Kerrigan, though only bruised, was not able to compete in the Championships. Harding pled guilty to hindering the prosecution following the attack on Kerrigan and was subsequently banned from the U.S. Figure Skating Association for life. In addition to the film, Sufjan Stevens released a song about the skater on Tuesday, simply titled "Tonya Harding". As responsible for fueling Harding's drive as she is for planting the seeds for her insecurities and self-loathing, she is a combination of Anthony Perkins' mother from "Psycho" and LaVar Ball. And, though she seems perfectly content to live her life in peace, she has stepped out recently to support I, Tonya, giving fans a glimpse at Tonya Harding in 2017. She was a reality TV star before such a thing even existed.
Robbie wasn't alone in her excitement over Harding's appearance. "I'm totally star struck right now".

The Seattle Mariners made a similar deal with the Twins in order to acquire worldwide slot money of their own on Wednesday night. Also, all three major league outfielders - Mike Trout, Justin Upton and Kole Calhoun - are now signed through 2020, at least.
The showing of the film was the first time that Harding had watched the movie about her scandal-filled 20s with a full audience. "I thought I was going to meet her to placate her, but really she was more anxious about me-how I was doing with the ice-skating, how I was doing with the fame at a young age". "She said she laughed and she cried and there's obviously parts she doesn't agree with", Robbie told Deadline.
While walking the red carpet, a reportedly emotional Harding was joined by Robbie, 27, who graciously posed with her. Harding took first place. In 2009, Harding spoke to Oprah Winfrey about her volatile upbringing and career. He describes the infamous skater as a "strange and magnificent American hero", who accomplished so much before she even turned the age of 30. Hopefully, this means fans will get to see more of Tonya Harding in 2018.
