Adult Film Star August Ames Commits Suicide After Being Bullied Online For Refusing To Have Sex With Gay Porn Actors

December 7, 2017 | 7 Comments » | Topics: main, Story

August Ames, 23, who starred in more than 270 films and twice won at the Adult Video News Awards, was found dead Tuesday in California after hanging herself, authorities said.

The Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office on Thursday confirmed the cause of death as asphyxia due to hanging after notifying family members.

Ames was earlier this week branded a “homophobe” after revealing she had pulled out of an adult film after finding out her co-star was a “crossover” (men who had also appeared in gay pornography)

After posting her statements on Twitter, Ames was hit with a barrage of comments accusing her of anti-gay prejudice. She defended herself, pointing out that she liked women, and said she was merely making a decision about who she has sex with, noting it is “my body, my choice.”

The tweet drew the ire of many of her colleagues, with both male and female actors weighing in. “It’s extremely unfair to be black listed because a ridiculous naive stigmatism created by unethical homophobes,” Eli Hunter tweeted.

“I have been doing films for over 8 years and have never contracted anything because my health and safety comes first. So yes, offence taken.”

Nick Capra said she “may be the stupidest woman I’ve come across in 15 years of this industry”. “Next time use your brain when openly being a c*** on Twitter,” he said.

Sinn Sage described safety concerns as “bulls***”. “Before your shoot [with] said performer, for a [big] shoot, he would have to get tested, by the same testing companies we all use,” she tweeted.

“When the results are clear, you are clear to f*** him. AND you can ask to use a condom if you want. So there is literally no reason to discriminate.”

Jaxton Wheeler said the “world is awaiting your apology or for you to swallow a cyanide pill”. “Either or we’ll take it,” he tweeted.

    People are idiots… plain and simple.

    Her, for taking her own life because of other idiots, and the other idiots for being offended by what she said. Like she said, “her body, her choice.”

    This world is full of idiots.

    it isnt even known that she killed herself because of the bullying.
    i read that her friends said she was prone to depression. that might be a reason too.
    anyway, i wished she didnt kill herself, i was a fan and she was awesome.

    it fucking sucks for her family and friends though. not for me.

    this will never reach them, but they have my condolances.

    well she is a porn star so prob not the best mental health. got to love the mafia communities – if you don’t fck a gay porn star you hate gay people lol. Can’t wait for the CA law – if you don’t fuck illegal aliens you hate them. BLM – if you don’t fck black guys you hate black people.
