[email protected] y’all’ Shirts at 2018 Xbiz Awards Honor August Ames, Protest Jessica Drake

 

Los Angeles, Calif. — Late porn star August Ames‘ memory was honored at the 2018 Xbiz Awards, Thursday, by adult film performers who boldly wore shirts displaying the last words Ames tweeted before taking her own life: “fuck y’all.”

Katrina Jade and Jessy Jones, both contracted to Evil Angel (as is Ames’ husband Kevin Moore), wore the shirts in response of Xbiz’s decision to allow jessica drake to host the awards despite her role in cyberbullying Ames.

Following Ames’ death, Xbiz faced a large backlash from performers and commentators alike, who publicly demanded drake step down. Some stars, such as Jessa Rhodes, boycotted the show.

“The industry needs to take a stand against bullying … we won’t let the world forget August or what happened to her,” Jessy Jones said.

Jones also noted that while their shirts were embraced by performers in attendance at the 2018 Xbiz Awards, they were not appreciated by the show’s organizers.

    Sam, welcome back.

    As far as the shirts, that was an excellent idea — whomever came up with it is better at making political statements than I. These shirts were probably a better idea than boycotting the show, if 90% of the audience had shown up and winners accepted their awards while wearing them it would have made one hell of a statement that bullying people into fucking crossover talent is no longer acceptable. Katrina Jade’s middle finger was a bit too much, though unless Jessica Drake herself took that picture. To Jessica and that gay Jaxton guy that started all of this and drove August into suicide, fuck you and go fuck off!

    You left out the best part of the story, they tried to kick her for dress code violations when Abella Danger showed up in blue jeans and dirty sneakers.
