AWARD-WINNING porn starlet August Ames has died at the age of 23, plunging the adult industry into shock.

The Ventura County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed the death of Ames, whose real name was Mercedes Grabowski, but declined to give a cause pending notification of family members. A public information officer of the agency told International Business Times that the "manner" of the death is "suicide".

On Dec. 2, August had complained about having to do a scene with a male adult film actor who had done a gay scene, which ignited a tense back-and-forth between her and those who claimed she was being homophobic.

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

Close friends had said that she was prone to depression, according to The Blast, but the online abuse she received may have triggered her suicide.

American star Abella Danger, 22, wrote: "She was the most kind-hearted person ever". I CHOOSE who I have inside my body.

Following the post, Ames was accused of being homophobic, as social media users clamored for her to issue an apology. She defended herself, pointing out that she liked women, and said she was merely making a decision on who she has sex with, noting it is "my body, my choice".

The site reported Ames being 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. That's just how it is with me. She had tried defending herself, saying, she was "taking extra steps to ensure my body is safe", but was condemned by her fans. F**k you guys attacking me when none of my intentions were malicious. I fucking love the gay community! She won the Adult Video News (AVN) Awards twice, in 2015 and 2017.
