23 Years Old. RIP

 

 

Reading she didn't want to do a scene with a gay male porn star.  Attacked on twitter by gays calling her homophobic and harassing her.  She committed suicide.

 

 

LOS ANGELES—Adult star August Ames passed away Tuesday, the Ventura County Medical Examiner's office confirmed this morning. The cause of her death was not confirmed at post time, but Ames was 23.

"She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me," said her husband, director Kevin Moore. "Please leave this as a private family matter in this difficult time."

A native of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada, Ames was a two-time AVN Award-winner with more than 270 credits since her debut in 2013. Her body of work included multiple performances for just about every major studio in adult entertainment. Sought after from the beginning of her career, Ames earned a nomination in 2015 for AVN Best New Starlet, and was a nominee every year since for Female Performer of the Year, including this year for the upcoming 2018 AVN Awards in January. 

The adult industry was in shock upon hearing the news Wednesday as several industry members took to Twitter to offer condolences.

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

Performer Abella Danger said, "She was the most kind-hearted person ever."

Photographer Holly Randall tweeted, "I fucking loved this girl so much. @AugustAmesxxx I am so sorry that I didn’t know it was this bad.... we are all so broken hearted, you were truly loved by so many. I just can’t believe it. RIP."

Performer Aidra Fox, via her @NeonLolita Twitter account, said, "I just am in shock.... @AugustAmesxxx you were such a beautiful light in this industry. Thank you for your impact in this world. You’re going to be so missed."

“Can’t believe the sad news. Gone way to soon? RIP @AugustAmesxxx,” said performer Danny Mountain.

Director Stills by Alan tweeted, "RIP @AugustAmesxxx you were a fan favorite on @girlswaynetwork, a friend to many in the industry and most of all a wife to my friend. You leave many in this world with a heavy heart and you left us far too soon."

Director Mike Quasar: "Love one another kids. 23 is way too young. Such a sad day."

The @HoloGirlsVR account tweeted, "Rest In Peace @AugustAmesxxx - one of our original HoloGirls, we mourn your passing and send our heartfelt condolences to all those that loved you."

Performer Kissa Sins: "You were always there for me when I was feeling sad or sensitive and I’ll always love you. I’m sorry I didn’t do more to help. RIP Auggie."

Ames, who was the September 2016 Vixen Angel, won the Fan-Voted AVN Awards for Cutest Newcomer (2015) and Most Spectacular Boobs (2017).

Prior to entering the adult biz she worked at a bar and a tanning salon.

She wouldn't do a scene with a faggot male porn star.  So the LBGTQ community attacked her for being homophobic.  Damn her for not wanting aids!  Stupid cunt. amiright?

People who kill themselves are doing the world a huge favor. Hopefully she was never bred.

I am something of a skeptic when it comes to blaming bullies when an adult pulls the plug.

Will withhold judgment here until the details are known though.

California where you can be bullied and harassed for not wanting to fuck gay dudes. But it's not illegal for a gay dude to knowingly transmit HIV without telling partners of  his status. Fuck those faggots.

Wouldn't want to be... Accused of being a bully, now would we?

Never saw any of her scenes, but this is a messed up story.

Hope you feel the same way if one of your loved ones did commit suicide.

She was pretty hot, she did something weird with her lips recently to make them look all puffy and dumb like a Kardashian...implants or something

But when she first showed up she was a legit 10
