WARNING: Disturbing content

A New Zealand teenager's online antics with men have hit headlines around the world but her supporters deny any sinister intentions.

Reports about the woman, known as 'Poison Ivy', have been published in the Daily Mail and the Sun this week.

Her Twitter profile says she treats "all men like s*** because they are weak and they deserve it. I bully the weak to make them weaker as I simultaneously grow stronger".

The woman, believed to be 17, reportedly seeks men in online gaming communities.

A YouTube video has surfaced shedding light on the woman's activities and calling for victims to report her, the Daily Mail reports.

A man on the YouTube video said the teenager chose "weak, socially awkward guys who have never had a girlfriend or a social life", the Mail reported.

A man who contacted the Herald today said the woman was his girlfriend. He said the claims were false and libellous and lawyers had been contacted about the international reports.

The woman's Twitter account, which has over 900 followers, contains many images of men around the world declaring their love for her.

She convinces one man to shave off his beard and eyebrows, saying it will "look hot" but once he does it and asks if she likes it, she replies "Do you want me to be honest? No."

She adds: "I just wanted to see what you look like with no eyebrows."

She also encourages him to put his head down the toilet in another video.

The woman has several tweets referring to suicide.

"Romance is very stupid and everyone always breaks up in the end, or it ends some way or the other. And the only way to do it properly is for a couple to suicide together, because that way they will have been together forever, as they surely promised each other."
