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

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! Call it like itvis and stand strong !

“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 which includes Ingo. And the IRONY is that he called GH viewers “bigots” for being against his anti-vax position. The man needs a dictionary; a bigot is someone who exhibits the behavior and opinion he displayed in that transphobic post, not someone who criticize others for their stand on vaccines.

You nailed it, Rebecca! Thank you for your post.

I’m all over it, Jamesj. I have zero tolerance for ignorance.

I think Ingo is going to get pretty darn tired from all the back peddling. Too little too late.

When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.

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!

How does this make it any better?

STEVE BURTON’ – MUST be Fired – you can’t have one without the other – PERIOD

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 decision!!

I hope Ingo and Steve and others DO leave and stick to their beliefs in medical choice and freedom! Nancy needs to go! Her beliefs in forcing medical procedures onto unwilling people are disgusting, sickening, and wrong! I hope the GH cast is completely gutted and decimated by actors leaving in protest!

Every few years her controversial rantings on social media stir up unnecessary trouble for people, and she never faces any consequences! I have LOVED her acting since Santa Barbara, and she should stick to acting instead of her dime store political views.

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.

I completely agree, Steve!

So … forcing.

Lmfao! The way you people can rationalize and twist things to suit what you need them to be is astonishing!!

You all should be gymnasts and contortionists!!

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 over the role/roles. As for the rest of your post- idiotic nonsense!

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 mystery poison jabs into people is swell, go ahead! Morality and the law do not back you up!

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 ideological view of racial superiority.

As for the apology, as Johnny Mathis & Denise Williams sang “Too Much, Too Little, Too Late.”

Another example of people spending too much time on social media. Read a book; it’s a lot safer and it’s better for you.

Right? Lol. Good post!!

JJ-get the message? In your case STOP paying attention to idiotic conspiracy theories surrounding COVID-19 and listen to the real life medical experts who actually graduated from reputable medical schools.

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 about your son! Saying things like that with a child in the public eye is a pedophile’s dream!! Don’t make your child a target!!

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 without slamming someone personally.

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Tracy Learns Gregory Died from Cody; Finn and Chase Share Their Grief

Friday’s May 24th episode of General Hospital featured some very touching scenes.

First, when Tracy (Jane Elliot) returned to the stables for a ride, she is met by Cody (Josh Kelly). He tells her she is needed in the house. Tracy doesn’t think anyone needs her there.

Tracy relates how Chase (Josh Swickard) and Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) are on a plane to Florence. Cody tells her that they couldn’t get on that plane. Cody can only say, “He’s sorry.” It’s at that moment Tracy is hit with the realization that Gregory passed away.

Cody tells her what he knows of Gregory’s passing, but Tracy says that she knew this was eventually going to happen, but this feels so sudden. Cody is sorry she had to hear the news from him.  Tracy says, she’s not. She poignantly thinks Gregory must have been a lot like Cody when he was younger. Tracy goes on to say they both have an open way about them as he doesn’t miss a thing, doesn’t talk much, doesn’t push people around, and that he gives people a lot of grace. Cody is moved. Tracy decides she needs to head out.

Next, Tracy comes to the hospital and meets with Stella. Knowing Stella (Vernee Watson) is a patient advocate, Tracy tells her if anything comes up for Gregory’s death regarding bills or anything she can handle with her hands or her checkbook, to let her know. Tracy reveals that she doesn’t want Gregory’s family to worry about anything right now. She goes on to say to keep her name out of it.

Stella tells Tracy this is her loss to and its OK for her to grieve. Tracy shared that Gregory changed her, and she doesn’t want to let him down, at least not so soon.

At Finn’s, Chase tries to console his brother. Finn tells Chase he also lost his dad, but Chase can see how hard finding Gregory dead has hit Finn; given he has been drinking. Finn tells Chase that the person he found in that bed didn’t look their dad.  He cries that he didn’t want this to happen and Chase hugs his brother tight and says neither did he.

Sitting down together, the two brothers have a heart-to-heart. Finn realizes he handled the entire situation the wrong way and even pushed Elizabeth away.  Chase says there is no correct way to grieve. Finn feels such guilt over how many times in their lives he hurt their father, and now he threw his sobriety away, which Gregory was proud of him for.

Chase says he rebuilt his relationship with their dad, and he can do the same now with his sobriety. Finn asks Chase to get rid of the liquor bottle and so Chase takes care of it.  When Violet (Jophielle Love) and Brook Lynn return, Finn tells Brook Lynn he is so sorry that she and Chase had to miss their honeymoon. Brook Lynn assures him she is here for him for whatever he needs. Next, Finn says he needs a meeting and Chase says he thinks that is a good idea.

Meanwhile, in Albany, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is having all sorts of trouble in her attempt to get her law license reinstated during her her hearing vs. Fergus Byrne (Lane Davies). The judges will render their decision within 30 days and notify the parties. Will she head back to Port Charles, find out about Gregory, and wind up at an AA meeting with Finn?

In this episode, the always fabulous Jane Elliot touched out hearts in her scenes as well as Josh Kelly, Michael Easton and Josh Swickard.

So, what did you think about Tracy’s reaction to Gregory’s death? The scenes between Finn and Chase and what will happen to Alexis next? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
