Radio host calls 17-year-old Chloe Kim a ‘hot piece of a–‘
A radio host is under fire for making an inappropriate comment about 17-year-old American snowboarder Chloe Kim, who won a gold medal in the women’s halfpipe at the Olympics this week.
Patrick Connor, who co-hosts “Dialed-In with Dallas Braden” on Barstool Radio on SiriusXM, made the inappropriate comment while he and his co-hosts were talking about the snowboarder.
“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,” Connor said.
If you’re expecting an apology from Connor, don’t hold your breath. He already responded to the matter via Twitter and poked fun at Deadspin for posting about his comments.

Radio station WEEI recently suspended a host for a racist/offensive skit last week, and this comment was much worse.
Barstool Sports’ founder addressed the comment in a blog post and called it “sort of a stupid comment.”
“Keep in mind this show is 2 days old. [Patrick Connor] has been working for us for less than 48 hours. Yeah it was sort of a stupid comment but to dedicate an entire blog to it?
Barstool Sports has endeared themselves to their fans with edgy, non-politically correct, and sometimes offensive commentary, so their fans are probably used to this. However, most people would agree that this kind of remark crosses a line.
