UPDATE: TVLine confirmed that Ingo Rademacher is out as Jax on General Hospital. His final air date is November 22.

After weeks of speculation and rumors swirling, it looks like Ingo Rademacher’s time at General Hospital is over.

The network and the show have not officially confirmed his status, but fellow castmate, Nancy Lee Grahn, revealed he was no longer a part of the cast.

Ingo Rademacher has been a staunch advocate for not getting vaccinated against COVID-19, believing it should be a personal choice and not mandated.

General Hospital makes COVID-19 vaccine a requirement

As the country moves toward herd immunity, many businesses are mandating that their employees are vaccinated against COVID-19. There were some exceptions for children who are under five and people with medical exemptions.

General Hospital actors, set crew, and other staff were given a date where they had to show proof of vaccination. There were no exceptions, and when the date approached, the non-compliant parties were reportedly let go.

Nancy Lee Grahn, who plays Alexis Davis on General Hospital, confirmed that Ingo Rademacher was let go but it looks like there is more to it than just his vaccine stance.

She tweeted, “The fellow actor, #IngoRademacher, is mercifully no longer a part of the #gh cast. Transphobia & misgendering are disgusting & should be unacceptable in any industry, including soaps/acting. I stand with my costar, @cassandrajames_, & the trans community.”

General Hospital and the actors have prided themselves in being inclusive of all things, and his post was over the top. Nancy stepped in to support her costar, which isn’t surprising to those who know and follow her.

On Instagram, he issued an apology.. He apologized specifically to Cassandra James and called her beautiful, saying that he wouldn’t have said that if he were transphobic. He also promised to comment on his General Hospital status later, which alluded that he may have been let go.

Things have been chaotic where Ingo Rademacher is concerned for months. He was caught being nasty about working with Nancy in a scene while with Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos), which caused the latter to issue an apology.

At one point, #FireIngo was trending on Twitter. His outspoken nature and the comments he makes do not sit well with some of the viewers. They came for him, and it didn’t stop.

As news of his being let go from General Hospital started to make rounds, he shared a post on Instagram about supporting medical freedom.

Ingo Rademacher is planning to talk about his General Hospital status, but for now, it looks like all signs point to him being let go from the ABC soap.

  1. Anyone, vaccinated or not, can contract C19, and infect others. How can the most successful, beloved soap be so blind and unreasonable to this fact?

    Also, GH has allowed over the top virtue signaling coworkers to stir up trouble where there is none. What a shame to lose Rademacher over defensiveness and a wildly unfair mandate.

    Very disappointed in GH—you just took a nose dive from the pedestal you worked so hard for over the years.

  5. So sorry to hear Ingo might be leaving GH. Love him. He has a right to his opinion, which I happen to agree with. What is this country coming to! What happened to “Free Speech”?

  6. This longtime fan of GH is sad to say that they have lost their professional standards of production, and have given in to the militant, arrogant left. You do not have a right to mandate another person’s healthcare choices. And above all what is it about— anyone vaccinated or not can indeed contract Covid, and transmit Covid? GH, you are not thinking clearly. And you are causing infighting thru your tolerance for people who are aggressive in bringing their agenda to work. Mr Rademacher has been unjustly attacked, and from what I see, he has had to work with angry, self righteous people, and has been unlawfully dismissed. Like I said your thinking has been muddied by the leftist militants, who make trouble where there is none! You are letting go of the wrong people. Take stock, stop being bullied by unhappy people, and get back to business.

  7. i would bet that Nancy Lee Grahn is all in on ‘my body my choice’ when it comes to killing babies in the womb.
    Tired of the virtue signalling from GH, taking back that hour a day that I used to watch.
