BOHICA is now .... Paparazzi

Just yesterday a new band called  BOHICA  was presented to the public and less than 24hrs later the band's name has changed to "Paparazzi". I am guessing the fact that fans of Trinidad Carnival Diary on Facebook expressed  their surprise and displeasure over the acronym and what it stood for may have had something to do with this swift reversal of a name. Arguably Bend Over Here It Comes Again and what it says to potential masqueraders has to go down as the worst name for a band,ever:

" BOHICA Carnival is dedicated to all of us who at one time or another have been bent over & given a raw deal. To this we say 'BOHICA', which translated means Bend Over Here It Comes Again. "

My question is though didn't committee members and/or the band leader  research the name before going public? And if the people behind BOHICA found nothing was wrong with the name and acronym why did it take the outcry of a few facebook fans to make them change their mind on it being appropriate? The power of social media! Anyway, presenting to you, "Paparazzi" for Carnival 2013.
