Christine Weston Chandler, a.k.a. Chris-Chan, CWC and formerly known as Christian Weston Chandler, is a YouTube vlogger and creator of the webcomic Sonichu. Since late 2007, Chandler became a trolling target by Encyclopedia Dramatica, 4chan and Kiwi Farms who frequently mocked her artwork and online behavior. In late July 2021, Chandler went viral online over a controversy involving alleged incest between them and their elderly mother.
While attending college, Chandler was expelled for a year after attempting to find women by posting signs in public places. Over the course of this expulsion, Chandler began work on the first issue of Sonichu, completing it in March of 2005. Although it had originally focused on the Sonichu and Rosechu characters, the comic eventually turned the focus toward her life.
Discovery on 4chan
Although she had had an online presence since at least 1999, Chandler was not targeted by 4chan until 2007 when a drawing of Sonichu was posted on the imageboard. Chandler's comics, website and YouTube channel were subsequently discovered. Chandler subsequently uploaded a video addressing her new followers, informing them that she is a high-functioning autistic (shown below).
Megan Schroeder / Adam Stackhouse / ED Sagas (2005-2011)
Megan Schroeder was a real-life friend of Chandler's whom she had met in 2005. In 2007, Chandler entered the Chop Chop Master Onion's Rap Showdown, a Sony-held contest promoting the PlayStation Portable version of PaRappa the Rappa, which some speculated was an attempt to woo Schroeder. At the same time, a man named Adam Stackhouse created an entry with his sister which ultimately won first place (shown below, left). Chandler, dejected, accused Adam of cheating to win, to the point that she made a video of herself shooting a picture of Adam (shown below, right). Megan told Chandler that she was glad she lost and was disturbed by Chandler's obsession with her.  Despite this, the two were still friends until March 2008.
Soon after the creation of the Encyclopedia Dramatica article, Chandler discovered it for herself. Distressed by the amount of negative attention toward her, a large amount of bizarre sexually themed troll art on the page and a blurry photo taken of her without her consent, she declared war on the website, denouncing it as "slander". She went on to start a flame war by creating several sockpuppets, attempting to write herself in a positive light, blanking the page, deleting sections of the article, getting into arguments on the talk page for the article, and uploading her own Rule 34 images, including a pornographic image Chandler had drawn of herself engaging in a sexual act with Schroeder named "ShecameforCWC.jpg." After discovering, Schroeder reportedly broke off communication with Chandler. In July of 2008, Chandler uploaded a video to vent her anger to the trolls and clarified that the woman in ShecameforCWC.jpg was Schroeder and not her fictional daughter as some had theorized (shown below).
Blanca / Jimmy Hill Sagas (2008-2009)
Blanca Weiss was an identity taken on by several catfish trolls in 2008. The first trolling attempts were shared by three internet users who contacted Chandler via instant messaging and telephone. The saga culminated with Chandler sending the Sonichu medallion she wore at the time to one of the three trolls, Ickeriss69, who destroyed it on camera (shown below).
In September 2008, the second trolling attempt was carried out by Encyclopedia Dramatica troll Lordsillynipples, who claimed to obtain pornographic photographs from Chandler.
Around the same time of the Blanca saga, another troll, under the guise of English association football personality Jimmy Hill, claimed to be the true creator of Sonichu and that they had turned the series into a successful franchise in the United Kingdom. Chandler, offended by the portrayal of the Sonichu universe in Jimmy Hill's version (Sonichu as a homosexual, Chandler as an evil robot, etc.), as well as the supposed plagiarism of her work, addressed her several times. On October 13th, Chandler addressed Jimmy more directly (shown below, right). By February of 2009, Jimmy's site was no longer being updated.
The Clyde Cash Sagas (2008-2010)
Clyde Cash is a pseudonym for a troll who is considered to be Chandler's arch enemy. In December of 2008, Clash claimed that his younger brother, Ryan Cash, killed himself when Chandler spontaneously announced she would stop publishing Sonichu. Cash began to harass Chandler several times, and Chandler responded with an apology video towards Cash (shown below, left). Around this time Chandler drew an image of her new "sweetheart" named PandaHalo, who Cash, as an act of revenge on Chandler, told her he had raped PandaHalo who in turn supposedly became pregnant. She later posed as a Nintendo web designer named Gregg Mays in order to take a hold of his website and blackmail her into making a video stating she was gay.
After that, she impersonated Nintendo game director Shigeru Miyamoto and Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, convincing Chandler that a Sonichu game was considered and rejected by Nintendo. Chandler also uploaded a video directed towards Miyamoto in a bid to prove to him that she is the real Christian Weston Chandler, and not a troll (shown below, left). Later, Clyde was able to troll Chandler in real life by not only getting another individual, Robert Simmons V, to act similar to Chandler and actually talk to him, but by sabotaging a date with another girlfriend (who turned out to be another real-life troll) via sending a man in a pickle costume to the same location as the date. Clyde was claimed to be killed on May 22, 2009, though this was later proven to be false. The image of Lee Hotti became associated with Clyde after Lordsillynipples, the same troll who impersonated Blanca, told Chandler that this was what Cash actually looked like. In March of 2010, Chandler would upload a video in which she addresses her rage to many trolls, specifically Cash, and goes so far as to play out a scenario in which the two of them meet, ending in Cash's death. The video has since been removed.
