INGO Rademacher is best known for the role of Jasper "Jax" Jacks on General Hospital.
The soap opera star has been starring in the series since 1996.
Who is General Hospital star Ingo Rademacher?
Ingo Rademacher, 50, is a German-Australian actor.
He has starred in various productions aside from being on General Hospital, such as Titans, Hawaii Five-0, and The Bold and the Beautiful.
Rademacher was also a contestant on season 16 of Dancing with the Stars, partnering with two-time champion Kym Johnson.
Aside from his acting career, he is an entrepreneur and the owner of an activewear store in Hawaii.
Rademacher was in hot water with social media users after he allegedly promoted an anti-vaccination passport rally online and criticized the coronavirus vaccines.
After his remarks, the hashtag #FireIngo began trending all over Twitter and Facebook.
In a video shared on social media on Wednesday, August 25, 2021, the actor said that he wanted to "address all of the morons" behind the hashtag, telling them, "I dislike you… I think you're bigots and I think you know it.
“To do something like that to another person just shows the kind of character you have… You're a horrible, horrible person."
He shared a video on Instagram, captioning the post: "Mandating any vaccine is wrong but especially one that doesn’t help stop the spread, that’s nothing short of crazy talk.
“If you want to take the vaccine, take it. Just know you’re doing it for yourself, not to save anyone else. You’re not a hero."
He also suggested his fans start a new hashtag: #ApologizetoIngo and ended the clip by telling those who called for his firing that they are "dragging down the human race" and should "take a long hard look at [yourselves]."
In November 2021, Ingo incited further backlash after he took to Instagram to repost a tweet calling Rachel Levine, the US assistant secretary for health, a “dude.”
The assistant secretary for health was sworn in as the first transgender four-star officer.
Ingo's General Hospital castmates Cassandra James, who is trans, and Nancy Lee Grahn, blasted him for his comments.
“I am aware of a transphobic post shared by a fellow General Hospital actor,” tweeted James, who plays Dr. Terry Randolph on the soap. “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 GH family.“
“Misgendering trans folks is violence and if you come for one of us, you come for all of us,” James continued. “The cis world doesn’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.”
Is Ingo still on General Hospital?
Ingo is currently playing Jasper "Jax" Jacks on the show.
He has starred continuously on the show for 25 years.
In November 2021, one of Ingo's castmates allegedly claimed that the actor was no longer on the show, but that has not been confirmed.
“The fellow actor, #IngoRademacher, is mercifully no longer a part of the #gh cast," posted Nancy Lee Grahn who plays Alexis Davis on the show.

Ehiku and Rademacher then welcomed their second son, Pohaku Zen at their home in Hawaii in 2012.
On June 5, 2021, they welcomed their third child, a daughter named Iwa Lehua Rademacher.
