No Doubt’s latest video for the new single, “Looking Hot,” sparked controversy last night after fans responded with outrage due to its allegedly offensive Native American themes. It was the group’s “tribal” attire that set off, the normally unnoticeable, seemingly nonexistent No Doubt fan base. The vid was live for only a few hours before the band took it down and released an apologetic statement. They said, “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.” How nice of them to stand by their art, real revolutionaries over there. Kidding. I have no idea if the video was offensive or not because it was taken down so quickly. Plus, unless you’re Native American you don’t really get to decide what’s offensive to Native Americans.
