Porn Star August Ames Dead Days After “Homophobic” Slur

ZW Breaking News: August Ames Dead at 23

August Ames (real name Mercedes Grabowski) has been found dead just days after she posted a tweet that was labelled as “homophobic” by many.

August has almost 300 adult film notches on her belt, so is no stranger to online criticism.

 

Authorities say there is no foul play suspected, leaving many to conclude that she has taken her own life by hanging herself as reports state asphyxiation was the cause of death.

News outlets are insinuating her suicide is related to intense bullying since Dec 4 when her tweet was posted.

This was her last tweet:

What do you guys think? Was what she said even that bad? Has any of the zw nation heard any other info on the circumstances surrounding her death?

    I couldn’t jerk off to this horse face.

    • Johnny "M'Fing" Drama

      Seriously? You’re gonna insult a girl who just hung her self?

      • El Hijo De Fistfight

        Get off your high horse, you admitted to trolling her instagram so hard she blocked you now you wanna white knight the hoe? GTFO.

  2. Nobody

    This is so tragic to hear. My sense is she had other emotional issues that just overwhelmed her.

  3. Mike Hunt

    Speaking of dead hookers, did the coroner ever confirm Kim Fattorini’s COD?

  4. AmericanTopTeam

    Wtf NOTHING she said was wrong…i agree you have the right when shooting no condom or even condom porn to know the other performer’s history… She had EVERY right to refuse to work with a man who has/had sex with other men

    • Seriously

      I agree. Just like in normal life a woman can decide that she doesn’t want to have sex or date a man who’s had sex with other men. I don’t get what the big fucking deal is lol

  5. AssholeConsulting

    Holy shit, this discussion board is probably the most philosophical ZW Nation has ever been. Someone should start penning a sequel to Plato’s Republic.

  6. €r2

    Got it. I should give up the idea of wanting to be a pornstar then lol

  7. €r2

    It is very sad.

  8. Johnny "M'Fing" Drama

    I haven’t commented on this website in months, but I knew this would be up on here. I trolled her on IG a year or two ago and I got blocked. I tried to go to her ig yesterday and found out I was blocked….now i honestly feel horrible because it just dawned on me that all these pornstars get treated like fucking shit all day long, and are constantly cyber bullied and made fun of. It’s hard to keep in mind that it’s what they do for a living, and that they are still people just like everyone else. They have emotions and feelings. However, another point that I want to bring up is that these people are not mentally stable. They’ve failed to adapt to human society, which is why they are in porn and can’t find real jobs. They should not be bullied. Period. They need as much of support as they can get. Slut shaming is wrong. I haven’t felt this bad in a long time. I know I’m not responsible for what happened, but I apoerantly contributed some to the years of bullying she’s received. So I’m done slut shaming pornstars and other women, I’m done talking down on them. This is a promise to Mercedes Grabowski (August’s real name) memory. I will no longer slut shame any porn star again.

    Oh, and ps. She was repeatedly molested by her grandfather when she was 12. She told her dad and guess what? He didn’t believe her and basically kicked her out of his family at the age of 12. He abandoned her, and surprise surprise, look who ends up in the porn industry at the age of 18 with long term depression? The cyber bullies didn’t kill this woman, her father did. This is a good picture of her.

    It’s incidents like these that remind me why we should all treat everyone and each other with respect and love. Hope you found peace and freedom from your demons August.

    • TJ

      Very well stated.

    • Mike Hunt

      Yeah, I’m sorry. I’m gonna have to disagree here. The ONLY job they could find is getting their ass gaped on film? They couldn’t waitress at a small French bistro while going to community college for Medical Assisting?
      It sucks to be abused, but it there’s plenty of women out there who handled it and didn’t enter porn.

      • Johnny "M'Fing" Drama

        I don’t think you understand what being molested at a very young age does to a woman. They grow up thinking completely different then anyone else at their age. There’s a reason for laws that protect minors. Sexual experience at an extremely young age can mentally damage someone. And yes. Since I trolled her god knows when, I feel like I contributed to her death, and it’s an awful guilty feeling. Like I said. I’m done with all this social media hate shit. Absolutely done!

      • Jabberwocky

        It’s nice to think like that, I guess, but the reality is far different. Child victims of abuse are self-destructive, and porn is just one way they self-harm – drugs, cutting, crazy, they do it all. It’s naivety on your part that they can just choose to move past the abuse and do rational things and make rational healthy choices – go talk to a therapist who specializes in child abuse about how easy it is for victims to just choose to live a normal life. I won’t insult you, as much as I want to tear you a gaping asshole right now, but I’ll give you a shot to go educate yourself, so you’ll stop making pissy judgemental statements like this.

