August Ames Died Because Of Online Bullies, Adult Actress Brett Rossi Says

Porn star August Ames tragically passed away at the age of 23 on December 5, mere days after she defended herself on Twitter after she posted a controversial tweet.

The 23-year-old Canadian entertainer, whose real name is Mercedes Grabowski, was found dead on Tuesday under mysterious circumstances.

The Canada-born actress died on Tuesday in Camarillo, California, according to the Ventura County Medical Examiner.

He said: "She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me".

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

Close friends had said that she was prone to depression, according to The Blast, but the online abuse she received may have triggered her suicide.

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.
