Adult Film Star August Ames Dead at 23

August Ames, 23, was found dead in southern California on Tuesday (local time).

Law enforcement sources said she was pronounced dead at the scene, and there was no indication of foul play.

Police did not give a specific location as to where the actress purportedly took her life. The Ventura County Medical Examiner Media spokesperson EXCLUSIVELY revealed to HollywoodLife.com the cause of her death.

After posting her statements on Twitter, Ames was hit with a barrage of comments accusing her of being homophobic.

She also had a large social media following, though friends tell The Blast her prominent online presence may have contributed to her death.

Ames tweeted on Sunday suggesting that she did not work with men who have done gay porn. Do agents really not care about who they're representing? BS is all I can say.

Ames' death spurred a Twitter conversation among people in the porn industry about cyberbullying and porn actors' rights to choose who they work with.

While some of Ames' Twitter fans have begun publicly mourning her passing, others have blamed the gay community for covering her tweets, with one outright saying that "gay activists bullied August Ames into suicide because she tweeted she didn't wanna have sex with a gay man".

Ames immediately received backlash and was called homophobic.

August vehemently denied the accusation she was being homophobic and posted a series of tweets over the next two days defending herself. That's just how it is with me. I'm not putting my body at risk, i don't know what they do in their private lives'. Apologizing for taking extra steps to ensue that my body stays safe?

"F-k you guys for attacking me when none of my intentions were malicious". I CHOOSE who I have inside my body.

'Please leave this as a private family matter in this hard time, ' he added.

August Ames, whose real name was Born Mercedes Grabowski, was born in Antigonish, Canada on 23 August 1994.

He said: "She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me".

Fellow porn star Abella Danger described Ames as 'the most kind-hearted person ever'.

'I f*****g loved this girl so much... Sought after from the beginning of her career, Ames earned a nomination in 2015 for AVN Best New Starlet, and was a nominee every year since for Female Performer of the Year, including this year for the upcoming 2018 AVN Awards in January.
