    Red face STD app 'Hula' to change name

    It took a lot of pushback, but...

    Hawaiians spur STD app’s name change
    "A sexual health information app called “Hula” will be changing its name after complaints that it is culturally insensitive to Native Hawaiians, the app’s owner said Tuesday... Bastani previously said the name would remain, even after the petition gained some attention in March, but he immediately removed any references to “getting lei’d” in marketing the app."
