A radio host was fired after making lewd comments about 17-year-old Olympic snowboarder Chloe Kim.
Patrick Connor, a former radio host for sports talk station KNBR, was fired from his show Wednesday after calling Kim a “hot piece of ass,” reported The Sacramento Bee. Kim won a gold medal snowboarding for the United State during her Olympic debut in Pyeongchang. This did not stop Connor from turning the conversation sexual.
“Her 18th birthday is April 23, and the countdown is on baby, ’cause I got my Wooderson going,” said Connor, refereing the movie “Dazed and Confused,” “That’s what I love about these high school girls.”
“She’s fine as hell. If she was 18, you wouldn’t be ashamed to say that she’s a little hot piece of ass. And she is. She is adorable. I’m a huge Chloe Kim fan,” added Connor.
Connor later apologized to Kim on Twitter calling his suggestive comments a “weird attempt to make people laugh.”
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.
