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

HollywoodLife reports that August Ames, the stage name for Mercedes Grabowski, was found dead at 23 by hanging in Ventura County, California. The medical examiner's office in Ventura County confirmed her death Wednesday, XBIZ reported.

Her cause of death was unlisted by the coroner, but her pals believe Ames - who suffered from depression - took her own life.

It started when Ames tweeted what she believed to be an important warning to a fellow female porn star who would be replacing her in an Erotica X scene. Ames also criticized agents for not caring about who they represent in the porn industry.

Apple reveals the most popular apps, movies and music of 2017
Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead were the top TV shows of the year while NPR's Fresh Air was the most downloaded podcast. Snapchat's 2016 crown was snatched from them, but only just, by the popular Bitmooji app, which is owned by Snap.

Her husband Kevin, who has said her death is a private family matter, described his wife as "the kindest person I ever knew" and said "she meant the world". 'Most girls don't shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety.

The porn actress' comment was strongly criticized by a number of people online, with some saying she had singled out the gay performer.

The pornographic director and producer, whose marriage to 23-year-old Ames was kept relatively private, issued a statement to Adult Video News, a website focused on the adult entertainment industry. "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. Apologizing for taking extra steps to [ensure] that my body stays safe?

While Brown was done in by the team's lack of success, Jackson said that he did not doubt that he'd return despite a 1-27 mark. Brown's firing didn't cause any uproar among Cleveland's players, some of whom have been hardened by the constant turnover.

She said it was "BS" that she could be paired with someone who had also engaged in same-sex adult films, labelling such actors "crossover" performers.

"F*** you guys attacking me when none of my intentions were malicious".

"I think it's hilarious that your discriminating against a man who does/did gay porn when half of this industry has performed with such performers", she wrote. However, she wished her "sexy husband" a happy birthday on Twitter two years ago. She defended herself, pointing out that she liked women, and said she was merely making a decision on who she has sex with, noting it is "my body, my choice. No hate", she wrote in another tweet. You people should have known better than to berate her over her personal thoughts!
