General Hospital': Ingo Rademacher Out at ABC Soap โ€“ The Hollywood Reporter

Long-standing soap star, Ingo Rademacher, is done with โ€œGeneral Hospitalโ€ following his refusal to get the COVID vaccine. His exit was followed up with a controversial transphobic tweet that he has since apologized for.

The news of his exit comes after colleagues called him out for posting an anti-transgender meme on social media. It was confirmed that his final episode on the show, where heโ€™s been a regular for 25 seasons, is slated for November 22.

In a flashback, Rademacher posted an image of Dr. Rachel Levine, the first transgender person to earn four-star rank in the U.S. uniformed services. Alongside that picture, he also posted the photo of the newly elected Virginia Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears, who was the first woman of color to hold the post.

The caption underneath the collage photo read, โ€œHello, and welcome to ClownTown, where the dude on the left is an empowering woman, and the woman on the right is a white supremacist.โ€

Keep reading to see how his co-stars called him out and how it led to his eventual dismissal from โ€œGeneral Hospital.โ€

Reactions
This roused a lot of reactions and criticisms from fans and even co-stars.

A fellow โ€œGeneral Hospitalโ€ star replied to what Rademacher put up, saying, โ€œI am aware of a transphobic post shared by a fellow General Hospital actor. Shame on you,โ€ Cassandra James wrote on Twitter.

โ€œYou have some serious unlearning and education to do. I feel deeply disappointed that such a public display of ignorance could come from our GH family.โ€

Misgendering trans folks is violence, and if you come for one of us, you come for all of us,โ€ James added.

โ€œThe cis world doesnโ€™t get to decide which of us is valuable. I am so proud of the fans for always holding us to a high standard, for calling out transphobia and violence.โ€

Nancy Lee Grahn, another co-star, replied to Jamesโ€™ tweet. She expressed gratitude that Rademacher was not a part of the โ€œGHโ€ cast any longer. โ€œTransphobia & misgendering are disgusting & should be unacceptable in any industry, including soaps/acting. I stand with my co-star [James] & the trans community,โ€ she concluded.

Bungled Apology
In an Instagram post on Monday, Rademacher doubled down on sharing the meme. He also asserted that while he thinks itโ€™s โ€œnot OKโ€ to call a woman of color a white supremacist, โ€œI donโ€™t think either itโ€™s OK to call a transgender an empowered woman, because where does that leave women?โ€

โ€œI do apologize for not crossing out โ€˜dudeโ€™ and putting in transgender,โ€ he continued in the video. โ€œMe personally, I wouldnโ€™t have written it that way.โ€ He added that he shared the post because he wanted to call out โ€œthe hypocrisy of the left-wing media.โ€

In the same video, Rademacher also apologized to James. โ€œI think youโ€™re an absolute talent and youโ€™re very beautiful as well; I donโ€™t think a transphobic man would say thatโ€ He then shared an anecdote about his son wanting to wear a Disney princess dress when he was still a baby. โ€œI donโ€™t think a transphobic dad would buy his son a Disney princess dress,โ€ he concluded.

He also noted that he would address his status at โ€œGeneral Hospitalโ€ at another time.

Anti-Vax Remarks
This wasnโ€™t the first time Rademacher was being slammed publicly, as he was previously attacked for not following the productionโ€™s COVID vaccine mandate and for being an anti-vaxxer.

This occurred when fellow โ€˜GHโ€™ star Steve Burton tested positive for the virus and disclosed he caught the virus on the location set.

Although Rademacher hasnโ€™t been vocal about his anti-vaccination stance for a long time now, his Instagram feed was agog with think pieces and opinions on vaccination on Sunday.

โ€œI will stand with you to fight for medical freedom. If we donโ€™t send a strong message to the Biden Administration to reverse course immediately where do you think this ends guys? With Booster No. 25? Nope. Vaccine passports and more segregation is on its way right now. Wakey Wakey,โ€ he concluded.
