Last weekend, popular dancehall teacher Orville Hall tagged Goebel in an Instagram post, asking her if she is "really comfortable with taking someone else's culture n saying it's your creation?"    


"90% of what you do in this video is dancehall and you know this...the steps were not even modified, they were used in their original form," Hall stated.


Goebel hit back:


Goebel, in an attempt to shield herself from the attacks, threatened to block some Instagram followers who left "negative comments".


"If you know me personally or have worked with me before you will know that I LOVE dancehall and have such a huge respect and passion for it. A lot of my routines before sorry have been inspired by dancehall," Goebel said in a Facebook post.


"A lot of my close friends are dancehall teachers and I took a lot of my year this year learning about it because I love it so much. So when this Justin Bieber opportunity came along I thought it would be perfect to showcase dancehall inspiration in a commercial video clip to bring more LIGHT to Dancehall. Unfortunately people are reading so deep and misunderstanding the whole situation and creation of this clip (video).


Just know I have the most respect and love for Dancehall and I am sad to think people think I am using and stealing which I am NOT. When I teach my classes or talk to people I always speak my inspiration for this style and culture. If you are still finding it hard to understand i don't know what else to say. Good luck. People are literally attacking and threatening me over this which it not fair at all. I know I have a good heart and good intention," Goebel's post said.
