I was very sad to hear the passing of one of the most naturally beautiful pornstars in the business. Like most porn fans, I found out this terrible news via Twitter.
Rumours started circulating in the afternoon of 6th December 2017, and were verified by various adult entertainment outlets by the early evening.
Early indications were that she had unfortunately taken her on life after alleged online bullying by other porn performers who claimed that August made homophobic tweets.
From what I could see from her twitter timeline, August had declined to work with male cross-over porn performers. These guys work in gay porn industry as well as straight porn. August explained that she did not feel comfortable working with guys that she did not know enough about.
There was a huge out pouring of love for August immediately after the news broke. There was also a large amount of accusations and anger towards the alleged perpetrators of the online abuse that August suffered.
For me, I will always remember August as a beautiful pornstar with an incredible body. It always bought a smile to my face when I saw that Brazzers or MOFOS were releasing a new scene featuring August Ames. I was also surprised to find out that she was only 23 years old. Because of her on screen presence and confidence, I wrongly presumed she was older than that.
It's such a shame that online abuse has resulted in such a tragic outcome.
