Adult Film Actress August Ames Kills Self After Being Targeted for Homophobia


The famous pornstar, August Ames, acted in over 270 adult films in her entire career.

Nick Capra said she "may be the stupidest woman I've come across in 15 years of this industry".

Mercedes Grabowski (known as August Ames) died of asphyxia due to hanging, the Ventura Health Care Agency reported. "Manner is suicide", the agency's public information officer told International Business Times.

According to Independent, police have found no indication of foul play that leads to her passing but fear August may have taken her own life. "Someone who I liked and would have even called a friend", wrote Albrite.

Ames was subject to a barrage of abuse on Twitter over the weekend after saying she would not work with "crossover" gay porn actors.

To let you remind, on December 2, August had complained about having to do a scene with a male adult film actor who had done a gay scene previously. BS is all I can say.

Responding to another critic, she later wrote: "I don't have anything to apologize for!"

Ames claimed that medical testing was different for straight vs gay sex scenes, and did not want to participate.

Days earlier, she had found herself embroiled in a social media row with her 580,000 followers. 'Most girls don't shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety. 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'.

It would see Ladbrokes Coral shareholders own around 46.5% of the combined group and GVC around 53.5%. A larger company could have a greater competitive advantage versus sector peers.

"I don't have anything to apologise for!" Apologizing for taking extra steps to ensure that my body stays safe?

"F-k you guys for attacking me when none of my intentions were malicious".

Performer Aidra Fox, via her @NeonLolita Twitter account, said, "I just am in shock". What the fuck ever! Our hearts go out to August's friends and family during this extremely hard time.

Ames, whose real name was Mercedes Grabowski, was something of a rising star in the adult industry.

Shortly after her death had been confirmed, an outpouring of condolence from friends and industry peers filled up Ames's Twitter page, many describing her as a kind person with a big heart.

"She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me", said her husband, director Kevin Moore.

'I f*****g loved this girl so much.

Performer Kissa Sins tweeted: "You were always there for me when I was feeling sad or sensitive and I'll always love you". Ames also scored a nomination for Female Performer of the Year in 2016, 2017 and the upcoming 2018 Awards, set for January.

Ames was remembered on social media by her fellow porn stars, including Charlie Sheen's ex-girlfriend Brett Rossi.
