Clara Keffals Sorrenti, a well-known political commentator, trans-rights activist, and regular Twitch streamer, has won her battle against the site and is now mourning their deaths.
After launching a campaign to phase out the website, Keffals went live on September 5 with the title WE WON! #DropKiwifarms. She gave her final update on the situation.
I am now commemorating their deaths on the one month anniversary of Kiwi Farms swatting me. Josh, please eat shit.
Keffals' repeated swatting attacks on the streamer began exactly one month ago, and as a result, the organization launched a #DropKiwiFarms campaign, with the aim of preventing the closure of Kiwi farms.
Keffals posted a thread on Twitter just a few days before she went live, highlighting that a Kiwi Farms user had been accused by German authorities for cyberbullying, cyberstalking, hacking, doxing, hate speech, and minority persecution.

Keffals revealed that among other topics she discussed, she discovered that this was actually a scam and that it had been done solely for attention.
Erin Reed, another activist and content creator, revealed that Keffals' creator admitted to defeat in a lengthy statement that he made on September 4, although he claimed that the problems he was facing had nothing to do with the campaign or the surrounding circumstances.

During the livestream, Keffals confirmed what she had previously stated on Twitter and officially declared in front of her gathered streamers: We did it. We actually did it.
Keffals explained that they had officially slashed Kiwi Farms, and that her fight and campaign against them had succeeded.
The Twitch streamer and activist then went into further detail and explained that as the author of Kiwi Farms points out, the Russian company Kiwi Farms had tried to switch to after their original shield service dropped them but also ended up dropping them in less than a day. The capture provider Kiwi Farms used also dropped them, and Keffals explained that her campaign was successful and the site is finally finished.
Even if they get the website back, they have no way to protect against DDoS attacks.
Ellen Murray, a Twitch streamer and activist known as EllenFromNowOn, joined Keffals for the happy livestream, where she proclaimed the evil to be defeated.
The duo then presented a DDoS-Guard official statement that Kiwi Farms was attempting to use before they were dropped by the company. The website stated that it received many complaints claiming that it violated the DDoS-Guard Acceptable Use Guidelines and therefore decided to terminate their contract with Kiwi Farms.
EllenFromNowOn explained that even if they try to recover from a funk, they do so with no protection. While alive, the duo also realized the firm was in dire need of more web hosting. The now-infamous creator of Kiwi Farms also lost his web hosting.
After she learned this, Keffals enthused about the state of Kiwi farms. No host, no DDoS protection, nothing.
Keffals explained that she hopes that Kiwi Farms' demise will prevent similar harassment attempts from happening again in the future. Due to how her campaign and campaign against Kiwi Farms went, and that in less than seven days they managed to demolish it, the streamer and activist star expects others to be discouraged from spreading hate in a similar manner.
Keffals said, "I hope this gives you some satisfaction." She hopes that all others who experienced the same types of harassment, doxxing, and swatting as she did will now find some peace.
Keffals is quite confident that following the Kiwi Farms creator's decision following her protest against the troll website.
