"He's A Homewrecker" is a website launched this week that's designed to publicly shame cheating men by posting pictures of their faces along with the embarrassing back-story of their alleged infidelities.

To date, the majority of posts on the site have been written by women looking to shame their exes, though a few are from men who have been cheated on.

The website is the successor of "She's A Homewrecker" -- a site for women to anonymously shame their husband's or boyfriend's alleged mistresses by posting their photos.

Both websites were created by Ariella Alexander (not her real name) who launched into the media spotlight last week after an appearance on ABC and receiving exposure on Jezebel with regards to "She's A Homewrecker".

Alexander created "He's A Homewrecker" to level the playing field for jilted lovers after being criticized for blaming the mistress and not the cheating man with the launch of "She's A Homewrecker" last week.

The problem with both controversial websites is that neither can verify the authenticity of the posts. Conceivably, a completely innocent person could be unfairly accused of philandering.

But this doesn't seem to bother Alexander, who doesn't believe she is legally liable should someone be wrongfully accused.

"I don't have a problem with what I do. As far as the stories? 30% of what I receive makes it to the website - unlike other sites similar in nature that post everything they received because we are not liable," she writes.

Alexander says she launched the initial website, which has more than 250,000 likes on Facebook, as a way to teach adulteresses a lesson.

"I hate to say it, but it can follow you for the rest of your life," she says of the mistresses. "You appear on Google, I mean, everyone now knows what you've done."

Dana Scott, 29, found her name and location plastered on the site three years after she had an affair with a married man.

"I looked at it last night for the first time in months and started bawling my eyes out," she says.

Since Scott was outed online a few months ago, she has been bombarded with insulting comments, derogatory names and even death wishes.
