Ingo Rademacher Fired For Refusing Vaccine

On the ABC soap program General Hospital, Ingo Rademacher, who plays Jasper "Jax" Jacks, has been sacked for refusing vaccine and received massive backlash after a series of contentious social media statements.

The long-running series’ producers recently let go of actor Ingo Rademacher and according to a source acquired by US Magazine, “his separation from General Hospital was prior to today and was because he declined to comply with the production’s vaccine mandate.”

The entertainer already has expressed his aversion to vaccination requirements. He posted an Instagram photo of himself on Sunday, November 7, with the statement, “I will stand with you to fight for medical freedom,” adding the hashtag “#nomandates.”

He also made news after sharing a transphobic remark on Instagram which includes Dr. Rachel Levine, the first transgender person to reach a four-star rank in the US military forces, and freshly elected Virginia Lieutenant Governor Winsome Sears in the meme.

“Hello, and welcome to ClownTown,” the description on the tweet said. “Where the dude on the left is an empowering woman, and the woman on the right is a white supremacist.”

Rademacher’s co-stars on General Hospital were quick to condemn him for the role. Cassandra James, who is transgender, tweeted on Sunday, “I am aware of a transphobic post shared by a fellow General Hospital actor.”

“Shame on you. You have some serious unlearning and education to do. I feel deeply disappointed that such a public display of ignorance could come from our GH family,” she added.

As per TVLine, his final episode of General Hospital will broadcast on ABC on Monday, November 22.

I’m HAPPY #IngoRademacher is no longer on #GH, no matter the reason (transphobia comment/anti vaccine)

@RandomGHFan

Any actor that speaks vile words against another human should not be employed anywhere in the acting community. #IngoRademacher is a has been attention seeking loud mouth, sexist, racist,transphobic, bigot. And any company especially Disney need to shout how wrong his words are

@Konfident_Pearl

Ingo Rademacher has completely lost ALL respect I have ever had for him. I am glad this show is rid of him and #IStandwithCassandra always. #GH

@emiecraigo6

Our LGBTQ community is stronger than the hateful ignorance exhibited by people like Ingo Rademacher. His trafficking in racism, sexism, and now transphobia speaks directly to his character. I don’t care how nice he’s been *to you*, his behavior is abhorrent. Shame on him. #GH

@SourceRyan

Thank God #IngoRademacher is finally fucking gone. His blatant racism and Covid19 misinformation didn't do it... but his transphobia finally took his punk ass down. #GH...y'all could have done this months ago...

@Ladyhawke80

GH should have fired Ingo Rademacher a long time ago. But they let him spew his hate and ignored it. His character is not valuable to the show. Never has been. And if he were to leave today, not a single storyline would be affected. Not a one.
