A famous porn star was reportedly found dead in Camarillo, California, on Tuesday, just days after her refusal to shoot a scene with an actor who had performed in gay pornography sparked an online firestorm.

The 23-year-old porn actress was then bombarded with allegations of homophobia. She defended herself in a series of tweets:

I don't have anything to apologize for! Apologizing for taking extra steps to ensue that my body stays safe? F**k you guys 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.

Ames posted her final tweet Monday that read, "f**k y’all.”

The Ventura County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed Ames's death but did not provide an official cause of death. Initial reports indicate she may have taken her own life.

Foul play is not suspected in the death of Ames, whose real name is Mercedes Grabowski. Her husband released a short statement asking for privacy.

“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,” he reportedly said.
