Patrick Connor of Barstool Sports Sirius XM took to Twitter to express remorse for saying 17-year-old Chloe Kim is "a hot piece of a—" on Tuesday's broadcast, but his other employer, KNBR of San Francisco, took swift action and fired Conner.
#Breaking- per #KNBR Program director Jeremiah Crowe: "Be advised that Patrick Connor is no longer with Cumulus Media." Radio personality known as 'P-con' dismissed after crass/sexual comments directed at #ChloeKim.— Sam Brock (@SamNBCBayArea) February 14, 2018
Connor was on the air with Dallas Braden, a former Oakland A’s pitcher, and comedian Brody Stevens when Kim came up. Connor acknowledged that Kim was underage, but noted that her 18th birthday was April 23 and said, "the countdown is on, baby."
"She’s fine as hell! If she was 18, you wouldn’t be ashamed to say that she’s a little hot piece of a—. And she is. She is adorable. I’m a huge Chloe Kim fan," Connor continued.
Connor received backlash for the comments, which prompted him to apologize on Twitter.
Yesterday in a weird attempt to make people laugh I failed. My comments about @chloekimsnow were more than inappropriate they were lame & gross. Im truly sorry Chloe. You’ve repped our country so brilliantly. I apologize to my colleagues & the listeners for being a total idiot.— Patrick Connor (@pcon34) February 14, 2018
Too little, too late.
