Ingo Rademacher Offers Up Apology to GH Castmate and Trans Actress, Cassandra James

Photo: ABC

While it appears that Ingo Rademacher is no longer a cast member at General Hospital, (although unconfirmed by the show at this point) the actor took to his Instagram Monday morning to confront the social media firestorm at him for his reposting of podcaster’s Allie Beth Stuckley’s message on his Instagram Story.

In it, as previously reported, it included an image of trans woman, Rachel Levine, the U.S. assistant secretary for health, in which Stuckley labeled Levine a “dude”.

In his new video message, Ingo shares that he should have crossed-out the word “dude” on Stuckley’s post when referring to Levine, and that he originally posted the image it to call out the hypocrisy of the Left Wing media.

Stuckley’s post had made fun at Levine that she could be considered “an empowering woman” alongside an image of Virginia’s newly-elected Republican lieutenant governor, Winsome Sears, who is black, and could be called a “white supremacist,” since she was seen in the image holding a rifle.

Rademacher shared that his point of posting it was that he didn’t think it was okay to, “call a transgender an empowered woman because where does that leave women?”

Next, he said he wanted to apologize to GH transgender actress, Cassandra James, who fired back at Rademacher on Sunday and since that time has seen strong support on social media from her GH co-stars.

Ingo expressed: “Cassandra, I apologize to you sincerely. I think you’re an absolute talent and you’re very beautiful as well. I don’t think a transphobic man would say that. I think you’re absolutely gorgeous, I really do.”

Towards the end of his video post, Ingo said that he and his wife let their then 3-year-old son don a Disney Princess dress, “because he wanted to look pretty.” He added, ” I don’t think a transphobic dad would buy his son a Disney princess dress.”

As to his status with General Hospital, Rademacher shared that he would soon comment on that situation, but could not do it at the moment.

So, what do you think of Ingo’s apology to Cassandra? Share your thoughts, but first check out his video message, below and the original post from Allie Stuckley below it.

“Quit defending yourself?” The guy’s an ignorant ass who shared a post to denigrate, humiliate, and imply that a human being, Dr. Rachel Levine, wasn’t a woman. Dr. Levine is an American pediatrician, and a four-star admiral in the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, who has been the United States assistant secretary for health since March 26, 2021. She is a professor of pediatrics and psychiatry at the Penn State..there are more credentials but I made my point. She has contributed more to this country and has more intelligence in one finger than any right wing GOP bigot… Read more »

He owes no one an apology for that post!! The point is to call out the hypocrisy of the public. And this post perfectly illustrates that!

If Steve Burton made idiotic bigoted statements like Ingo did, he would probably be gone too. I haven’t heard anything that would indicate that’s the case.

Ingo wasn’t fired for his comments; he was let go for not getting the vaccine. GH has a mandate. Any actor not vaccinated is gone…unless GH is allowing a medical exemption. Dunno…

Nancy Lee Grahn is nothing but a hypocrite. She totally supports abortion, with its MY BODY MY CHOICE slogan. So why does MY BODY MY CHOICE not apply in her logic when people want to choose what goes into their bodies?? She can’t have it both ways!! Forcing a medical procedure …. ANY medical procedure … onto someone is assault and rape! Without medical consent, there is no freedom! The Nuremberg Trials after World War 2 have made it LAW for the ages that no forced medical procedures would ever be done to people again. Apparently Nancy disagrees with that… Read more »

Your logic is flawed. Covid is contagious, pregnancy is not. Whether you chose to get an abortion or not, my health is not affected. If you are not vaccinated, you can pass it to me. I’m vaccinated, so I won’t die if I catch it from you. My elderly mother or immune-compromised neighbor my not be so lucky. If either of them dies, their death is on your hands.

The issue is Medical Freedom of choice! Forcing medical procedures onto people against their consent is rape, assault, and illegal. What an utterly SRUPID statement … covid is contagious … pregnancy is not! Rape and Assault are not contagious either!

MY BODY MY CHOICE … you CANNOT support that for one medical procedure and deny it for another medical procedure. If you do that you are a hypocrite and your arguments and statements have no merit.

No one’s forcing anyone. The choice is simple, you can get vaccinated and remain on contract. If you choose not to vaccinate, your contract has ended. ABC/Disney has the right to determine who can appear in their productions.

JJ -please try to process this! Nancy’s MY BODY MY CHOICE does not (underlined three times) endanger the health of those people she comes into contact with. Ingo was told that getting vaccinated is a condition of his continued employment on GH. The man chose not to be vaccinated so he was fired. There is not one rule for Ingo and another rule for the other cast members. The situation surrounding Melissa Reeves and others has proven that no actor is absolutely necessary and cannot be replaced. For every actor fired from GH there will be willing actors to take… Read more »

You are not a nice person. There are lawsuits happening all over the world that you know nothing about because mainstream tv does not tell you this, and that’s where you get all your “information” from. Countless businesses and governments have been successfully sued and criminally charged for attempting to impose vaccinations on employees. It’s illegal. End of story. No ifs or ands. It’s illegal! Look it up! The Nuremberg Code makes it illegal, the Constitution makes it illegal, the Criminal Code makes it illegal. If you like to live in fantasy land where murdering children is cool, and forcing… Read more »

JJ – What is happening here has nothing, repeat nothing, to do with Nuremberg. STOP comparing COVID-19 vaccinations with the Holocaust. Trust me when I tell you, some family members of people who died in the Holocaust are both angered and insulted by this comparison. I am one of those family members.

