Patrick Connor, a KNBR Radio host in San Francisco who also co-hosts a sports-talk show on Sirius XM's Barstool Radio channel, has been fired by KNBR for inappropriate comments made about U.S. Olympian Chloe Kim on Barstool Radio, according to USA TODAY Sports.
The controversial comments have since gone viral, which Deadspin's Laura Wagner reported on Tuesday evening. The following transcription, provided by Deadspin, is from Connor and his co-hosts, comedian Brody Stevens and former MLB pitcher Dallas Braden:
Stevens: Me, personally, I’m on Twitter, I see Chloe Kim, I’m thinking Khloe Kardashian, Kim [Kardashian], I don’t want to deal with that. So I missed out on the whole Chloe Kim thing. But it’s a good story. She’s into it, a little kid — I’m inspired by it.
Braden: Chloe Kim, famous for riding a very different board than Kim Kardashian.
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. “That’s what I like about them high school girls.”
Stevens: I love it P-Con, I’m right there with you.
Connor: 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.
The radio host, who remains employed by Barstool, later apologized on Twitter.
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.