    • Jabberwocky

      What a pretty girl. So sad. 23 is too young, whatever the reason.

  9. CHINCHILLA

    This is really the world we live in? A whore was bullied because she did not want to engage is sex with known homosexual actors. In choosing to do what she wanted with her own body she was criticized for being homophobic. Because if you are a whore you need to spread it for everyone equally. Since when did a whore not at least have a right to choose her own johns? Does being a whore give up your rights…can you not be “raped” as a whore…because you are a whore and you can’t legally claim / say No? A person taking their own life, especially at a young age, so long as said person is guiltless of any real horrible crime, is still a tragedy. This girl didn’t hurt anyone but herself….and she paid the ultimate price.

  10. Vicki Vallencourt

    Aspen Brookes was egging her on to hurt herself

  11. Bernie Sanders

    LMAO. Your an idiot. What inner city or rural part of the country are you from?! There are very inexpensive parts of new york and california to live in. To say most of america doesn’t have the financial means for gas money is laughable.

    • Happy Pants

      Your=possession
      You’re=you are

      Learn it. Live it.

      I live in one of the most expensive cities in the country. I’m middle class but this happens to be my hometown.

      You are our stupidest member. Anytime you comment it’s just bullshit on top of bullshit.

      You lack common sense and common knowledge.

      I won’t ban you bc I happen to believe in free speech but keep your ignorance to other members. I have no use for you.

      • Bernie Sanders

        This is coming from the idiot who called bullshit on august banging 230+ dudes. Learn to use google dumbass. I believe in free speech too.

        • Happy Pants

          Last comment to you and then I will start deleting all your future responses to me. Where did I call bullshit? I joked she didn’t know any of the people she fucked. Learn to read and comprehend.

          Holy shit, YOU’RE dumb.

      Most Americans have less than $2000 cash in the bank.

  12. TJ

    Social media is a great way for people to communicate and share information. But this story exemplifies the dark side of social media. Anytime a person kills herself as a result of publicly being bullied online it is a tragedy. And the fact that she did porn doesn’t make it any less tragic because she was a human being. With that I’m going to make fun comments on another thread.

  13. PC Principal

    Exactly!

  14. Unityyy

    Damn. I really feel for this girl. Porn and suicide go hand in hand. Who does that lifestyle really work out for long term? Jenna Jameson was supposed to be the ‘success’ story and even she managed to flush all her earnings and spiral into drug/alcohol addiction bad enough to lose custody of her kids forever. Stay in school ladies. One day you will lose your looks and using your vagina as an ATM isn’t any way to live.

  15. Tuco

    Hahah perfect. Not an asshole. Hers probably was well used though.

  16. PC Principal

    She’s done 230 movies some of those were 3somes and gang bangs so its safe to say august aimes had sex with 250+ guys its just simple math lol

  17. Happy Pants

    More Dark Happy Pants Observations:

    “Taking extra steps to ensure my body is safe”

    The irony is a bit thick.

  18. SDD

    Pretty good, and snarky, video discussing the story:

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SPI9Mk17OAs&feature=youtu.be

    The irony, I see, is that porn performers talk about first amendment rights, agency, and the like, and tried to “educate” her into performing with a gay/crossover performer, instead of allowing her to make her own choice. Pretty fucking hypocritical.

    • SDD

      Apparently she was molested by her grandfather as a kid, and suffered from bipolar depression. Sad!

      http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/porn-star-august-ames-revealed-depression-struggles-death-article-1.3683371

      • Happy Pants

        Yep. Most sexual dysfunctional people are. They are taught at a young age, that that is their value and the only way to receive “love”.

        It is sad. But refusing to seek help was on her.

        • SDD

          Agreed. I presume she was seeking help, but who knows.

        • Bernie Sanders

          Lol like seeing a therapist would make her forget her childhood and the fact that half the planet knew she was a whore

          • Happy Pants

            My point was if she had saught help instead of a porn career, she probably could have been a productive human being. Even after she had done porn. They don’t forget but they learn coping skills they were never taught.

            Quit being willfully obtuse. It’s annoying as hell.

          • Bernie Sanders

            Lmao! Your being obtuse!! If she was capable of being a productive human being she wouldn’t of gotten into porn. Colleges didn’t give her a scholarship or financial aid for a reason pornstars aren’t smart. Theres no coping skills to deal with the consequences from her line of work, therapists sell that lie so they can charge $300+ an hour.

