No Doubt apologise and remove video

Gwen Stefani's group No Doubt have removed their new video from the internet following accusations of racism.

The band's video for Looking Hot - which includes Native American imagery and showed Gwen wearing a feathered headdress, Tom Dumont and Adrian Young as cowboys and Tony Kanal as a tribe chief - angered some fans, who posted messages online saying it was offensive to the Native American community.

The band later removed the video and apologised, saying they now realised they had offended people but that they did not intend to.

A message on their website 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 trivialise 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 realise 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 apologise to the Native American community and anyone else offended by this video."

The message added that "being hurtful to anyone is simply not who we are".
