A notice to all radio hosts: Making crude comments about an underage girl is a good way to lose a job.

Patrick Connor found that out Wednesday.

The host known as “P-Con” to Barstool Sports and KNBR listeners was fired by the Bay Area radio station Wednesday, one day after calling Olympic snowboarder Chloe Kim a “hot piece of ass.”

Kim, a 17-year-old from Torrance in her first Olympic games, won a gold medal in halfpipe Tuesday.

According to Deadspin, here’s part of the conversation Connor had Tuesday on the Sirius XM radio talk show “Dialed-In with Dallas Braden,” which features the former A’s pitcher, Connor and comedian Brody Stevens.

After a discussion about Twitter and making comparisons to Kim and reality star Kim Kardashian, the conversation took a cringing turn.

“Her 18th birthday is April 23, and the countdown is on baby, ’cause I got my Wooderson going,” Connor says, referring to a character in the movie “Dazed and Confused” who said, “That’s what I love about these high school girls.”

After Stevens agrees, Connor continues.

“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.”

However, not many people were fans of his comments, prompting him to apologize on Twitter “for being a total idiot.”

He also apologized on Barstool Sports, where he’s still employed, according to USA Today.

“Just quickly I want to apologize to Chloe Kim and her dad,” he said in a recorded statement. “They didn’t deserve my stupid, foolish and immature comments.”

Too little, too late. “The Shower Hour with P-Con” will no longer air on KNBR. A link to the show’s page just gives an error.
