Louis C.K. and his foul mouth have gotten NPR’s ‘Fresh Air With Terry Gross‘ in trouble.

According to MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow, a conversation between Gross and the comedian got the show kicked off Mississippi radio for what Mississippi Public Broadcasting calls “recurring inappropriate conduct.”

The banter in question? The radio host and her guest were talking about Louis C.K.’s penchant for wearing a shirt during sex.

“But if I’m with a woman and she wants to be with me, she must like me. I definitely have sex with my T-shirt on, always. I haven’t had sex without a shirt on, God, since I was about 23,” he said.

Maddow reports that several state colleges and universities share offices with Mississippi Public Broadcasting, and the colleges often broadcast the radio shows when they put someone on hold.

One caller got an earful of Louis C.K.’s story and complained, prompting the cancellation, since the station has a zero-tolerance policy for inappropriate conduct.
