Mark Hamill thinks Carrie Fisher should replace Trump's Hollywood star

A small district of Los Angeles has asked that Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame be removed, in part because of the way he treats women.

The vote to remove the star was unanimous as per Mayor John Duran's tweet on Monday. The Chamber of Commerce claims that half the cost goes into building the star, while the other half is used for upkeep.

Mark Hamill has suggested Hollywood replace Donald Trump's star on the Walk of Fame with one for the late Carrie Fisher.

His Star Wars castmate never received a star on the Walk of Fame, and now she's dead the rules dictate she can't be honoured until at least 2021 - five years after her passing. In response to the vote, Hollywood Chamber of Commerce president Leron Gubler said the matter would be referred to his organisation's executive board, adding there are now "no plans" to act on the request.

Leron Gubler, president of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which has jurisdiction over the Walk of Fame, issued a statement saying that while there is no plan to remove Trump's star, the request from the council will be referred to the chamber's executive committee for consideration.
