Porn star August Ames has passed away at the age of 23.

The 23-year-old wrote: "NOT homophobic".

According to the Ventura County Medical Examiner she had hanged herself and was found in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Her cause of death is now unknown, and her husband said "She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me". Our hearts go out to August's friends and family during this extremely hard time.

Following her death, friends of Ames and others indicated she was suffering from depression and dealing with online bullying.

Ames was born Mercedes Grabowski in Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1994, and worked in a bar and at a tanning salon before joining the adult film industry in 2013, according to AVN. 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.

Ames's Twitter feed was littered in recent days with cyberbullies accusing her of being homophobic after she publicly chose not to work with an unidentified actor who had previously shot gay porn.

"On Sunday, Ames received a huge Twitter backlash for posting a tweet where she told the "(lady) performer" replacing her for a shoot with porn film company Erotica X that "you're shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn".
