PATRICK CONNOR who co-hosts the Sirius XM talk show, Dialed-In with Dallas Braden on Barstool Radio has provided an “apology”, which sounds like a “sorry, not sorry” type statement on Twitter for saying that Korean American Winter Olympics Snowboarding Gold Medalist 17 year old CHLOE KIM is a:
“LITTLE HOT PIECE OF ASS”…
We posted on this yesterday, so please check out our post for the details of the radio segment. I read his statement and didn’t feel satisfied, considering he tried to make excuses for his behaviour. Here is his statement:
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.
I can’t fathom how treating the talented and awesome 17 year old as a piece of meat instead of highlighting her achievement and her abilities would be a “joke” in the first instance? I mean to sexualize her and fetishize her is really no joke and it shows Connor’s true colours. According to the replies to his Tweet, he got heat from the radio station, so I would assume that is the only reason he even attempted this apology.
Seriously, Kim is 17 years old and Connor is like what mid 30s to his 40s? This is pretty disgusting if you ask me no matter what the joke or situation is. Just look at some of these replies to his Tweet, which echo how shitty his comments were.
In addition, according to Washington Post, it appears that Connor has been fired from another radio station which he works at for the comments he made about Kim. San Francisco’s KNBR fired him just after the public blow up resulting from his comments, but Barstool Radio is still apparently keeping him on with the founder of Barstool Sports Dave Portnoy, calling Connor’s comments stupid, but provided also a shitty statement trying to excuse this behaviour and telling those who are opposed to having jokes, not to listen to the station.
Another case of privileged men trying to wriggle out of their misogyny? I think so.
Let us know what y’all think…
