Earlier this week, actress, model and LGBT activist Alexis Arquette passed away.

The cause of death remained unknown for several days, but it’s now being reported that Arquette died of complications from AIDS.

Though she was a sibling to famed actors Patricia, Rosanna and David Arquette, and appeared in such beloved films as Pulp Fiction and The Wedding Singer, little was known about the crises of Alexis’ final years.

Sadly, insiders say that due to her health problems, Alexis was unable to undergo gender reassignment surgery, a procedure she had planned on and hoped for for much of her life. 

Friends say during her last months, Alexis was “living in an Actors Fund home,” where she frequently feared for her safety.

Those closest to Arquette say her pride prevented her from taking help from her famous siblings.

Now, sadly, it seems that an associate of Alexis’ from those painful final years is making one last attempt at exploiting her.

Fortunately, in this case, an unlikely good Samaritan has stepped up to protect Alexis’ legacy and defend her privacy.

Insiders say a former lover of Alexis’ sold a sex tape to the porn site xHamster for an undisclosed fee this week.

In an unexpected move, the owners of the site promptly destroyed the footage.

Alex Hawkins, a spokesman for xHamster, shared the details of the site with The Daily Mail:

“Ms. Arquette was an icon and activist in the trans community and we could not see someone smear her memory the way the selling party was trying to do,” Hawkins said.

“We acquired the tape and subsequently destroyed all copies of it.”

He added:

“We hope people will remember Ms. Arquette for the activist that she was and that her memory will continue to live on.”

xHamster reportedly paid $ 25,000 for the tape.

It was an admirable move, as celebrity sex tapes are usually big business.

Sure, the site may benefit from the positive publicity surrounding this good deed, but any boost in traffic is sure to pale in comparison to the profits they would’ve made from the tape.

The situation is proof that there’s still some good in the world – sometimes in the unlikeliest of places.