Bluespike / Julie Saga
BlueSpike was a troll who met Chandler in December 2008, under the alias of Julie, a girl who wanted to be Chandler's girlfriend. Over the course of their relationship, Bluespike claimed to have used the alias to lead Chandler into making a video of herself performing a sex act on an inflatable while yelling Julie's name. 
During this time, BlueSpike assumed another identity under the alias of Max, claiming to be Julie's younger brother while still maintaining the Julie persona as a separate character. Over the course of an hour in March 2009, Max managed to get into Chandler's PlayStation Network account and threatened to sell it on Ebay and stop Chandler from seeing Julie altogether, unless Chandler said "Billy Mays is the mayor of CWCville," whilst putting her Sonichu medallion into her anal cavity.
In March 2009, Chandler met another troll by the name of Ivy who Chandler believed was her girlfriend until later that year. The result of Ivy trolling Chandler resulting in her implementing her as a character into Sonichu and many videos about her declaring her love for her, in the form of music videos, sexual content, and later, a marriage proposal. 
The saga officially came to an end in July 2009 when Chandler learned that 'Ivy' had committed suicide, which she would later reference in the Sonichu comic as a tribute to her. 
Liquid Chris / Kacey Sagas
Liquid Chris was a troll who appeared in late June of 2009, claiming that Chandler was an impersonator and that he was the real Chandler.  He was able to bait Chandler into reacting to him, and soon after a "CWCivil War" trying to prove who was the real Chandler-chan broke out between the two, despite Liquid being an obvious imitator. The highlight of this was a karaoke competition, which the real Chandler later retracted after losing.  After a two-month-long period of inactivity, Liquid's at the time supposed girlfriend Kacey managed to gain contact with Chandler, and pretended to almost be tricked by Chandler into going to his house.  She pretended to break up with Liquid until she "learned" that Chandler was tricking her. Liquid ended his trolling on November 6th with a video saying that he was given permission to marry Kacey. 
Asperchu / CWCipedia Sagas
Asperchu is a Sonichu parody comic written by Alec Benson Leary, first released on December 4, 2009.   Chandler discovered the comic soon after being sent several homoerotic pieces of artwork featuring the Sonichu and Asperchu characters.  On January 19, 2010, Chandler posted a twelve-page portion of Sonichu featuring the Asperchu characters not only being saved from Alec but also being rewritten into versions of themselves less insulting to Chandler, along with an ultimatum insisting that these incarnations were now Asperchu canon.  Chandler soon apologized for the trouble she was causing.  This was, however, seemingly taken back, as Chandler soon after uploaded the final pages of Sonichu #10, depicting Alec and the staff of his Asperchu wiki being brutally murdered in various ways. 
The Surfshack Tito and CWC Exile Sagas
In March of 2010, Chandler attempted to disconnect herself from the Internet.  It is commonly believed his former pastoral counselor Rochelle "Rocky" Shoemaker was behind this exile.  Although he was seemingly gone, Chandler was, in reality, still around, contacting yet another potential girlfriend (see below), posing as a troll named "JenkinsJinkies" on the CWCki , and uploading various animations for Flipnote Studio.  He was also covertly photographed at several Fridays After Five in Charlottesville, VA.  This saga ended in late August when three videos leaked of Chandler destroying his PlayStation 3. 
Jackie / Tomgirl Sagas
Jacklyn "Jackie" Romy was a troll who represented herself through a fake alias nicknamed "Jackie" accompanied by a picture of an anonymous female taken from a set of amateur adult photographs (shown below, left). Chandler first got into contact with her in April of 2010, and the two corresponded via email for several weeks over the course of the month. During this period, Jackie discovered Chandler's online presence, which culminated in a video on April 21st where Chandler describes what sexual acts she would perform on her (shown below, right).
Disgusted by his seeming unwillingness to be in a stable relationship, Jackie broke off communication with Chandler until July. She attempted to give Chandler advice on how to improve her life, which she ultimately ignored. In September 2010, she asked Chandler to draw pictures of she and her having intercourse, to which she obliged. She also made several videos targeting Jackie's ex-boyfriend, and, through October, recorded several videos of her cosplaying in order to impress her, mostly as various cartoon characters. The Jackie saga ended after Chandler stopped replying to her emails at the end of the same month, and to many, it is still unclear whether "Jackie" was an online troll pretending to be a female interested in Chandler or if she actually was real.
