R.I.P. Mercedes "aka" August Ames

Yesterday morning AVN reported that August Ames passed away from an apparent suicide. She was 23. EDIT: Official cause of death: Suicide by hanging

She had made some comments about backing out on a scene and that her agent had not disclosed the fact she would be working with a crossover performer. She actually mis-worded her tweet and it seemed as though she was backing out because the talent had worked with gay performers in the past. The reality of the situation is she was upset about not being told as she has worked with crossover with other crossover talent. The backlash was intense and it looks as though it was too much for her to handle. Personally.....one would think these girls have a little thicker skin then this and to me there has to be more to the story (history of depression maybe) Over the next few days i'm sure it will come out if there were other factors in play.

Here's a few articles from Sean over @ TRPWL along with the original tweet and the backlash that ensued.

I'm sure we will be hearing lots more from those in and out of the industry regarding bullying and taking things to far on social media.

Edit: My condolences go out to her husband, director Kevin Moore, her immediate family and close friends at this sad time. Hopefully she is in a better place on the other side. I always felt an odd connection with Mercedes being both from a small town in rural Nova Scotia Canada. She always had one of "too pretty for porn" looks and I hope she has found peace. Mercedes G*******-M****** was 23 at the time of her passing. Godspeed everyone.

R.I.P
great August Ames. A warning for all to take depression as a serious illness. I lost also a beloved family member to sucide. Hard, hard... :(
