AT&T said Tuesday it has fired Aaron Slator, the president of its U-Verse business amid a lawsuit alleging Slator sent racist text messages.

“Aaron Slator has been terminated,” AT&T said in a statement. “There is no place for demeaning behavior within AT&T and we regret the action was not taken earlier.”

Slator’s duties will be handled by company veteran Eric Boyer, who was previously a senior vice president for U-Verse.
