Mark Hamill wants Carrie Fisher to take spot of Trump’s Hollywood star

‘Good Riddance!’: Mark Hamill Campaigns for Carrie Fisher to Replace Trump’s Hollywood Star

Mark Hamill has sparked a campaign to replace Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with an honour to his late Star Wars sister Carrie Fisher.

"Good riddance! (and I know just who should replace him....) #AStarForCarrie ⭐️" Hamill wrote on Twitter.

Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been defaced with swastikas and profanity, pulverized by a pickaxe and has also served as the site of multiple brawls and demonstrations.

Though Fisher's co-star Mark Hamill tweeted out a story from The Hill about the West Hollywood City Council's decision, adding, 'and I know just who should replace him.

Some fans are already planning to start a fundraiser to buy a star on the Walk of Fame for Fisher.

Trump's star has been repeatedly vandalized since his entry into national politics.

While Trump's star is still intact, Twitter banded together on Wednesday, using Hamill's #AStarForCarrie to plead the case that Fisher deserves a star.

If you're a Star Wars fan, it must be hard for you to make peace with the fact that our beloved Princess and General, Leia Organa, the late Carrie Fisher, still does not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Speaking with The Los Angeles Times, a spokeswoman for the organization, Ana Martinez, explained that they view the stars as part of the historical fabric of the Walk of Fame and that stars are never removed.

The celebrity's family must approve of the star, but only one deceased celeb's star is approved each year. Because the LA Times reports that as per the rules of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the application for Carrie Fisher's star would have to be submitted by her estate on her fifth death anniversary.

Fisher passed away December 27, 2016, so she will be eligible for a star on December 27, 2021.

As for Fisher getting a star of her own, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has made it clear that they'd happily accept her submission, but it's a more complicated process than simple public demand.

Though it's unlikely the Chamber of Commerce and Garcetti will budge on the issue, that does not mean Fisher can not receive her own posthumous star in a different spot on the famed sidewalk.
