She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me. Please leave this as a private family matter in this difficult time.

Ames recently came under fire for tweeting about not wanting to work with crossovers which are actors who have been in gay and straight porn. She tweeted, Youre 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 theyre representing? The tweet came across as homophobic and got a lot of backlash on social media, but she clarified that there are safety concerns for women working with crossover actors and she had nothing but love for the gay community. Many are saying her suicide was a result of the cyberbullying that ensued after the tweets.
