Porn star who was trolled online for posing nude at the George Floyd mural is found dead

A porn star who was trolled online after she posed for a topless photo at a George Floyd mural in Santa Barbara has been found dead at her home.

Lauren Kaye Scott, 27, who is known in the porn industry as Dakota Skye, was discovered by her boyfriend on Wednesday at their motorhome in Los Angeles.

Social media users took exception to the controversial image, with one writing: ‘This is some serious disrespectful bulls*** Lauren.’

Another said: ‘wtf what does flashing have to do with George Floyd death.’ 

The porn star defended the tone-deaf photo by claiming that she was ‘celebrating BAD cops being checked with abusing there authority against human beings … hello.’

She added: ‘No human being should die getting arrested.’ 

George Floyd was killed by former police officer Derek Chauvin Minneapolis in May 2020. Protests erupted across the country after Chauvin pressed his knee on Floyd’s neck for several minutes while the man was handcuffed. Chauvin was later convicted of murder and is awaiting sentencing.

The cause of Scott’s death has not been confirmed, but her aunt told the US Sun that her niece had struggled with alcohol and fentanyl addiction.  

She said: ‘Her real life story and how she came to be in that industry, has truly been a tragedy.

The porn star once told Adult Video News: ‘Awards are always nice, but being able to do what I love and give back to the people who love it are reward enough.’ 

Scott appears to have been struggling with her personal life in the years leading up to her death. In 2017, the adult entertainer was arrested for hitting her then-boyfriend in the face when he asked her to leave his apartment after sex. 

Her aunt Linda added: ‘She was stalked by demons like no one will ever understand unless you’ve lived it. 

‘She no longer has to walk through this world in pain in her own prison and that gives me comfort to know she no longer has to fight the voices and images that haunted her.

‘She was an addict and an alcoholic. But really all she was doing was searching for love, someone to care about her.

‘I was so scared about her. She was in so much pain. I thought she was going to make it. She had been clean for weeks.’

He tweeted: ‘RIP Dakota Skye, you are in our thoughts, our hearts, and prayers Our thoughts and prayers are also going out to her family.
