Barstool Sports host makes inappropriate comment about underage Olympian Chloe Kim

Chloe Kim has come forth as the best story from the PyeongChang Olympics as of now. Her victory, her family's story, and her enthusiastic tweets about food is the talk of the town everywhere. Despite the various topics, one Barstool Sports radio personality chose to explore another topic and make a disrespectful comment about an underage female athlete... He thought it would be a good idea to call 17-year-old Chloe Kim a "little hot piece of ass."
The wildly inappropriate exchange took place on "Dialed-In with Dallas Braden," a radio show on Barstool Radio's SiriusXM channel. Braden is a former Major League Baseball pitcher who has worked for ESPN. He did not make the comment which was done by co-host Patrick Connor.
Audio of the event was captured by Deadspin. During the conversation, Connor makes reference to Kim's 18th birthday coming up in April. 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. I get older, they stay the same age." Connor even quotes that line.
After another co-host, Brody Stevens, agrees, Connor says the following: "She's fine as hell. 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."
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.
Yesterday in a weird attempt to make people laugh I failed. My comments about @chloekimsnow were more than inappropriate they were lame & gross. Im truly sorry Chloe. You’ve repped our country so brilliantly. I apologize to my colleagues & the listeners for being a total idiot.— Patrick Connor (@pcon34) February 14, 2018
