General Hospital News: Steve Burton Opens Up About His Exit – ‘Several Doors Of Opportunity’ Open
As many fans know by now, Steve was forced to walk away from the hit ABC soap after he refused to comply with the network’s vaccine mandate. He decided to address his departure from the show in a video that he posted on social media shortly after the announcement was made.
According to the latest edition of Soap Opera Digest, Steve began his video by saying that there were a lot of rumors swirling around about his status from the show and wanted to address them personally. He said, “Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions and both of those were denied, which, you know, hurts. But this is about personal freedom to me.”
However, Steve went on to say that it’s not all gloom and doom as there’s a possibility that fans might see him on the canvas sooner rather than later. Steve said that while he will always be grateful for his time at General Hospital, he knows that new beginnings are ahead for him.
