A Chicago radio host has been fired after he remarked that an ESPN sideline reporter's outfit belonged at a porn awards show. 

Dan McNeil of Chicago's 670 The Score ridiculed the ensemble Maria Taylor donned for Monday Night Football in a tweet during last night's face-off between the Giants and the Steelers.  

'NFL sideline reporter or a host for the AVN [Adult Video News] annual awards presentation?' McNeil wrote alongside a screengrab of Taylor. 

He deleted the post after about 30 minutes, but not before it sparked outrage from several critics, including Taylor herself. 

'Well Danny Dearest if you would like to continue making sexist comments about me…please bring your misogyny with you to the NBA Countdown doubleheader I’ll be hosting tomorrow night,' the reporter, who had just finished covering the first NFL game of her career, snapped back.

'Hey ladies remember you can wear whatever you feel confident in!' she added. 

Entercom Chicago, which runs McNeil's show, issued a statement on Tuesday afternoon confirming that the host had been fired.
