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.

Her popularity had risen steadily since she nabbed a nomination for Best New Starlet at the 2015 AVN Awards; she scored a nomination for Female Performer of the Year in 2016, 2017 and the upcoming 2018 Awards, set for January. Most girls don't shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety.

Various tweeters have begun blaming the gay media for her death, even going so far as to imply that she may have committed suicide over the negative media attention following her tweets.

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.

Her tweet caused controversy since she pointed out that the guy in the film had shot gay porn. She also said that she didn't want to put "my body at risk".

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

Numerous figures in the porn industry were deeply shocked by the news of Ames' death, with fellow porn star Abella Danger tweeting: "She was the most kind-hearted person ever".

Ames was married to adult film director Kevin Moore.

Others in the porn fraternity too took to Twitter to mourn her death.

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