"She's a complicated subject for a song partly because the hard facts of her life are so unusual, disputable, heroic, unprecedented, and indelibly American". As for Harding? - The U.S. Figure Skating Association banned her for life from skating. Harding avoided jail time but pleaded guilty to hindering the prosecution. Nancy Kerrigan recovered from her injury and won a silver medal at the Winter Olympics. "I didn't want to sugarcoat her. once I put on the wig, which altered my hairline, and bleached my eyebrows, I started to see Tonya". She is also known for a sex tape she sold to Penthouse and for her boxing and auto racing careers.
Tonya Harding's dramatic rise and fall was fiercely followed by the media, and she very quickly became the brunt of jokes, the subject of tabloid headlines and public outcry. "I went down and she's on the driveway and there's this python, it was huge, it had wrapped its way up her arm and it's trying to strangle her around her neck".
