An activist from Zimbabwe is calling on Disney to relinquish its trademark on "Hakuna Matata"

 Not the song, but the PHRASE.

 It's Swahili, and it means "no worries," just like they say in the song from "The Lion King".  Disney trademarked the phrase in 1994, the year the movie came out, and it's getting attention now because of next summer's live action version of the movie.

 Shelton Mpala says he started the petition to, quote, "draw attention to the appropriation of African culture and the importance of protecting our heritage, identity and culture from being exploited for financial gain by third parties."

 As of last night, the petition had more than 70,000 signatures
