(Newser) – Dressing up Gwen Stefani as a sexy Native American and having her bound at gunpoint—who could be offended? The Native American community and fans in general, apparently, so No Doubt has pulled its "Looking Hot" video from YouTube, US reports. The band says in a statement that it never meant to "offend, hurt or trivialize Native American people" and even "consulted with Native American friends and Native American studies experts" before making the video. "We realize now that we have offended people."

Newser censored my comment so here it is again. --------------- The Native American community is offended? SO WHAT!!! They are the cry-babies of North America. -------------- You should study the "complete" history of the North American Indians. Then you will understand that my statement is accurate.

I don't know which I'm more surprised by, that people still watch music videos or that bands still make them.
