Los Angeles – A president of AT&T Inc. has been fired after allegedly sending out a racially offensive text. An Associated Press (AP) report says the company confirmed its termination of Aaron Slator, who worked as president of content and advertising sales, on Tuesday.

Images were previously found on Slator’s work phone that were deemed racially offensive. One of the images was reportedly that of an African child dancing with a derogatory comment featured in the caption. It had been sent in a text labeling it as an “oldie but goodie” according to the lawsuit. An assistant who was asked to transfer data to a different phone was the person who found the images.

Slator is now also the subject of a multimillion discrimination lawsuit. AT&T said of the matter Tuesday, “There is no place for demeaning behavior within AT&T and we regret the action was not taken earlier.”

The lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angles Superior Court, names Slator, AT&T, and others.
