The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the West Hollywood City Council had just unanimously voted to take out Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, “due to his disturbing treatment of women and other actions that do not meet the shared values of the City of West Hollywood, the region, state, and country.”
It’s now revealed that Star Wars actor Mark Hamill feels the vacant space would be better suited for someone very special. In a tweet currently pinned to his Twitter profile, Hamill suggests Donald Trump’s star be replaced with one for late actress Carrie Fisher.

As wonderfully worded by the site Epicstream.com, not only was the actress a Star Wars icon, she was a writer and a strong advocate for mental health. Fisher was very outspoken when it came to the importance of mental health, she herself being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and suffering from addiction for a majority of her life. Not only was Fisher a beacon for the women and men that loved her Star Wars character, Leia Organa, she was also a symbol of hope for those suffering from mental illnesses like she was. If anyone were to get a star to replace Trump, Fisher would be the perfect fit.
Do you agree that Carrie Fisher should get Trump’s old star? Or is anyone a better fit for the spot? Share your thoughts with Nerdbot in the comments!
