No Doubt has removed the band's "Looking Hot" music video from YouTube after receiving complaints from fans and the Native American community.
In the video, singer Gwen Stefani wears Native American clothing while being tied to poles and fighting cowboys.
That just sounds like another Friday night at Madonna's house.
"As a multiracial 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," Stefani, Tony Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont explained on the band's official website. "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 statement continued, "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."
Yeah? Then why don't you return my calls, Gwen? I find that kind of hurtful.
"Looking Hot" is the second single from the band's latest album, "Push and Shove."
