Despite efforts from her former co-star Mark Hamill, the late Carrie Fisher will not replace Donald Trump with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Responding to a story about Trump's star, the actor tweeted: "Good riddance!"

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.

Hamill tweeted the idea on Wednesday morning, after sharing an article from 2018 about the West Hollywood City Council voting to ask the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove Trump's star, which he received for his work producing beauty pageants.

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

"Having a 'star" on the Walk of Fame is a privilege that is highly sought after by those in the entertainment industry, allowing Mr. Trump to continue to have a star in light of his behavior toward women, particularly in the #timesup and #metoo movements, should not be acceptable in the Hollywood and entertainment industry communities, ' read the council's resolution. According to the Walk of Fame website, the stars cost $50,000 for promotion and upkeep, typically sponsored by the celebrity's nominator like a studio or recording company.

Some people may be giving Facebook, which this year suffered a corporation-wide 14-hour outage , too much credit. WhatsApp has over 400 million users in India , while Facebook has over 300 million users, according to Statista.

But Fisher is now ineligible to receive her own star.

"We don't remove stars", chamber spokeswoman Ana Martinez told the Los Angeles Times.

Fans were rather surprised, some realising for the first time that Carrie does not have a star on the Walk of Fame.

Martinez also addressed the possibility of Fisher getting her own star and how long it will take before the late actress is eligible. Which means, Hamill and her fans would have to wait for another two years or so to get the process started.

There is little doubt that people are still mourning the unexpected death of Carrie Fisher back in 2016 and some are hoping that the Star Wars: The Last Jedi actress will be honored for her lasting contribution to cinematic history. And her on-screen brother Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill has been campaigning for it since a while now.
