Nobody said the Hollywood Walk of Fame was for nice people, but Edison was a grade-A asshole. He was notorious for stealing ideas (including the light bulb) and ruthlessly undermining competition. Once Edison staged an elaborate public execution for Topsy the elephant just to slander alternating current and promote his "safer" direct current method (it's not). He killed an elephant, guys!
The quintessential Scrooge selfishly hoarded most of the patents related to motion-picture technology under the Edison Trust monopoly, forcing many filmmakers and producers to set up shop in this little place called Hollywood. While Kim Kardashian has her own fair share of haters, at least she's made a name for herself without ripping off others...or killing innocent animals. Her only casuality has been Kris Humphries, but considering he had the gall to call her fat, we don't have much sympathy.
