Radio host fired after calling teen Olympian Chloe Kim 'fine as hell'

A San Francisco sports radio host was sacked by KNBR on Wednesday after making a series of sexually suggestive comments about 17-year-old US Olympian Chloe Kim, the Sacramento Bee reported. On Monday night, KNBR program director Jeremiah Crowe told Awful Announcing "KNBR, nor Cumulus Media condone the comments made by Patrick Connor on his SiriusXM program".

Yes, those lovely words were spewed from the mouth of Patrick Connor on Tuesday during the Barstool Sports Sirius XM radio talk show "Dialed-In with Dallas Braden".

Aside from his work with Barstool Sports, Connor hosts a show on KNBR in San Francisco and has apologized for his inappropriate comment this morning via Twitter.

Kim, 17, won the gold medal in the women's snowboard halfpipe Tuesday by posting a near-perfect 98.25 score, and she has charmed the world on the biggest stage with both her ability and personality, especially through her hilarious and relatable tweets.

Kim said: "I was trying so hard to hold the tears back 'cause I was like, 'I can't cry right now, I can't do this, I worked so hard on my eyeliner'". "She's into it, a little kid - I'm inspired by it", Stevens began, in audio caught by Deadspin. He compares himself to Matthew McConaughey's character in "Dazed and Confused", who is famous for the line "That's what I love about these high school girls".

Connor: She's fine as hell! I'm sorry to Chloe & her family...she's awesome and I'm really embarrased. And she is. She is adorable. You've repped our country so brilliantly.

In a February 14 tweet, Connor apologized for his "weird attempt to make people laugh". "I'm a huge Chloe Kim fan", said Connor. "I apologize to my colleagues & the listeners for being a total idiot", he wrote on Twitter. He called Connor's comments "an egregious professional error". Co-host Dallas Braden emphatically said Barstool was better than the comments, adding "We understand the severity and the seriousness of the comments made and we will spend every waking moment, every day we are allowed on the air to share the waves with you, the folks that pay attention, to let you know that is not who we are, that is not where this show comes from, that is not where these brands come from".
