No Doubt removes “Looking Hot” music video

In Regards to Our “Looking Hot” Music Video: "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. - No Doubt” [SOURCE]

Santoine: See see see

what’s interesting in that they consulted people about this before making it

so they got permission from some band(s) to do this

but i wonder if those ‘experts’ were white people

i’m still glad they apologized

but this puts a slightly different spin on things
