Porn star commits suicide after bullying for refusing to have sex with gay porn actor

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

August Ames, a 23-year-old rising star in the adult film industry, died Tuesday in California. The Ventura County Medical Examiner said Ames died of asphyxiation.

She had tweeted on December 3:  "Whichever (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow for @EroticaXnews, you’re shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn, just to let cha know. BS is all I can say.  Do agents really not care about who they’re representing? I do my homework for my body."

The tweet garnered an onslaught of negative responses.

She later responded: "NOT homophobic. Most girls don’t shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety. That’s just how it is with me. I’m not putting my body at risk, I don’t know what they do in their private lives."

But the negative responses kept coming.

After Ames’ death, fellow porn stars came to her defense and slammed the online mob bullying her.
