Connor realise the comment on Barstool Radio’s Sirius XM channel, but it was another of his boss, San Francisco radio station KNBR, that fired him Wednesday, news outlets reported. Connor hosted “The Shower Hour” at that station.
KNBR program director Jeremiah Crowe confirmed the departure to the San Jose Mercury News without elaborating.
Connor apparently remained employed by Barstool.
Former Major League Baseball pitcher Dallas Braden, host of the new Sirius XM “Dialed-In” appearance on which Connor prepared his crass observes Tuesday, said Barstool understands the “severity and the seriousness of specific comments obligated … and that’s not who we are, ” according to USA Today.
Connor defended on Twitter, announcing his statements “lame and gross.”
While the world celebrated 17 -year-old Kim’s spectacular victory in the women’s halfpipe, Connor said in audio captured by Deadspin: “She’s fine as hell! If she used 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.”
In considering Kim, Connor previously referenced a Matthew McConaughey route from “Dazed and Confused”: “That’s what I love about these high school girlfriends. I get older, they abide the same age.”
