What did she say?   Which porn stars were pissed at her?

Quite a few stars. Not gonna name names, but there were some directors and content creators involved as well. According to twitter, she was also having problems with her agency.

 

In terms of what she said, she said that she didn't want to work with a crossover star (in terms of gay to straight) because they have different testing standards and she was concerned about her safety. After that, she started receiving flack from a lot of people, calling her homophobic and stuff.

The tweet which seems to have stared everything

I'm not here to take sides. It is just tragic that one of my favorite performers has passed away, especially at such a young age (23).

It's bullshit that this all caused such a scuttlebutt and caused a bunch of performers to dogpile on her which probably she had a lot of bullshit on her plate, to the point that she was pushed over the edge. But I see it all the time on Twitter. All the petty bullshit. Finally it pushed someone too far.

So ....it could be argued that she was cyber-bullied by her co-workers into suicide....if it turns out it was suicide.

So now that she is dead....everyone is saying how nice she was ....I wonder if some of the people who are "boo-hooing' her death are some of the same people who tore into her on twitter?

It was primarily Alexis Monroe who attacked her. At least she started it.

I'm going to change what I said about Jessica Drake, because it doesn't seem like she was even trying to be rude and she wasn't directly mentioning August, so it's not fair or responsible of me to trash her about it, but she seemed to answer August. And some mope by the name of Jaxton Wheeler told her to swallow a cyanide pill...even though he's back peddling (initially he denied it until someone showed captures of the tweet) and trying to play it down. So Naughty America and Lauren...if you're reading. Don't book Jaxton Wheeler...ever

With today's social media, the smart play is to keep it to yourself who you will and won't work with.  I'm in no way excusing the people that bullied her, just in a general rule people should follow.  Just like it wouldn't be smart to say "I won't do interracial".

Agreed and well said. However, August Ames was also suffering from mental illness including bipolar disorder aka manic depression.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bipolar_disorder

Porn star August Ames revealed struggles with bipolar depression, family issues in interview before her death

Pornstar August Ames, who died of a suicide by hanging on Tuesday, revealed her struggles with bipolar depression and multiple personality disorder just months before her death.

"Some days I'll be fine and if I'm not doing anything I'll get these awful flashbacks of my childhood and I get very depressed and I can't get out of bed and cancel my scenes for like a week or two," Ames revealed.
