Tonya Harding Received Applause atthe Golden Globes and People Are Conflicted

By Mustafa Gatollari

When I was a kid, my peers and I would often make fun of the Nancy Kerrigan-Tonya Harding scandal that was all over the news. "Why me, why me!" we'd moan around the classroom, running around, cackling with laughter.

 It wasn't until our teacher, bless her heart, told us exactly what kind of situation we were mocking. We felt bad for Nancy, and suddenly the joke wasn't funny anymore. Well, not as funny.

I inevitably wanted to learn more about the craziness of the Harding-Kerrigan story, and became morbidly fascinated with the ice skater's "by any means necessary attitude," and so did many other people. Margot Robbie even ended up producing and starring in an amazing film about Harding's life, I, Tonya.
