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.

Bryan Craig Teases His Role in Upcoming ‘Joker’ Sequel

Former General Hospital star and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) has been quite busy these days with his continuing role on Freeform’s Good Trouble and now the biggest tease of all!

Craig took to his Instagram account and posted an intriguing pic, which from all indications mean he has landed a part in the upcoming motion picture Joker sequel Folie à Deux! (“Madness for Two”).

Because details on the upcoming film have been top secret, Craig erased his character’s name on his cast parking sign when he posted the image.

What we do know is that the upcoming Joker sequel will see the return of Joaquin Phoenix in his Oscar-winning role as Arthur Fleck. The cast includes Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn, plus Brendan Gleeson, Zazie Beets, and Catherine Keener.

The film is due out in 2024.

Looking forward to seeing Bryan in Folie à Deux? Comment below.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Photo: ABC

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