I suggest you study California law! GH (ABC) is allowed to set the terms under which an actor can continue being employed.

First of all, stop the hideous comparisons of ANYTHING to do with Nazi Germany and the Holocaust to a contagious VIRUS and VACCINES TO SAVE PEOPLE. There is zero comparison and the idiocy of the conspiracy theorists and lunatics who keep trying to make any type of analogy to support their ignorance has got to stop. Educate yourself. The Nuremburg Trials were to bring Nazi criminals to justice for their satanic crimes. The Nuremburg code was about medical experimentation….taking Holocaust prisoners and literally lying them down, strapping them and performing all types of hideous experiments on them to support their… Read more »

Just for the record … the dude on the left is a dude on the left! Sad sad times when telling truth gets people fired! Come on Ingo! I get that the dressing your son up as a Disney princess was a last ditch attempt to not be fired, but it took away a lot of your manhood! You don’t need a job that bad where you have to grovel and pretend that your son wants to be a Disney Princess. Hopefully now that you have been fired, and it’s a done deal, you won’t ever say things like that… Read more »

It must be sad to live a sheltered life and not experience the wonderful diversity in this world.

Ingo did not get dropped from GH because of what he said, he was let go weeks before due to not following the health protocols.

The person on the left is not a dude. Who are you to judge how someone identifies themselves?

The inference that hearing a boy once dressed as a princess means he’s anymore prey to pedophiles is ridiculous.

JJ – What part of “Ingo was fired because he REFUSED to follow established Covid-19 vaccination protocol” do you NOT understand? Ingo was on his way out the door BEFORE he made the unkind and insensitive comment directed towards Dr Levine.

Every individual is ALLOWED to live his/her/their authentic life. Your permission is not required. Get this straight, when an individual comes out as transgender it is NOT all about you and what you think.

More to the point, why the H did this site feel it was necessary to repost that ignorant message from Stuckey? I really didn’t need or want to see that trash talk. I think that was in poor taste. Ingo’s defense is very thin IMO. In this day and age, anyone should know better than to post something on social media that is so indefensible. I’m from PA and very proud of Dr. Levine. She’s is a wonderful woman; a great example for all. Both Stuckey and Rademacher could have found a better way of saying what they wanted to… Read more »

Dr Levine should be admired for her dedication to the care and welfare of American children. Dr Levine is also a four star Admiral in the United States Public Health Commissioned Corps, an honor that has to be earned.

GH’s Michael E. Knight Chats On: Taking on the Role of Martin Grey, Friendship with James Patrick Stuart, and All My Children’s Tad

Last Thursday night during a livestream interview, General Hospital’s Michael E. Knight chatted with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel about returning to daytime in the role of legal eagle Martin Grey, and mixing it up with some of the most famous notables and actors that currently and historically have graced the screens on the ABC daytime drama series.

In case you missed it, the replay of the conversation with three-time Daytime Emmy winner is now available.  During the chat, Knight reveals what is has been like to play the on-screen half-brother of Genie Francis (Laura), if he enjoys the courtroom scenes in which Martin had to defend some of the most notorious in town including Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier), and more.

Fans of GH are also enjoying the romantic pairing of Lucy Coe and Martin, pairing Knight with another soap vet, Lynn Herring.  Michael shares that it’s nice to see, and appreciates, the writers creating a fun relationship for a couple that is middle-aged instead of always seeing the younger sets escapades all of the time on daytime TV.

All My Children fans, of course, recall Michael’s memorable performances through the years as Tad Martin, where he became synonymous with Pine Valley.  After AMC came to its conclusion in 2011 on ABC and 2013 with Prospect Park, Knight finally returned to soaps in 2015 in the recurring role of Dr. Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless before joining the cast of GH in 2019.

During the interview, Michael shares behind the scenes stories of working with his on-screen parents, Mary Fickett (Ruth) and Ray MacDonnell (Joe), his enduring on-screen love story with Dixie (Cady McClain), and the heyday of AMC in story, with his on-screen sister, Jenny played by Kim Delaney. When Michael came to GH, viewers recall he actually got to share an inside moment with Kim and the fans, when Martin met Jackie Templeton, then played by Delaney.

During the livestream, Michael recalled several of Tad’s wives, and when one fan asked if Cady McClain might come to GH as Dixie, and that maybe she could be a woman from Martin’s past, Knight shared that it could be interesting.

In a surprise appearance later in the livestream, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin, GH), who has an enduring friendship with Michael, and happened to be at Knight’s house, shared some memories of his time as Will Cortlandt on All My Children. Now decades later, things have come full-circle for the good friends as they share screen-time on General Hospital as Valentin and Martin.

Stuart is a Daytime Emmy nominee this year for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category at the upcoming 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, and we took a moment to congratulate him on being acknowledged by his peers for the second year in a row.  Currently, James is pulling double duty shooting his Disney+ show, Villains of Valley View, while also taping GH.

Then let us know, are you enjoying Martin and Lucy together? What do you think of the idea of Cady McClain coming to GH? Do you want to see more Valentin and Martin scenes? And, what are your favorite memories of Michael’s time as Tad on All My Children? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
