This soap star isn’t the first victim of the vaccine mandate

As we previously reported, Ingo Rademacher (Jasper “Jax” Jacks) was also axed from the General Hospital cast list. Like Steve Burton, Ingo Rademacher also declined to adhere to the vaccine mandate. After religious and medical exemptions were declined, he was terminated. Unfortunately, the same has now happened to Steve Burton.

  1. I stand behind Steve and Ingo. I am very proud of them . We will miss you guys. ABC is the only staton bending over for Biden . I hope they pay dearly for this.
    Way to go Steve and Ingo

  2. I’ve been watching GH for 20 years. No more. Bodily autonomy is a human right.
    ABC is going to regret this. Many of us are done with GH over Ingo and Steve’s firings. Ratings will drop.
    The only person they should let go is Nancy. With her vile posts and comments on social media, fans are disgusted.

  3. What does following the rules/policies of an employer have to do with President Biden. We all have rules to abide by, what makes them special. If anything the current President is trying to keep us safe. Not like that person who allowed thousands to die while sitting on the information.

  4. I agree 💯 %. Stupid move ABC! He’s had Covid so has natural immunity. Follow the science, not the left wing mob speared on by a dottering old fool!

  5. It’s gonna be a boring GH no real Sonny you can’t put his mind right!!! Plus no Jason. No Jax to cuss Carly out. Lol. But especially Sonny not right!!!! Getting rid of Jason the real actor who does the best acting …

    SMH 🤦🏽‍♀️

  6. GH made a terrible decision in terminating these actors for making a personal choice for their bodies. I respect Steve and Info for sticking by their beliefs. The storylines have been dark and depressing for months and now they make this stupid decision to let go of beloved actors. Hope Nancy Grahn is happy. She needs to go.

    1. Haven’t liked Nancy for a long time! She is vile and was extremely negative and too political last year. Was sick of her rants during 2020. I agree! She is the one who needs to go!

    1. GH has been going downhill for a while and now that Ingo and Steve are gone they may as well cancel the show. Been watching since the 70s but no more. Thanks Steve and Ingo for standing up for our freedoms.

  7. I will miss Steve Burton so much. I wasn’t going to watch anymore. I think I will not watch anymore. It won’t be the same without steve Burton. Not fair to us fans.

  8. It was wrong. If vaccine works, it shouldn’t matter who else has it. Agree about Nancy. She should change her name to Karen.

  9. He made his own choice. He is part of the problem why Covid is not under control yet. We vaccinated for our grandchildren. I have been watching General hospital for 35 years and I will continue to watch. Good luck in your future endeavors Steve.

  10. I’m with Steve and Ingo. Two of the best characters. Been watching since the seventies. Final straw. Bye GH.

  11. Haven’t watched since Jason’s last episode. Have watched since the sixties, tired of this kind of wrong doing. Goodbye GH
