General Hospital News: Ingo Rademacher Now Says That He Got Fired Because Of His Right Wing Beliefs

Yes, this is still going on. General Hospital alum Ingo Rademacher (ex-Jasper Jacks) now says that he was fired from the hit ABC soap not because of his religious beliefs, but because of his political beliefs instead. As many fans can recall, the actor was let go in late 2021 after he refused to comply with the network’s vaccination mandate at the time. Here’s what you need to know.

General Hospital News: Ingo Rademacher Now Says That He Got Fired Because Of His Right Wing Beliefs

Ingo has slapped a lawsuit on the Walt Disney Corporation and ABC and well, let’s just say that Mickey Mouse has put his white gloves on and has slapped back. According to the latest reports, Ingo’s attorneys have filed new paperwork to oppose the network’s motion to have the lawsuit tossed. He claims that he was fired because of his political beliefs. As many of his fans know, Ingo is a proud and very outspoken right-wing Republican.

Ingo’s attorneys claim that, “ABC had a duty to accommodate Ingo. Instead, it put him through a sham process that was designed to fail, and which was meant to cover up the real reason for Ingo’s termination: his political views.”

The filing also added that, “the show’s producers and writers did not like his comments about Donald Trump and restrictive Covid policies, so they wrote him off the show and decided to “recast” the role. That meant hiring somebody else to play Ingo’s character. There was a problem, though: Ingo was one of the most popular actors on General Hospital. He was under contract until June 2022 and the producers had previously discussed extending his deal. Criticism of Ingo’s political commentary also led to the creation of the #FireIngo, which was trending around the time ABC decided to axe him. So, instead of being honest with Ingo, ABC used the Covid vaccine policy as an excuse to get rid of him.”

So far Ingo himself has not made any comments about the matter but at the same time, he also hasn’t found any work in the entertainment industry ever since he was let go from General Hospital.
