Kiwi Farms, formerly known as CWCki Forums, is an American Internet forum dedicated to the discussion of online figures and communities it deems "lolcows" (people who can be "milked for laughs"). The targets of threads are often subject to doxing and other forms of organized group trolling, harassment, and stalking, including real-life harassment by users.

In 2013, American video game developer Chloe Sagal became a Kiwi Farms target after Eurogamer reported Sagal's Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign had been flagged for "suspicious activity". Sagal had raised over $30,000 on the platform for metal poisoning treatment to remove shrapnel from a car accident, but Eurogamer reported that Sagal had actually intended to use the proceeds for sex reassignment surgery. Sagal later died by suicide via self-immolation on June 19, 2018, (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

A forum which originated out of 4chan and somehow manages to be 10 times worse than 4chan purely because it is dedicated to doxxing, harassing and making fun of people. The people they go after, they refer to them as a 'lolcow'. Originally created to laugh at one infamous Chris Chan but has grown like a cancerous tumor and has also been responsible for the deaths of some people (Source: www.urbandictionary.com)

Site

The renaming came after the site shifted focus from not just discussing Chandler, but any online figure or personality that users classify as "lolcows" — in other words, people who could be "milked for laughs," usually without their knowledge or awareness.

Because of this premise, the site can be seen as being a part of that weird underbelly of the internet. It's not necessarily as horrible as you might think, though--most people there no longer believe it's funny to troll Chris Chan, and a lot of the time they're protective of him in a way. As I write this, many users there are currently mad that a couple of people have been extorting money out of Chris.
