Adult film star August Ames dies at the age of 23

LOS ANGELES-Adult star August Ames passed away Tuesday, the Ventura County Medical Examiner's office confirmed this morning.

According to preliminary data, 23-year-old girl died alone. "Manner is suicide", the agency's public information officer told International Business Times.

Just two days before her death, Drake criticized Ames' decision not to shoot a lewd scene with a male actor who had done homosexual films, citing "safety" concerns.

Ames also shared that she has an "awful relationship" with her father.

Ames was born Mercedes Grabowski in Nova Scotia and worked in a bar before she joined the adult film industry in 2013.

"Whichever (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow. you're shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn, just to let cha know". They told me that lately Mercedes clashed with Directors, who forced him to withdraw from the gay. My body, my rules. I'm sorry I didn't do more to help.

On the imageboard website, where users post anonymously, users posted comments identifying images of Ames they called "wholesome" from which they created memes targeting their political opponents. "I love you baby girl". I fucking love the gay community!

"ALLLLLLL performers must subject to the SAME testing in order to work".

Jaxton Wheeler, a self-professed "pansexual" adult entertainer, tweeted at Ames: "World is awaiting your apology or for you to swallow a cyanide pill".

Performer Abella Danger said, "She was the most kind-hearted person ever". I just can't believe it. RIP. I'm not putting my body at risk, i don't know what they do in their private lives'.

Ames then discussed her current struggles with depression, talking about her need to find a "good f-cking therapist", and how hard it had been for her.

A porn star relentlessly bullied on Twitter after saying she did not want to have sex with some who has shot gay porn committed suicide by hanging.

Her final tweet read simply: "f*** y'all".

"She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me". He also asked for privacy.

Anna Lee, a film writer, producer and director, said: "August Ames - one of the first women I had the pleasure of shooting and a lovely Canadian".

Annika Albrite, a fellow porn star, expressed her shock over Ames' death.

August's grieving brother James, who lives in Canada, said he was struggling to deal with the news of his sister's death.
