ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — A private school in North Texas has suspended an administrator who posted a profane online message criticizing the attorney who represents porn actress Stormy Daniels.

The Oakridge School in Arlington said in a statement Monday that it indefinitely suspended Butch Groves for conduct deemed “unacceptable.”

Groves in a tweet Sunday made derogatory comments about lawyer Michael Avenatti, saying at one point that he’s a “lying piece of (expletive).”

Avenatti responded by identifying Groves as a top administrator with the school.

Efforts to reach Groves on Tuesday for comment were unsuccessful.

Avenatti is representing Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, in a defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump.

Daniels has said she had sex once with Trump in 2006 and carried on a platonic relationship with him for about a year.
