“I want my sister’s death to be recognised as a serious issue – bullying is not ok,” he said.

“It cost me my baby sister’s life.

“I will do what I can be a voice for Mercedes (real name) but right now my family and I need to be left alone to grieve – we have lost a loved one.” 

August appeared in well over 270 pornos, but was recently the subject of a vicious attack online after she voiced concerns about working with an actor who had also starred in gay adult films.
