KNBR Radio host suspended after inappropriate Chloe Kim comments on Barstool Radio

A United States radio presenter was sacked for calling 17-year-old Winter Olympics star Chloe Kim "a little piece of hot ass" and counting down the days until her 18th birthday.

His employer failed to see the amusing side of the comments and Connor was promptly fired, Jeremiah Crowe, program director of KNBR-AM, said in a statement on Wednesday.

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.

After sending out the tweet apologizing, several people replied to Connor questioning his comments, which he responded to as he tried to explain his thought process.

Barstool Sports has developed quite the cult of personalities in recent years.

Connor: No doubt, and in fact just to keep it on that tip, her 18th birthday is April 23, and the countdown is on baby, 'cause I got my Wooderson going.
