"A US porn star who sparked an online firestorm over tweets about working with men who had appeared in gay adult movies has died.
August Ames, 23, who starred in more than 270 films and twice won at the Adult Video News Awards, passed away in Camarillo, California on Wednesday, the Ventura County Medical Examiner confirmed. Police told local media her cause of death was still being investigated but was not being treated as suspicious.
In a statement, her husband and director Kevin Moore said: “She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me. Please leave this as a private family matter in this difficult time.”
Ms Ames, originally from Canada, was earlier this week branded a “homophobe” after revealing she had pulled out of an adult film after finding out her co-star was a “crossover”."