          • Happy Pants

            Sexual promiscuity and intelligence have no correlation. If she hadn’t been molested by people she loved and trusted she most likely wouldn’t have gotten into porn. It’s not fucking rocket science.

            My issue with people is that you are not responsible for being molested, in any way. However, you are responsible for how you deal with it and move forward with your life.

          • Bernie Sanders

            You have a decent point which is why these situations are sad. Traumatic experiences like she went through are so damaging that no amounts of therapy would ever fix her sadly. Which is why pornstars binge drink and do a lot of drugs most of the time regardless if they reach out for help.

          • Happy Pants

            No. No one can “fix” your grandfather raping you for years. But no one can “fix” most emotional scars that we all carry in one way or another. The difference is, coping skills. Drugs/alcohol abuse is self medication. You can’t feel pain when you’re out of your head at all times.

            When you seek help, the coping skills are taught and you no longer need the crutch of self medication. But like everything else, you have to want it.

          • Bernie Sanders

            You really believe therapist can miracle workers….. that has not been the experience people i know have had in fact they regretted going and paying $300 an hour but hey if you believe therapy is so effective you should get some because you need help lol.

          • Happy Pants

            Last warning.

            I never said therapist. I said help. You took that to mean one thing. Because you assume-Because you’re not very bright.

            Really, you don’t have to keep proving it. It’s obvious

          • Luke Duke

            And…..torched! You worded that perfectly.

          • Luke Duke

            So classy and lady like HP. I would have went with eat a bag of dicks you pompous shithead.

    • Bernie Sanders

      LMAO As if anyone cares what a pornstar thinks!!

  19. MistaO

    Another sign that gay people REALLY want to force acceptance of their acts / lifestyles on everyone. She had a right, and perfect sense to deny screwing gay men.

    • Happy Pants

      That’s not cool. Most are normal human beings who just want to live their lives. Don’t take the extreme and assign it to an entire group of people.

      • o3mta3o

        Tho the language is crass, the point is valid. I wouldn’t martyr myself for political correctness.
        Something like 3/4 of HIV infections are among gay/bi men.

        • Happy Pants

          I’m not denying anyone the right to say no to anyone at anytime for any reason.

          I’m denying that there’s some gay agenda grand conspiracy.

          • Habib Fazil

            There sure is something going on. With a 3-5 percentage of the population (and even if that is out by 100%, at 10 percentage points) why is there the levels of pandering that we are seeing?

          • Happy Pants

            I don’t see the pandering. I see mostly just human beings wanting to be treated as such. Not this situation, just in general when it comes to gay rights.

          • o3mta3o

            Gotcha.

    • Habib Fazil

      Oh hell MTV has been pushing the gay agenda with “The Real World” since the 90’s, and the transgender for at least the last 5.

      Wondering where their next exercise in social engineering will lead???

    • Jabberwocky

      It’s not gay men, as a whole. She wasn’t refusing to have sex with gay men. This all was a subset, the gay porn actors known as “crossover” actors – they do guy/guy scenes, and guy/girl scenes (Guy/girl makes more money). I just read a whole lot of background on this. The crossover dudes don’t get tested, with some companies, because they wear condoms, and think that’s enough – and gloss over that while a guy can be positive, the test will show negative, because there’s a threshold where it will go from no to yes. They think it’s perfectly safe to perform with mainstream porn actresses. Nope. Mainstream actresses have to test before every scene, and one bad test shuts down the entire industry, which happened within the last few months. August was refusing to do scenes with this specific group of porn actors – which makes fucking sense! These are the guys who bullied her and accused her of being homophobic. A journalist was also interrogating her, and there’s talk that she was being threatened with being blacklisted.
      The good news is that fuckhead Jaxton Wheeler is being blacklisted now, Evil Angel posted that he’s never working for them again, along with some of the others. Most mainstream actors and actresses are on August’s side, and a lot of these crossover dudes are probably done, as far as their careers. Hopefully, this will force the crossover studios to start testing, and/or report them to the state and fed, who take a dim, dim view of such things.

  20. Digitus impudicus

    Omg, lol. Some whore who fucks and sucks on camera offed herself? Who gives a shit. And the puke that actually married it needs psychiatric help.

    Next.

    • Happy Pants

      Yeah, I can’t bring myself to give a shit either.

    • Bernie Sanders

      Exactly she’s had enough sex already to last 100 lifetimes lol. The average person only has sex with four different people in their lifetime.

    • Luke Duke

      She was still a person. Someone’s daughter or sister. Her being a whore doesn’t mean it wasn’t a sad situation.

