Huffington Post

No Doubt - Looking Hot by jimihubabua

No Doubt has taken down their music video for the single "Looking Hot."

Released Friday, the video is cowboys-and-Indians themed and the stereotypical images including headdresses, tepees, and smoke signals. They got negative feedback from the Native American community once the video was posted on YouTube.

"As a multi-racial band our foundation is built upon both diversity and consideration for other cultures," No Doubt said in a statement on their website. "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."

"Looking Hot" is the second single off the band's upcoming album, "Push and Shove."It's the band's first album since 2001's "Rock Steady."
