Ames was facing loads of abuse on Twitter after it became public knowledge that she declined doing a scene with a performer who had previously done gay porn.

Ames posted the following on Twitter: ‘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.’

Per Daily Mail:

Ames claimed that medical testing was different for straight vs gay sex scenes, and did not want to participate. 

Some male performers in the adult film industry do both gay and straight scenes for extra money, a practice known as ‘crossing over.’ 

According to the Daily Beast, the practice is relatively common but fairly taboo. 

A majority of female performers are apprehensive about doing scenes with male co-stars who have a history of gay pornography in their resume, believing it exposes them to a higher risk of contracting HIV.   

Following the post, Ames was accused of being homophobic, as social media users clamored for her to issue an apology.  

Despite this being a safety move, she was ruthlessly attacked on Twitter:

Ames defended herself:

‘NOT homophobic,’ she said in response to the accusations. ‘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.’
