Adult entertainer August Ames has been found dead in California, days after she got into trouble on the Internet about her comments on co-starring with a person who does gay porn.

23-year-old August Ames took her own life after she was branded "homophobic" on social media.

The Ventura County Medical Examiner's office confirmed her death to The Blast.

"She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me", said Kevin Moore, Ames' husband. He also requested for privacy during this hard time.

In the week of her death, Ames was branded a "homophobe" after writing on Twitter about not shooting a scene with an actor who had performed in gay porn.

Born Mercedes Grabowski in Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1994, Ames had found her way to the adult-film industry in 2013 following short stint in the food service industry as a bartender.

Between 2014 and 2017, Ames appeared in more than 120 productions.

French TV Host Nephael interviewing adult performer August Ames at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo at Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, NV, USA on January 21, 2016. 'Most girls don't shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety. "I'm not putting my body at risk, I don't know what they do in their private lives", she wrote.

Ames' final tweet, posted on Tuesday, simply said: "fuck y'all".

"Hmm. Well, I did all three, and twitter took a dump on me", she wrote. F-- you guys attacking me when none of my intentions were malicious.

The dailymail reported the actress subjected to a torrent of online abuse from cyberbullies after posting on Twitter under the social media handle, @AugustAmesxxx, that she would not be doing a scene with a male performer who had previously done gay porn.

Numerous figures in the porn industry were deeply shocked by the news of Ames' death, with fellow porn star Abella Danger tweeting: "She was the most kind-hearted person ever".

"A lovely life is GONE because people like to use their "fan base" to bully others because THEIR opinion doesn't agree with YOURS", she wrote on Twitter.

"Rest In Peace to August Ames, one of the best, nicest people I ever knew in the business", producer/director Jules Jordan tweeted. I CHOOSE who I have inside my body.
