Former 'General Hospital' star Ingo Rademacher sues ABC over vaccine mandate

Former “General Hospital” star Ingo Rademacher filed a lawsuit Monday against ABC over the company’s vaccine mandate that he argues is unconstitutional, a report said.

Rademacher, who played Jasper “Jax” Jacks, was canned from the long-running soap opera last month after refusing to get the jab.

He argues in the suit that ABC religiously discriminated against him by denying him a religious exemption for the vaccine, Variety reported.

Before he was fired, Rademacher pleaded his case to the company’s human resource department, but to no avail.

“I am entitled to a religious exemption against mandatory vaccination for COVID-19 on the basis of my deeply and sincerely held moral belief that my body is endowed by my creator with natural processes to protect me,” Rademacher wrote in an Oct. 11 email to Disney’s HR department, according to the report.

Rademacher was fired from 'General Hospital' after he refused to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Rademacher added in the HR email that his body’s “natural integrity cannot ethically be violated by the administration of artificially created copies of genetic material, foreign to nature and experimental.”

Another “General Hospital” star, Steve Burton, was also fired last after he refused to comply with the show’s vaccine mandate.
