Mark Hamill isn’t afraid to be outspoken against President Donald Trump and he isn’t afraid to put his money where his mouth is.

The “Star Wars” actor tweeted Sunday that he donated to a crowd-funded campaign to become a majority shareholder in Twitter in order to remove Trump’s account.
The Gofundme campaign, started by Valerie Wilson on behalf of Global Zero, a nonprofit that works to eliminate nuclear weapons, hopes to raise $1 billion to buy enough shares in Twitter to remove the President’s account.

“Time and again his use of this huge global platform has major consequences in the real world,” Wilson writes, adding that Twitter hasn’t been doing enough to “enforce their own community standards.” “With a single tweet, he can damage international relationships and alliances, spread fake news like a virus, embolden white supremacists to march in the streets, or send stock markets crashing or soaring.”
