Canadian Adult Film Star August Ames Dead at 23. Days After Leftist SJWs Attacked Her Online
August Ames, 23, a porn star who received two AVN Awards over her career, was found dead in Camarillo, California, the Ventura County Medical Examiner confirms. Although toxicology tests are being conducted, some friends allegedly believe she may have taken her own life. However, the official cause of her death, which is still being investigated, has not been confirmed. August, who had recently worked on adult TV shows such as Baby Got Boobs and Hot and Mean, was pronounced dead at the scene. Although, according to The Blast, there was reportedly no evidence of foul play. Friends close to August have claimed the late porn star suffered from depression, and that online bullying may have played a part in her passing.
On Dec. 2, August had complained on Twitter about filming a scene with an actor who had done gay porn and refused to do the scene with him. As a result, leftists, social justice warriors and others slammed her on Twitter for being a “homophobe.” Ironically, this is the same group who preaches feminism and women's rights and is shaming a woman for choosing what to do with her own body.
In the wake of her death, a friend of hers, Annika Albright, implied that the recent backlash might have contributed to her death. Annika tweeted, “Omg, I can’t believe she’s dead. You people should have known better than to berate her over her personal thoughts! Shame on all you for beating it into the ground. Online harassment is a real thing & it claimed another life. Someone who I liked & would have even called a friend!”
"She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me," her husband, director Kevin Moore, told industry trade magazine Adult Video News (AVN), which first reported news of her death. "Please leave this as a private family matter in this difficult time."
Ames was born Mercedes Grabowski in Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1994, and worked in a bar and at a tanning salon before joining the adult film industry in 2013, according to AVN.
