Patrick Connor’s lewd remarks about 17-year-old Olympic snowboarder Chloe Kim got the radio host yanked off the air at sports talk station KNBR in San Francisco.

Yahoo Sports reported his firing followed his comments on Barstool Radio’s SiriusXM channel on Tuesday as he was chatting live on air with Dallas Braden, a former Oakland A’s pitcher, and comedian Brody Stevens.

Along with one particularly offensive remark about the girl, Connor said that although she was underage her 18th birthday was around the corner and “the countdown is on, baby,” according to Sporting News.

By Wednesday Connor -- who call himself "P-con" -- reportedly had lost his morning show, “The Shower Hour with Patrick Connor,” on KNBR.

That was later confirmed by a representative for the station’s parent company, Cumulus Media, per USA Today, although no reason for the termination had been disclosed at first.

Connor was heavily criticized for his comments and released an apology via his Twitter account saying they were “more than inappropriate they were lame & gross.”

He also released an official statement in which he apologized to Kim and her father for his “stupid, foolish and immature comments,” per USA Today.

Kim hails from Southern California and is proving to be the darling of this year’s Winter Games, posting a near-perfect 98.25 score in her final run in the women’s halfpipe competition, Yahoo Sports noted.

“I just say, 'Never give up,” she told CNBC of her rise to fame.

“I feel like dreams are always a little tricky, you know. But if you just push through the struggles and the hard times, it'll be so worth it in the end, because you will be able to get to your dreams.”
