Literally days after speaking out against gay 4 pay porn models and receiving a fierce roast, blogs are reporting that Adult star August Ames passed away under mysterious circumstances.
Although there is no official report of what caused her death, love ones close to her suspect she committed suicide.
From The Daily News
Porn star August Ames, a rising star in the adult film industry, reportedly died Tuesday in California. She was 23.
The Ventura County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed her death to The Blast.
The outlet reports that her cause of death is currently unknown, but friends suspect it was a suicide, as Ames was prone to depression.
Law enforcement sources said she was pronounced dead at the scene, and there was no indication of foul play.
She also had a large social media following, though friends tell The Blast her prominent online presence may have contributed to her death.
Ames’s Twitter feed was littered in recent days with cyberbullies accusing her of being homophobic after she publicly chose not to work with an unidentified actor who had previously shot gay porn.
“Choose who YOU want to work with”
“Don’t do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable”
“Share your thoughts”
Hmm. Well, I did all three, and twitter took a dump on me🤷🏽♀️

Regardless if our opinions differ, no one deserves to be cyberbullied. People can be so ruthless and careless with their words. We have to be very careful of what we say.
Suicide is DEFINITELY not the answer but clearly this woman was already in a fragile state of mind and I think the backlash is what made her snap. It’s such terrible ending.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and love ones during this difficult time!
