Kerrigan.

But for Harding, things didn't entirely go as planned during an interview via satellite on "Good Morning Britain" Tuesday with pot-stirrer Piers Morgan, whose line of questioning nearly made her cut the appearance short. "It's an extraordinary movie and I'm so proud of it".

After taking a moment to respond, Harding then threatened to end the interview.

"You didn't have any knowledge at all, it was pure coincidence?" he pressed. "She's got her life, I've got my life".

Hollywood elites claim time is up when it comes to inappropriate behavior in the work place, but they cheered a woman at Sunday's Golden Globes award show who played a role in her opponent being kneecapped.

Allison Janney won for her portrayal of Hardings mother LaVona Golden.
