August Ames felt the wrath of acceptance after she warned the woman replacing her on set for an adult film that she would be working with a man who had worked in gay porn in the past. This led to series of events leading to tragedy.
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.
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 homosexual porn.
