U.S. snowboarder Chloe Kim won the gold medal in women's halfpipe on Monday. As the 17-year-old from California became the talk of the sports world for her talents and Twitter savvy, one radio host found himself out of a job when his Kim commentary crossed the line.

In a broadcast on Barstool Radio's Dialed-In with Dallas Braden, co-host Patrick Connor made sexually charged remarks about Kim.

Connor said via Deadspin:

As Connor's comment made its way around social media, the host took to Twitter and apologized.
