Now that the film I, Tonya is in theaters and getting Oscar buzz, retired American figure skater Tonya Harding is back in the spotlight with a sympathetic take on the incident that made her a household name 23 years ago. But her once skating rival Nancy Kerrigan hasn't exactly made plans to rush to theaters to see the dramatization of her famous kneecapping assault.
"Not right now. I really have nothing to say about it. I haven’t seen anything. I haven’t watched anything."
I’ve been busy. I was at the national [figure skating] championships this week so I didn’t watch the Golden Globes. I haven’t seen the movie. I’m just busy living my life.
Can't say we blame her.
Nancy Kerrigan for the win! What a subtle way to let Tonya know she ain't got time for all that!— Beautiful Chaos (@Mathewsfam09) January 14, 2018
Although many were hoping for something more substantial from Kerrigan regarding the movie.
Lmao right? “It’s been great reliving that shitty moment in my life over and over as if that’s the only thing that’s ever happened to me..”??— t (@dopaminediscord) January 14, 2018
Right?! And why would she watch it, lol. Who wants to watch a movie about your attack from the perspective of your attacker?!— K (@peasandkaris) January 14, 2018
In the interview, Shaughnessy seemed about as content with Kerrigan's non-response as Twitter was.
I don’t know. At this point, it’s so much easier and better to just be . . . it’s not really part of my life. As you say, I was the victim. Like, that’s my role in this whole thing. That’s it. It is weird, that’s for sure. A bizarre thing. The whole thing was crazy, being that it’s a story. I mean, come on.’
The mindfulness of this response is beautiful. Nancy ain't got no time for the foolery and fuckery! I love it!— Dee J. 🏳️🌈 (@DeeIbdulJackson) January 14, 2018
