Veteran General Hospital Actor Fired Over Anti-Vaxx and Transphobic Statements

Australian actor Ingo Rademacher who has portrayed the character of Jasper Jax on “GH” for over 25 years has been fired over his numerous anti-vaxx and anti-trans comments.

Rademacher who has been an out-spoken anti-vaccine nutjob on Instagram is not vaccinated, and doesn’t believe in it, . even after co-star Steve Burton (Jason) disclosed that he had tested positive for COVID and claimed to have been exposed to the virus at work. (GH has since become the only soap opera with a vaccine mandate.)

Rademacher posted a video to Instagram in which he called his fans “Bigots” and “morons” for criticizing him.

In November, Rademacher shared to his Instagram a hateful anti-trans meme; it did not go unnoticed. “I am aware of a transphobic post shared by a fellow General Hospital actor,” tweeted Cassandra James, the transgender actress who plays Terry. “Shame on you. You have some serious unlearning and education to do. I feel deeply disappointed that such a public display of ignorance could come from our General Hospital family.

Rademacher has not directly commented on his firing but has doubled down posting an Instagram message yesterday stating, “I will stand with you to fight for medical freedom.”

Well he’ll have a lot of free time to do that now. Won’t he.
