No Doubt released the music video for their new single “Looking Hot,” but have since taken it down!
The band pulled the video after receiving negative feedback from the Native American community for their use of stereotypical images.
In the “cowboys and Indians” themed video we see the use of headdresses, tepees and smoke signals which apparently have offended individuals in the Native American community.
Perhaps I am uninformed, but weren’t all of those things actually used by some Native American tribes at some point in time? Just saying.
Anyways, the clip was taken down from Youtube and the band released a statement saying:
“As a multi-racial band our foundation is built upon both diversity and consideration for other cultures. Our intention with our new video was never to offend, hurt or trivialize Native American people, their culture or their history. Although we consulted with Native American friends and Native American studies experts at the University of California, we realize now that we have offended people.”
Also Gwen Stefani is looking really good in this video. Just thought I’d add that.
Check out the video below…
Well offensive or not, I really liked the video. I wonder if the band will make a new music video for the song.
“Looking Hot” is the second single off the band’s new album, “Push and Shove.”
