In the video, Gwen Stefani and bandmate Tony Kanal reportedly dress as Native Americans, dance in a teepee with a wolf and fight other members of the band dressed as cowboys. In another scene, Stefani is tied up by a sheriff character.
Some Native Americans were offended by the video, and the band apologized on their official website and pulled the video. The statement read: "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."
The band's statement continued: "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."
The single was off the band's new album, Push and Shove.
