Question Deceased Pornstars

Curious to know how you all feel about linking to or hosting pics/vids of deceased pornstars? We've had a couple pass on us the last few weeks (August Ames, Yurizan Beltran, Olivia Nova) and I'm always questioning if I should list or pull their stuff.

I don't go out of my way to display their galleries, as I feel trying to make money off their death is over the line ethically. But, that said, I don't remove their stuff from my database.

They did those scenes voluntarily so I see no reason to take them down, but I wouldn't try to capitalize on their deaths (like trying to take advantage of their increased attention in social media)

Oh, I'd never even considering posting that someone had died & linking to their galleries. That's just fucking wrong. I'm more wondering if you guys & gals continue to add their content is business as usual, or if you stop listing new stuff & remove the existing material.

Brazzers actually had an upcoming scene with August Ames the day after she died but canceled it and said they would post it at a more appropriate time..

I feel like there's no such time and it would feel weird anyways

I would probably still add their content, thou I would NOT know if I was doing it. It's rare that I can actually put a face to a pornstars name or remember that they passed away a month ago or more.

While typing this the following thoughts crossed my mind, so I will share:

Does the regular movie industry look back on fallen actors/actresses at award shows with a "In Memoriam" as a way to honor their past works? Do you stop watching their movies?
I still do and here is one as an example. Heath Ledger passed away sadly but I still enjoy the movies he did. Anytime I'm flipping channels and say "A Night's Tale" is playing I will leave it there and watch it. I have the DVD but it randomly showing up on TV is like receiving a nice surprise.

So the question is, are not adult stars actors/actresses? Should they not be honored for their works?

These are just questions and thoughts that popped in my pea brain.

I personally would not go out of my way to do a "Person X died so check out this content" kinda thing. But that is me. I don't think I would hold it against anyone that did.

JR just said what was on my mind.

There are not many faces I have a name on anyway, so my adding would be unaware.
I would not take advantage of the situation either, btw.

I'm thinking; If I pull stuff when a porn star dies, wouldn't that be some sort of saying "what you did was wrong, so I'll honor your memory by wiping it away"?
I think the world needs to respect and honor a star choice and work more. It's just to much "she's a slut" still. Unfortunately.

And to support JR's argument, I will still listen to the best Motorhead albums, although the classic line up now has left us.

I think it was a nice gesture by Brazzers btw, but that was a suicide, wasn't it?
The movie and record industry would have done the same. I hope.

Jolly

1 - I can probably only name 5 pornstars if I was given their picture, but names I do know. I look up pretty much every girl on FreeOnes to check their age, ethnicity, real or fake, popularity, etc.

2 - I do understand the regular movie version of this discussion, especially The Dark Knight & Heath Ledger thing, and my 1st thought was that I'm not trying to make money off Heath Ledger, I'm just enjoying his truly brilliant performance. But, after saying that, I realized that as long as I'm not trying to capitalize on their death by using it as a promotion tool, then I can feel fine about adding new links/content & leaving the existing stuff up there.

Thanks everyone

I don't treat them any differently than those that are living and breathing. I don't capitalize on them, but i certainly would not remove them or hesitate to add their galleries.
