No Doubt – Response to ‘Looking Hot’ Outrage…
So a statement from our Gwen led band No Doubt was just released on their site in regards to the outrage to their new music video.
The video for the song “Looking Hot” has offended quite a few people and as such the band has pulled the video off Youtube.com.
Here is the statement off their site.
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. This is of great concern to us and we are removing the video immediately. The music that inspired us when we started the band, and the community of friends, family, and fans that surrounds us was built upon respect, unity and inclusiveness. We sincerely apologize to the Native American community and anyone else offended by this video. Being hurtful to anyone is simply not who we are.

It’s good that they did what they needed too, we really liked the video because it’s really beautiful ( Especially Gwen Stefani)
Luckily, you can still watch it here!
