Stephen Colbert has provided some medical advice for General Hospital star Ingo Rademacher after the star was fired by ABC for failure to comply with the COVID vaccine mandate.

Rademacher has since sued ABC for his firing, which – in addition to his appearance on Tucker Carlson Today – received a response from The Late Show host.

“Sorry buddy but you have to follow the medical advice, you’re on General Hospital, not ‘General Stuff I Read On Facebook’.”

Colbert went on to read out Rademacher’s explanaion for the lawsuit.

“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,” Ingo Rademacher explained.

“Now, a lot of people say that Ingo Rademacher is being ridiculous … Unless, that’s not Ingo Rademacher! It’s Ingo Rademacher’s twin brother Vigo Rademacher who just woke up from a coma.

“After being pushed down a flight of stairs by the wealthy heiress Lady Zanzibar who is secretly his long lost sister Sandra “Gilbertson” Gilbertson who was also his lover, which he doesn’t remember because he has amnesia.”

Colbert then pulls out the final plot twist in his story, complete with dramatic beats and zooms: “Or maybe, in just one final twist, none of that is true and Ingo Rademacher is just a stupid dingus. That makes more sense. That’s the one.”

Rademacher played Jasper “Jax” Jacks on General Hospital before he left the show.

Before he landed his first acting role on Aussie series Paradise Beach as Sean Hayden, Ingo Rademacher was a model in Brisbane and Sydney.
