Back in January, 15-year old Giovanna Plowman became an internet sensation after posting a video sucking and eating a bloody, used tampon [see the video clip above]. The backlash was through the roof. Thousands took to Twitter to denounce the raunchy spectacle as the "Tampon Girl" soaked up her fifteen minutes of fame.

"Have you ever watched Jackass? Fear Factor? Jersey Shore? I know you all have. It's okay for them to get famous from eating and doing such stupid stuff or being sluts and partying hard. But i eat a tampon and get so much hate? It makes no sense. Just because I'm a girl and ate something gross and got famous you hate on me? I'm a real nice girl. Don't start drama... and I have only ever had one boyfriend? Please tell me how I'm a slut. Smh idgaf about you haters I'll shine on with or with out you!"

Now a mysterious report from the Internet Chronicle is circulating the Internet claiming Giovanna Plowman committed suicide after endless cyber bullying. Giovanna's Twitter account remains active, leading many to believe the suicide report is just another Internet death hoax.

Here's an excerpt from the alleged suicide report from Internet Chronicle:

"Just 48 hours into her new career as the Internet's most famous tampon-sucker, the ceaseless bullying of the heartless masses forced her to commit suicide."

Internet Chronicle didn't cite any credible sources in the report. Meanwhile a Facebook and Twitter account associated with Plowman continues to function as if the hoax never happened. She continuously posts updates bragging her upcoming appearances on Tosh.O, Ellen, and MTV.
