Chicago radio station 670 The Score has fired on-air host Dan McNeil after a comment he made on social media about the outfit ESPN sideline reporter Maria Taylor was wearing on Monday night.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, McNeil posted a screenshot of Taylor and referenced the adult film industry in posing the question: "NFL sideline reporter or host for the AVN annual awards presentation?"

Entercom, the sports-talk station's parent company, issued a statement on Tuesday announcing McNeil's departure, calling his tweet "degrading and humiliating" and apologizing to "all who were offended by Dan's words, especially Maria."

News of McNeil's departure was first reported by Deadspin's Julie DiCaro, formerly a host and reporter for the station.
