Porn star takes her own life after being called ''homophobic'' online

August Ames dead

Adult film actress August Ames was found dead on Tuesday, according to police in southern California.

The Venture County Medical examiner confirmed the 23-year-old's death, but had yet to issue an official cause.

"She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me", Ames' husband Kevin Moore said in a statement.

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

According to Hollywood Life, friends close to Ames have claimed that she had been battling depression, and that online bullying may have played a part in her death.

Ames faced a Twitter backlash Sunday, with many calling her homophobic, after she advised an adult actress against performing with an actor who had featured in adult gay movies. She had also won AVN awards twice and was nominated for the Female Performer of the Year award at the 2018 AVN Awards, to be held in January 2018.

Ames' friends, including porn star Anikka Albrite, reportedly connected Ames' death to a heated online debate that took place in the days before she died.

Ames also tweeted Monday, replying a user who told her to apologize, "I don't have anything to apologize for!"

The last tweet she posted simply said "F**k ya'll". I'm not putting my body at risk, i don't know what they do in their private lives'. F-- you guys attacking me when none of my intentions were malicious.

I f-- love the gay community!

Hornet has since learned from the Ventura County Medical Examiner's office that her death was caused via a suicide by hanging. What the f-k ever!

Upon learning of her death, fellow adult entertainers took to social media to express their shock and sorrow. "Someone who I liked & would have even called a friend!"

On Dec. 4, 2017, Ames tweeted that she had refused to work with a male adult film performer in a shoot for the porn studio EroticaX because he had previously acted in gay porn.

"A attractive life is GONE because people like to use their "fan base" to bully others because THEIR opinion doesn't agree with YOURS", she wrote on Twitter.

Producer/director Jules Jordan added: "Rest In Peace to August Ames, one of the best, nicest people I ever knew in the business".
