No Doubt Pull 'Racially Offensive' Video
No Doubt have pulled the video for their first comeback single after complaints that it was racially offensive. The "Looking Hot" video features the band dressed as Native Americans fighting with cowboys. You can see it in the player below, which could soon be taken down by their label Interscope on copyright grounds. The band have responded to the complains in a statement 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... 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." Of course, there's a chance that no-one really complained and the apology is just a way to rally up news and drive people to hear the new single, since their new album "Push & Shove" is their first release as a band for at least 11 years. Watch the No Doubt video for "Looking Hot" here:
Do you think the video is racially offensive? Could the whole thing be a con to gather press attention? Let us know what you think in the comments.
