Chloe Kim was one of the early breakout stars at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.
The 17-year-old American claimed gold in the women’s halfpipe, before finding herself in the headlines because of inappropriate comments made by a radio host.
Patrick Connor, who is a co-host of Barstool Sports’ new SiriusXM radio show Dialed-In With Dallas Braden, made sexually charged comments which led to an immediate apology.
Connor had referred to Kim as a “hot piece of ass.”
“Yesterday in a weird attempt to make people laugh I failed. My comments about Chloe Kim 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,” he wrote on Twitter.

Here is what Connor initially said about Kim:
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.”
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.