  21. Happy Pants

    Honestly, I could give a shit.

    Porn stars are severely damaged human beings. I guarantee there was more going on then people reacting to her comment.

    If she wanted to go, good riddance.

    • Digitus impudicus

      “Stars” These whores are not “stars” they are merely spacewaste.

      • Happy Pants

        Im all for live and let live. You wanna fuck people on camera for money and all involved are consenting adults? Groovy.

        But can everyone stop pretending that these people aren’t mentally fucked in the head?

    • €r2

      They do not look severely damaged tho

  22. Vicki Vallencourt

    She didn’t say anything bad
    She meant that testing for gay porn is less rigorous but also gay porn is more high risk
    It was a health thing not a gay thing
    She was way misunderstood

    • PC Principal

      True and easily understandable but the PC mobs don’t have common sense.

      • Vicki Vallencourt

        Right? Anal sex has health risks. Flat out. HIV can be in your body and still not be noticed in a test for 6 months
        people just wanted to feel like they had a moral high ground so bad

  23. Stelio Kontos

    Unless I misunderstood the situation…

    The Super PC, Ultra Sensitive, SJW Crowd harrassed someone to the point of suicide? Because they saw her as being culturally insensitive?
    Umm…aren’t they also the anti-bullying crowd? They’re also free-speechers as well right?

    Fuckin hypocritical bullshit. No matter how liberal I think, I cannot identify with any group.
    What bothers me most is how sensitive people are these days. I hate how people go to social media to express how they’ve been hurt or offended by someone’s words.
    There is a “softening” in America…it was once progress and forward thinking. We’ve jumped the shark on social / cultural awareness to the point that we have no collective common sense.
    I never thought I’d sound like this…..

    • Happy Pants

      If people reacting to your very public stmts on a social media platform drives you to suicide, adios.

      She was obviously not mentally healthy.

      • Digitus impudicus

        She was married and fucked other dudes on camera for a living. Good riddance to trash.

      • PC Principal

        Thats safe to say considering she’s had sex with 250 different guys and some girls lol

    • PC Principal

      Thats why parents are afraid to send their kids to college nowadays and thrust them into a giant PC mob with communist and socialist ideals which haven’t worked anywhere on the planet. A lot of people who didn’t even like trump voted for him because of how out of hand colleges have gotten nowadays. You send your kid off to UC berkley and all that happens is they beat up a 18 year old for making a caitlyn jenner joke and vote for bernie sanders who would raise your taxes to 80%.

    • Luke Duke

      Welcome to the Republican Party. Now bring the rest of the PCM.

    • o3mta3o

      I never thought I’d see myself as right-of-centrer in social issues, but here we are…

  24. Dr.Christian Troy

    I don’t care what anyone says. There is NO such thing as a “normal” porn star. I’ve known a few and these chicks were more damaged than the Detroit economy in 2008. If it wasn’t for drugs and or psychological trauma, porn wouldn’t exist. Men like to spank it to these chicks so they rationalize that they are girls who are just “having fun” etc… If you sat in on therapy for these girls, it would be scarier than any of The Saw movies.

    • Stelio Kontos

      I think many get into it with an idea of what it will be like?

      “I will just make some money and quit”….”I won’t end up like those other girls”…”adult films is just how I’ll get my foot in the door”…etc etc

      At the end of the day, they almost all come to realization they are just fuckin for money. Only way to deal with that revelation is to ignore reality or turn to drugs (most do both)
      Nina Hartley still does scenes at 58. I actually believe it is by choice. But, for every Nina Hartley there are how many August Ames?

    • PC Principal

      I live in beverly hills and have dated a couple porn stars and they both got in the industry in the same way. Abusive family life with drugs use involved and at 18 the only way out considering there is no college is porn. Its either stay in the same rural town with no hope and jobs or start stripping, do porn or become one of hefners girlfriend

  25. Mallory Knox

    I don’t want to have sex with a guy who’s had sex with other dudes either. I’m just sayin

    • Stelio Kontos

      That doesn’t sound too unreasonable…

    • Bernie Sanders

      Im not homophobic or anything but i stay away from clubs in san francisco for a reason lol. I don’t want my drink roofied because i too don’t want to have sex with guys who bang other guys.

      • Happy Pants

        Yes. Because gay people only reside in San Fran. C’mon dude.

