Mark Hamill nominates Carrie Fisher to replace Donald Trump on Hollywood Walk of Fame: 'Good riddance'

It’s been almost one year since the West Hollywood City Council voted to approve a proposal calling for the removal of Donald Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame back in August 2018. And although it hasn’t yet happened, people on Twitter are banding together to suggest that another celebrity take the president’s place — Carrie Fisher.

The trending hashtag #AStarForCarrie was born on Wednesday morning when Fisher’s “Star Wars” co-star Mark Hamill addressed last year’s city council vote and suggested she’d be a perfect permanent addition to the famed walk.

“Good riddance!” the actor wrote. “I know just who should replace him.”

Hours later, tens of thousands of people have joined in support, noting that there’s “no one more deserving” than Fisher.

Somebody even deemed the viral discussion its own kind of “Star Wars.”

The Hollywood Walk of Fame hasn’t publicly responded to the pleas and didn’t immediately reply to Yahoo Lifestyle’s request for comment. However, it might just be time to remove the president’s star after it has been destroyed multiple times.
