[UPDATE] Gwen Stefani + No Doubt Pull ‘Looking Hot’ Video After Complaints from Native American Community
If you’re wondering why the ‘Looking Hot’ video is no longer available, well, No Doubt has taken it down. Why? YouTube received complaints from fans and the Native American community. Here’s the explanation from their website:
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.
Below is the original video description from PopCrush.com
Gwen Stefani and No Doubt retreat to the wild, wild west and play cowboys and Indians in their dusty video for ‘Looking Hot.’ With her butt-length locks, headdresses and the feathers in her hair, Stefani is like a blonde, extra-glam Pocahontas.
Stefani rides a horse and invites a wolf into her tent while her bandmates play card games, drink up and are jailed. The band romps around from start to finish.
The singer also dances with fire and tosses a spear, too, turning into a total, tried and true frontier rebel.
