A male porn star at the centre of a row over the death of adult performer August Ames has been dropped by a leading studio. Toxicology reports are still being conducted, so no official cause of death has been revealed, but there is no evidence of foul play. Police did not give a specific location on where the 23-year-old had died.

After facing criticism for her comments she later added: 'NOT homophobic. A public information officer of the agency told International Business Times that the "manner" of the death is "suicide".

Anikka Albrite wrote: "Omg, I can't believe she's dead".

Earlier this month, Ames refused to film a sex scene with an actor who had previously starred in gay porn. "Someone who liked & would have even called a friend!" "BS is all I can say Do agents really not care about who they're representing?" I CHOOSE who I have inside my body.

'NOT homophobic, ' she said in response to the accusations. 'Most girls don't shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety. I just can't believe it. RIP. She also said that she didn't want to put "my body at risk".

I don't have anything to apologize for! Apologizing for taking extra steps to ensure that my body stays safe? She further said that she loves gay community and her intentions were not malicious. What the fuck ever!
