No Doubt Quickly Retract Looking Hot Video Due To Racist Claims
Has No Doubt's long hiatus mean they've lost touch with the current and updated version of political correctness? Unfortunately, it appears the answer is yes. Their video for the new single 'Looking Hot' was quickly withdrawn after fans were offended with its content, Fox News reports.
The video saw the band's lead singer, Gwen Stefani, adorned in Native American attire, or at least their attire according to the movie Pocahontas. Perhaps dressing up as a Native American isn't intrinsically offensive, but perhaps portraying said person as being tied up by an American in a western themed video is. "Our intention with our new video was never to offend, hurt or trivialize Native American people, their culture or their history," said the band. "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."
Fans took to twitter to air their grievances, with the majority of them posting tweets to suggest just how offended they were. Some, however, weren't too bothered, and bemoaned the sensitivity of others. No Doubt appeared on "The X Factor UK" tonight to promote "Push and Shove," released in September.
