Radio host Patrick “Pcon” Connor was fired from his show on Wednesday over sexualized comments he made about 17-year-old Olympic snowboarder Chloe Kim. Connor was appearing on Dialed In with Dallas Braden on SiriusXM when Brody Stevens, a comedian, brought up Kim’s record-setting gold medal run in the snowboard halfpipe, telling Connor and Braden, a former Major League Baseball pitcher, that he felt “inspired” by her story. Connor replied by noting that “her 18th birthday is April 23,” adding that “the countdown is on.”

“She’s fine as hell!” said Connor. “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.”

Connor tweeted an apology for his comments on Wednesday, saying that it was “a weird attempt to make people laugh” and acknowledging that his sexualization of the young star was “lame & gross.”

That same day, San Francisco radio station KNBR told media outlets that Connor had been fired.
