No Doubt removed their video for “Looking Hot” online almost immediately after uploading it after receiving multiple complaints that the imagery used in the visual was insulting to Native Americans.
The Wild West-themed video which served the band’s second single off their new album Push and Shove features a number of tepees, Native American headdresses and smoke signals. Soon after the video’s premiere on Friday, No Doubt received objections for using the stereotypical imagery/props in their fan forums. No Doubt quickly removed the video from their video channels and addressed the controversy with a written apology on 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.”
