Porn star August Ames was found dead of an apparent suicide Wednesday, one day after the adult actress was apparently bullied by social justice warriors on social media for explaining she would not perform in scenes alongside male actors who also perform in gay porn, due to health concerns.

Ames, whose real name is Mercedes Grabowski, “died of asphyxia due to hanging” in what has been ruled as a suicide, according to Ventura County, California officials. She was 23 years old.

Grabowski was bullied on Twitter after she announced her refusal to do porn scenes with gay porn actors, citing what she claimed was a higher likelihood of contracting HIV.

whichever (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow for @EroticaXNews , you’re shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn, just to let cha know. BS is all I can say🏽‍♀️ Do agents really not care about who they’re representing? #ladirect I do my homework for my body✏️🔍

Users quickly called Grabowski, who was bisexual, “homophobic” for her remarks, prompting the actress to further explain.

“NOT homophobic. Most girls don’t shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety,” Grabowski proclaimed. “That’s just how it is with me. I’m not putting my body at risk, i don’t know what they do in their private lives.”

How am I homophobic if I myself am attracted to women? Not wanting to have sex with gay men is not homophobic; they don’t want to have sex with me either👋 so byeeeee

Despite this, Grabowski continued to take heat from the growing online mob.

I’ll keep my opinion in my head next time and be fake👍🏽 https://t.co/wRRB33DneD

“Choose who YOU want to work with” “Don’t do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable”“Share your thoughts”

Hmm. Well, I did all three, and twitter took a dump on me🏽‍♀️

I don’t have anything to apologize for! Apologizing for taking extra steps to ensue that my body stays safe? Fuck you guys attacking me when none of my intentions were malicious. I fucking love the gay community! What the fuck ever! I CHOOSE who I have inside my body. No hate. https://t.co/7dSbq27K2F

Grabowski’s final post on Twitter declared, “fuck ya’ll,” before the actress apparently committed suicide.

fuck y’all

Following the news of her death, users who had attacked Grabowski on Twitter attempted to defend themselves, which prompted other porn actors and actresses to criticize the social justice mob that attacked Grabowski before her death.

My condolence for the family, friends and fans from @AugustAmesxxx it's really sad to hear she took suicide! But blaming me is really fucked up from you guys! I wasn't hateful to her at all! I've just said don't be stupid! We all refuse people just don't tweet about it! LM

Tweets regarding August Ames before and after her suicide. Fucked up. Bruce over here is still attacking her and she’s dead. With a “now you know how it feels” argument no less. Just wow. pic.twitter.com/71ETHC84K4

In light of today's tragic news Brazzers has decided to postpone the release of tonight's scheduled August Ames scene. The scene will be posted at a more appropriate time, as we come to terms with this devastating loss. Thank you for your understanding.

Former porn actress Jenna Jameson also revealed her own story of bullying from the LGBT community, proclaiming, “This mob mentality must end.”

I would like to point out the incredible amount of attacks that were made on me by the lgbt community when I voiced my opinion on a trans woman being in Playboy. I received death threats against me and my daughter. This went on for days. This mob mentality must end. #augustames
