Tonya Harding Nearly Walks Out Of Interview When Told She’s ‘Playing Victim’
Tonya Harding and Piers Morgan got into a heated debate on Good Morning Britain, via satellite. Of course, Piers wasted no time being ruthless to the former Olympian who was accused of partaking in a 1994 attack on rival Nancy Kerrigan.
“I respect you for trying to ask these questions. I’m here to talk about the future and what it means,” she said. “My movie is going to help so many people, [and let them know] that it is OK to ask for help. So, that’s why I’m here.”
Piers responded: “Maybe it suits you to play the victim, [but] the victim was Nancy Kerrigan.”
Harding then tried to shut down the interview. “Thank you so much but I think I’m going to have to say have a good night,” she told the morning show host.
“You’re going?” Morgan asked.
“You weren’t letting me finish,” she replied. “I think many people are victims every day, people need to stand up for themselves, that abuse shouldn’t be happening anymore.”
Morgan chimed in, “Nancy Kerrigan was the victim, she was abused she was attacked.”
“People don’t understand what I was going through,” Harding insisted.
Bringing up the attack once more, Morgan pressed, “You did know what was happening, what they were planning to do didn’t you?”
“No I did not!” Harding exclaimed.
