No Doubt new video pulled for being offensive..!

The return of No Doubt is still a hugh topic of conversation as their new album Push & Shove is added to the shortlist for the Snap Cackle Pop Music Awards. However their latest video has caused controversy as the clip for brilliant track Looking Hot has been deemed offensive to Native Americas and receiving many racism complaints making the band remove the video from YouTube and issuing the following apology.

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. 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. - No Doubt

We find it hard to believe that Gwen and the boys would deliberately go out to cause such offensive and reckon they are deeply sorry. These guys rock and you know it. Check out them performing on UK X-Factor below and get your copy of their new album Push & Shove on iTunes now..!
