The founder of "Hula," an app that provides information about sexually transmitted diseases, will change the app's name after Hawaiians objected.

Native Hawaiians told Ramin Bastani that the name is culturally insensitive.

An online petition asking him to change the name argues that the name exploits a sacred cultural art form. Bastani previously resisted changing the name even after the petition gained attention in March.

A new name hasn't been picked yet.
