Jaxton Wheeler is Taking a Break From Social Media After August Ames Backlash

Porn star Jaxton Wheeler received a ton of backlash over his tweet that he sent to 23-year old  August Ames prior to the world knowing of her suicide (edited on 1/2/2018).  He said  in a tweet ""The world is awaiting your apology or for you to swallow a cyanide pill.  Either or we'll take it." 

 

 

This was in reference to her tweet that she wrote saying that she didn't want to work with a man who has done gay porn, her reasoning being her safety and that she didn't want to put her body at risk. 

He apologized about the incident in an exclusive with The Sword, saying "I am saddened a fellow model is gone. My intention was to bring about a conversation about the stigmas and issues talent like myself deal with every day. I acknowledge that I responded with emotions and an unfortunate choice of words."

On his Twitter today (which he removed his photo and has a purple background now), he announced that he will be taking a break from social media as he wants to focus on the support of his friends and family.

He followed up that post with a quoted tweet about an article in Newsweek about the incident between him and August, saying "Thousands of apologies won't change anything, me myself has reevaluated every part of me but we can all still do better going forward to use this as something honorable in the memory of this tragedy."

 

 

August received a ton of social media backlash prior to her passing, and it looks like a lot of that has been passed onto Jaxton.  Will we ever see a day where we can use social media as a way to not combat but argue effectively with one another? 


Update - Jan 2, 2018

We have edited the post above after being threatened by someone stating they are associated with Wheeler.  We had stated ... Porn star Jaxton Wheeler received a ton of backlash over his tweet that he sent to August Ames prior to her committing suicide.  See the edit above. The statement sent to us, via email was;

You guys need to correct everything you've said about Jaxton Wheeler and August Ames. His tweet was after she killed herself and that's been proven, Yet you idiots are still saying it was posted before. Jaxton and I have a lawyer on this case against all who are trying to Slander him. Get it corrected or I send all the screen shots I have.

We have no idea if this is an obsessed fan or someone who actually knows Wheeler or represents him (actually it's an escort from Tampa, Florida that claims to be Wheeler's wife), but since we don't care to be called idiots or poopie pants or bahstahds and we dislike other threats as well as lawyers, we have edited this post and the title of another one.

His tweet was sent after she killed herself. LEAVE JAXTON ALONE AND FIX UR FUCKING NEWS STORY TO THE FACTS! She was found dead before he even made his tweet and that's been proven. Take this lying shit off the internet before I (HIS WIFE) send this to our lawyer...

JAXTON WHEELER (WHICH IS ONLY HIS PORN NAME-NOT HIS REAL NAME), IS A LIAR AND THIEF.  I KNEW HIM PERSONALLY FOR YEARS FOR SEXUAL ENCOUNTERS AND JUST HANGING OUT.  HE STOLE $600 CASH FROM ME AND THEN MOVED TO ARIZONA. THIS WAS SOMEONE I TRUSTED AND WAS VERY COOL WTH FOR YEARS AND HE ENDED IT THAT WAY WHICH REALLY SHOWS SOMEONE'S TRUE SELF.  HE HAS A FEW X-GIRLFRIENDS AND CHILDREN FROM EACH OF THEM.  I KNOW THEM ALL PERSONALLY AND THEY CAN CONFIRM ALL OF THIS AND MORE OF HOW HE REALLY IS.  HE SHOULD FOCUS ON SUPPORTING HIS CHILDREN AND STOP TEARING DOWN OTHER PEOPLE.  LOOK IN THE MIRROR MAN.
