Canadian powerlifter receives death threats for trying to protect females in the sport

Anne Andres is a transgender powerlifter hailing from Calgary, Alberta. He is a biological male competing in female powerlifting.

Andres recently stirred up a storm with a series of intense video rants on Instagram. The focal point of his tirade was April Hutchinson, a vocal advocate for female-only spaces and the safeguarding of women’s sports.


In a post that carried a mix of aggression and conviction, Andres addressed the audience with a disclaimer. He suggested that those faint of heart might want to skip the content.

Andre wrote:

“Y’all can probably skip this one. I got pretty angry but I said things that needed to be said.”

“The same f**king arguments against trans inclusion has been used historically against black inclusion. That f**king terrible human being from Ontario makes profits off of hate. The same f*cking week a HUMAN CHILD is killed for being trans, that self righteous b*tch (sorry for gendered insults I’m pretty angry right now) goes and talks about how a trans basketball player is hurting women by playing. YOU DONT GIVE A F*CK ABOUT WOMEN. You care about HATE and making a quick buck off of it.”

“You f*cking sicken me and you promote this kind of thing. There is no hell, but times like this I wish there was so you and Smith can spend eternity suffering.”

“Anyone who supports the Ontario lifter and is just as f*cked up as she is. Spend some time actually thinking about the people around you instead of just yourself.”

“May your generation die painfully and leave the youth to inherit a better world.”

The post also has eight videos featuring Andres lifting weights and yelling about April Hutchinson—whom he refers to as an anonymous lifter from Ontario. Additionally, he drew a comparison between transgenderism and the treatment of Black people in Oklahoma. He also talked about a transgender youth who was allegedly “beaten to death” in an act of transphobia

Andres alleged that Hutchinson’s stance on a trans competitors was not rooted in concern for women but rather in promoting hate for personal gain.


Andres screams into the camera and says: “There is a reason why CSIS has classified your people — and yeah, I mean your people — as t**rorists. And that’s because people like you are spreading the kind of bulls**t that is getting children killed.”

But upon closer examination, the claims made by Andres were called into question. The tragic incident involving a trans-youth allegedly “beaten to death” was contradicted by a statement from the Oklahoma police and the medical examiner.

The official report clarified that the mentioned teen did not die as a result of trauma from a school brawl, debunking Andres’ narrative.

The animosity between Andres and Hutchinson is not a recent development. The Canadian Powerlifting Union had initially suspended Hutchinson for two years after she took to social media to express dissatisfaction with Andres mocking female powerlifters.

Following an appeal, her suspension was reduced to a year.

On the other hand, Andres continues to train and compete as a woman.

Hutchinson refuses to be intimidated. She has taken legal action, filing a police report with the Calgary Police Service to document the death wishes expressed by Andres.
