I Don’t Forgive Tonya Harding

… ‘Did a Horrible Thing’

Hollywood can forgive Tonya Harding if they want … but Johnny Weir says that’s NEVER gonna happen with him and the rest of the figure skating community.

We spoke with Weir the day after Harding got a shout-out at the Golden Globes … and he told us why the inspiration for “I, Tonya” doesn’t deserve a pass.

“She did a horrible, horrible thing,” Johnny told TMZ Sports. “She’s a pariah in our sport and she shouldn’t be forgiven for basically, possibly having the opportunity of ruining somebody’s life.”

Of course, Weir’s referring to the 1994 scandal where Harding’s ex-husband hired a goon to attack rival Nancy Kerrigan before the Olympics.

Harding was subsequently blacklisted from ice skating — and Weir says it should stay that way.

On a lighter note, Johnny told us Team USA looks great this year — and name-dropped the one American skater we all gotta watch at the Games!