In late March of 2011, Chandler sent an email to Jackie about a new interest she had picked up: crossdressing.  At the end of April, Surfshack Tito leaked images of Chandler dressed in women's clothing. In May, she joined the now-defunct Tomboys and Tomgirls of Virginia forum and was soon found out in the next month.  Over the course of August, Chandler made a series of videos, named the "Calling Out" series, in an attempt to get trolls to apologize to him; only Surfshack Tito met his demands.  The Tomgirl Saga ended in September with the death of Chandler's father, Robert Chandler.
GAMe PLACe Saga
From dates as early as 2002 to 2008, one of Chandler's favorite places to hang out in Charlottesville was the local hobby and game store, the GAMe PLACe, owned by Michael Snyder. Chandler enjoyed coming to the store because they sold video games and trading cards, and held weekly tournaments of the Pokemon Trading Card Game which Chandler, at the time, had an interest in. It is also where she met Megan and became friends with her before the events of the ED saga occurred. 
However, during her time at the GAMe PLACe, Chandler would repeatedly be warned by the store's staff and Michael himself for numerous behaviors and incidents she caused, including racism, yelling at children, poor sportsmanship in card games and video games, and disrupting the shopping experience of other customers. This information was revealed by two trolls under the aliases of Mimms and Lucas, who experienced viewing the behavior first-hand when Chandler was a regular customer. 
In August 2008, Chandler was officially banned from the store by Snyder and was legally not allowed to come back, which would lead Chandler to try and convince Snyder to appeal her ban by continuously sending emails to him, trying to sneak in the store itself and making apology videos through her YouTube channel at the time, to no avail.
On October 28th, 2011, Chandler and her mother, Barbara 'Barb' Chandler, were arrested under the allegation that they had been trying to hit Michael with their car. Chandler was sentenced to community service, one year of probation and mandatory psychiatric treatment on July 10th, 2012, nine months after the initial incident occurred. 
On February 2nd, 2015, YouTuber sachumo uploaded a video titled "Chris Chan Documentary," chronicling the personal life and online history of Chandler (shown below). Within two years, the video gained over 1.08 million views and 9,000 comments.
In June 2017, Chandler launched a Patreon titled "Christine Weston Chandler is creating Sonichu and Rosechu Official Comic Books and Products." On October 9th, Chandler uploaded a video discussing the Patreon page (shown below). As of November 2017, the Patreon collects $610 per month from 27 patrons.
On November 9th, 2017, YouTuber PewDiePie uploaded a video titled "Stop Ruining Sonic," in which he discusses Chandler and Sonichu (shown below). That day, the video was submitted to the "Christian Weston Chandler" forum on Kiwi Farms.
On July 30th, 2021, audio of an alleged phone conversation between Chris-Chan and an unknown person was leaked online. The audio was uploaded to YouTube by EllDudeRocks, who claims in the description that the alleged sexual contact between Chris-Chan and Barbara, his mother, happened on June 27th, 2021, earning 12,000 views in five hours. A longer, unedited version of the audio that spans 10 minutes in length was uploaded on July 30th, 2021, by YouTuber Dr. Retard, who credits a Discord user for the video (shown below).
The initial reaction online was met with a mix of absolute disgust combined with disbelief, and the question of legality and what could possibly be done against Chris-Chan regarding this alleged matter. The Twitter account @Actually_Tina gave a nuanced take on how messy of a situation it would be to approach from a mental health standpoint (seen below).
If the Chris Chan mother stuff is real, I have no idea how the legal system would treat it.
On one hand, Barb is the mom but also has some sort of dementia. On the other Chris Chan isn't someone I'd consider sane and not delusional.
This is fucked up

On July 29th, 2022, it was confirmed that Chris-Chan would have their case go before a Grand Jury for the point of gathering together the evidence and seeing if there was enough to proceed with a trial by jury. The update to the court situation was uploaded onto YouTube by the channel RevSaysDesu where it obtained over 66,000 views in two days (shown below).
Release From Prison
On March 27th, 2023, it was confirmed through the Virginia prison system that Chris-Chan had been officially let out of prison due to a bail bond, meaning that they were free to go as long as they promised to show up for the court date. At the time it is unknown how the money was acquired to post the bail, or what Chris-Chan plans to do for housing until the trial. However, the memes that were previously used when the Hoax Escape got popular were quickly repurposed and used for the current situation (shown below).
Chandler was born on February 24th, 1982, in Charlottesville, Virginia and was raised in Ruckersville, Virginia for the majority of her life. Early in her life, she was diagnosed with autism, though it is not sure when exactly this took place. She took interest in Sonic the Hedgehog from the time the earliest games came out and later took interest in Pokémon as well. In 1994, her name was legally changed from Christopher to Christian after having it misheard by Leonard Bearstein of the Leonard Bernstein Symphony Orchestra, an animatronic musical project. In March of 2000, Chandler created the Sonichu character after she was not allowed to use copyrighted characters in a school project, instead of combining two preexisting characters to create an "original" character. After graduating from high school, Chandler enrolled at Piedmont Virginia Community College, eventually obtaining an associate's degree in Computer-Aided Drafting and Design.
