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?” 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 »

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.

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

So what storyline do you think Felicia will get thrown into? Will she return to Port Charles to help Maxie (Kirsten Storms)?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
