Adult film star August Ames dies after backlash for ‘homophobic’ tweet

Her tweet offended some people causing Ames to defend herself by saying the issue was a matter of safety in the industry.

“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,” Ames tweeted. “How am I homophobic if I myself am attracted to women? Not wanting to have sex with gay men is not homophobic; they don’t want to have sex with me either so byeeeee.”

Some people have attributed her death to the cyberbullying she received for her tweet.

She was mourned on social media by many adult film industry friends shocked at the news.

Ames is survived by her husband, film director Kevin Moore.
