August Ames death: Is this why adult film star, 23, died?

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

The Ventura County Medical Examiner confirms Ames passed away Tuesday in Ventura County at the age of 23.

Camarillo police said that Ames was pronounced dead at the scene, noting there had been no indication of foul play.

Just hours before her demise, Ames told her social media followers that she won't apologize for stating her stand on the issue loud and clear.

In recent days, Ames' Twitter feed has been littered with cyberbullies accusing her of being homophobic after she publicly chose to not work with an unidentified actor who had previously shot gay porn. Nong Nat, 31, was a former x-rated star after featuring in dozens of adult movies including Tokyo Hunter and Asian Heart.

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. "Someone who liked & would have even called a friend!"

"Missing the very important fact that NO ONE has the right to tell you who to have sex with. Sorry, that's homophobia sweetie".

She defended herself again after a user responded to the tweet urging her to apologize. She further said that she loves gay community and her intentions were not malicious.

One tweet read: "NOT homophobic". 'Most girls don't shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety. I just can't believe it. RIP. I'm not putting my body at risk, i don't know what they do in their private lives'. "No hate", she wrote in another tweet.

Ames was married to adult film director Kevin Moore.

31-year-old porn star Asa Akira has starred in over 500 porn films.

"I would get in contact with some people and then I would feel badly because they'd be like "what's your profession and I'd be like 'oh I'm in the adult industry, '" she said in reference to her search for a therapist, "Then I'd feel like they're like 'oh that's the whole reason that you are the way you are" and then I'd get turned off", she said.

Adding, 'Please leave this as a private family matter in this hard time'.

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.
