Mark Hamill is typically a gentle being when it comes to his legions of fans. In fact, he's considered a true darling around his supporters, may it be during conventions or on social media. However, following an incident that took place right after Carrie Fisher's Walk of Fame ceremony, the Star Wars icon is airing his grievances online.

A video taken on May the Fourth, the same day Fisher finally got her star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame, sees the Luke Skywalker actor getting harassed by fans and autograph seekers who swarmed the SUV he was in as he was leaving Los Angeles.

The actor attempted to flee the scene but things would get ugly in a hurry and as seen in the now-viral clip, folks were shoving their memorabilia at the 71-year-old actor through the open window of the vehicle.

At one point during the video, you can even see that the actor was hurt after getting mobbed by disrespectful autograph seekers. Now, days following the horrific occurrence, Hamill is taking to social media to address the matter.

Admirably, Hamill still kept his cool and didn't fly into a rage despite what happened. He did express his disappointment and said what he experienced is the downside of being a celebrity.

Resharing the clip, Hamill simply captioned the post with the hashtag #TheDownsideOfCelebrity. Check out his tweet here:

It's absolutely infuriating how some fans can't seem to grasp the concept of celebrities having their own private spaces. Hopefully, this doesn't happen again in the future. A little respect would certainly go a long way.
