Following the recent doxing and swatting of Twitch streamer Keffals, people are demanding that Cloudflare, which provides security services to websites, stop offering its services to Kiwi Farms, the forum that she alleges organized the swatting. Swatting refers to the dangerous and sometimes fatal internet harassment tactic in which someone pretends there's an emergency at their target's home, prompting police to send a SWAT team.

Streamer Clara Sorrenti, also known as Keffals, was raided at home and arrested on August 5. She claimed that users on Kiwi Farms, a notorious message board with a history of targeting and doxing vulnerable people, organized the raid and continued to harass her and numerous others.

Cloudflare has not responded to Motherboard's multiple requests for comment.
