August Ames death: Is this why adult film star, 23, died?

August Ames, famous for movies like "Beauty and the Beast XXX: An Erotic Fairy Tale Parody" and "Baby Got Boobs", has died, and friends of the actress believe she took her own life. Her body of work included multiple performances for just about every major studio in adult entertainment.

The Ventura County Medical Examiner confirms Ames passed away Tuesday in Ventura County at the age of 23.

Following confirmation of Ames's death, an outpouring of condolence from friends and industry peers filled up Ames's Twitter page, with many describing her as a kind person with a big heart. "Please leave this as a private family matter in this hard time".

That being said, friends of Ames suspect it was a suicide, as she was prone to depression, The Blast reported.

August Ames, whose real name was Born Mercedes Grabowski, was born in Antigonish, Canada on 23 August 1994.

Ames debuted in 2013 and was a two-time AVN Award-winner with more than 270 credits, according to AVN. She had also won AVN awards twice and was nominated for the Female Performer of the Year award at the 2018 AVN Awards, to be held in January 2018.

"NOT homophobic. Most girls don't shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety".

Ames was in the midst of controversy a few days ago after passing derogatory comments about gay porn workers on her Twitter handle, after she dropped out of a project because her co-star had worked in gay porn before. She also said that she didn't want to put "my body at risk".

After a barrage of criticism and abuse, she posted an ominous tweet, which turned out to be her last.

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

She refused to apologise and instead said she "loves the gay community". What the f-- ever!

August Ames' cause of death has been a mystery... until now.

Ames' death spurred a Twitter conversation among people in the porn industry about cyberbullying and porn actors' rights to choose who they work with.

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

'Rest In Peace to August Ames, one of the best, nicest people I ever knew in the business, ' producer Jules Jordan wrote in a tweet.