        • Bernie Sanders

          Ive traveled to 45 different states and hundreds of different cities for my marketing career. The cities with the most homosexuals by rank are.
          #1 San Francisco
          #2 Los Angeles
          #3 NYC

          Texas and Arizona have the least

          • Happy Pants

            Correction: Texas & Arizona have the most gays in the closet.

            Don’t worry dude, after talking to you for 5 minutes, ain’t nobody gonna be trying to roofie your ass…unless they want some peace.

          • Bernie Sanders

            Wrong!! If your gay the last place you’ll decide to live is a red state.

          • Happy Pants

            You know so little. The ignorance is apparent, yet you keep yakking your jaw about shit you know little to nothing about. Just because they aren’t out, loud and proud doesn’t change their orientation.

            It’s called life. Where you’re born. Where your friends and family are. Where you get accepted into school. Where you get a job. It’s not black and white.

          • Bernie Sanders

            I know more than you and its very apparent. Think about it dummy. If your gay and have a choice unless your an idiot you’ll go live wherever your sexual preferences will be most accepted.

          • €r2

            I thought second was Atlanta

        • PC Principal

          Not only SF but that is definitely their favorite city to reside lol. You go out in SF and the club could likely be almost entirely gays and asians

          • Happy Pants

            Oh nooooo! Not gays and Asians!!

          • PC Principal

            I actually like asian women ALOT so i wasn’t complaining lol.

          • Happy Pants

            I was just being sarcastic.

            As long as you’re not a blithering idiot, I’m cool with all types.

          • Habib Fazil

            Pretty much the same until “special privileges/treatment” pops it’s head up

    • Luke Duke

      Yeah that makes two of us lol

    • AmericanTopTeam

      Bingo. And you should have that right… I dont sleep with girls who sleep with other girls…my choice

  26. Bernie Sanders

    PC mania being on retarded levels nowadays definitely contributed to her suicide but considering she was so active in the porn industry and having sex with a different guy everyday was probably a bigger factor in her being bullied to death. August probably drove around in a new mercedes but was pointed out for being a slut everytime she left the house to go to the grocery store or movie theatre because of her life choices which she made at a very young and undeveloped age.

  27. PC Principal

    She’s canadian and canada is as PC as far left college campuses and comedians avoid those two places for good reason, its complete buffoonery how much danger they could put themselves in lol. She could get thrown in jail for those comments in her own home country so she probably got literally thousands of death threats. Its one thing to not want to put yourself at risk for STDs its another to tweet about it. Its like everyone with a brain wants border security and smarter immigration where we get the workers we need instead of criminals but I’m staying away from any of my friends who tweet their support for trump while I’m in blue states.

  28. Maia

    Why don’t people just log the fuck out? If people were giving me a hard time online, I’d log the fuck out!!!!

    • the real pintu

      It’s an addiction.

      • PC Principal

        An addiction to reading negative comments online…. people nowadays just forget there was life before Facebook and instagram and arguably that life was better and more productive

    • PC Principal

      I said the same thing when i watched the madoff movie on HBO. If bernie’s son was so upset by what people said about him online why not just stay off blog sites instead of hanging himself in front of his baby…..

      • Maia

        People solve their temporary problem with a permanent solution. It’s ridiculous.

    • Mallory Knox

      “When living for likes goes wrong; a cautious tale” coming to lifetime channel in 5…. 4……

    • AmericanTopTeam

      Yeah but we are normal…i used to mod an ign board…think 1000X detroit alyssa… I had my job contacted my address posted my family contacted..but i used to tell all the trolls…the x in the right corner makes you all disappear

  29. The_Truth_Hurts2012

    A woman can’t even decide what pricks she wants in her VJ?
    If you don’t fk’ me because I’m ********* you must be a **********
    Is that the new pickup line of 2017?

    • PC Principal

      You have a great point. People bullying a woman for refusing to have sex with someone even if its due to them not liking their ethnicity or sexual preferences is basically rape. Biology is racist after all we all have preferences when it comes to sex. I have guy friends who don’t date black women and female friends who don’t date asian men and I’m totally fine with it.

      • Dr.Christian Troy

        People bullying people is rape?!?!? C’mon Man, that’s lunacy

        • PC Principal

          Completely wrong!! Your twisting my words. Let me further explain. Its like if i tell everyone in person and online you hate black people for not wanting to have sex with venus williams. Its about bullying people for having a completely natural preference which we all have. It puts you in a situation where your either forced to have sex with black women which you don’t like or be labeled a racist which is rape.

      • Maia

        I wouldn’t fuck a guy who liked guys, sorry. Bisexual people sit on the fence. I don’t like fencesitters. Pick a fucking lane.
