A gay porn actor who had trashed adult film star August Ames on social media has fired back stating that he didn’t have anything to do with her death

According to this:

Ames, 23, was found dead last week from a suspected suicide in California just days after she was forced to defend herself against online critics who accused her of being homophobic.

Ames stated her reasons for choosing not to work with an actor who had previously shot gay porn.

But her remarks irked adult film star Jaxton Wheeler who wrote a threatening message on twitter.

‘The world is awaiting your apology or for you to swallow a cyanide pill. Either or we’ll take it,’ he wrote.

His tweet appears to have been published with Wheeler seemingly unaware that Ames has already taken her own life when he published his message.

The pair had previously been in touch on Twitter the day before her death, when Ames told Wheeler that she never said gay performers don’t get tested.

Wheeler is now feeling the backlash with one popular production company, Evil Angel, saying that he would never shoot a scene for them again.

Wheeler added that he has received death threats and was fired from two upcoming shoots.

Another former adult film actress Jenna Jameson also chimed in:

‘You told my friend August to swallow ancyanide (sic) pill…you are directly responsible for her death. I will not rest until you are deleted from social media all together,’ she wrote on Twitter.

According to the New York Daily News Wheeler defended himself Sunday as he explained that he was just upset that Ames was spreading false information about the gay porn industry’s STD testing regulations

‘The idea that I played any role in her decision is erroneous, as is the idea I demanded her death,’ he told the gay porn blog The Sword. ‘All adult professionals have the same screening and testing protocols. As a performer, she knew that, but she put it out there to her half-million Twitter followers who didn’t. Now they believed it. It struck a huge nerve.’

Wheeler released a lengthy statement in which he stated how he was ‘saddened’ by Ames’ death and admitted his language had been unnecessarily harsh.

‘I acknowledge that I responded with emotions and an unfortunate choice of words. None of my aggression was directed at August nor her ability to consent to who she decides to work with,’ he wrote. ‘My issue was with the misinformation that exists within the adult industry on crossover talent… I go through the same rigorous, regular testing all talent does.’

Wheeler performs in both gay and straight porn films, and identifies as pansexual, which means his sexuality is not limited to people of a particular gender identity or sexual orientation.

Although Ames’ initial tweet did not reference testing specifically, she implied that working with an actor who previously shot gay porn was a health risk.

‘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,’ she wrote on December 3.

In a final couple of tweets Ames addressed to the flood of internet trolls making similar comments.

‘NOT homophobic. Most girls don’t shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety. 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,’ she wrote. ‘F–k you guys for attacking me when none of my intentions were malicious. I f–king love the gay community! What the f–k ever! I CHOOSE who I have inside my body. No hate.’

In a suicide note that Ames apparently wrote before her death, she did not mention harassment and apologized to her family.
