'Stranger Things' Creators Matt & Ross Duffer Respond to Abuse Allegation

The Duffer Brothers – Matt and Ross – have been accused of verbally abusing women on the set of Stranger Things and they’re responding the allegation.

Peyton Brown, a crew member on the first two seasons, posted to Instagram saying that she would not return for a third season because of the alleged abuse.

“I personally witnessed two men in high positions of power on that set seek out and verbally abuse multiple women,” she wrote in the deleted Instagram post. “I promised myself that if I were ever in a situation to say something that I would. I have 11.5 thousand followers who can hear me say this, TIME IS UP.”

Here is the Duffer Brothers‘ statement in response: “We are deeply upset to learn that someone felt uncomfortable on our set. Due to the high-stress nature of production, tempers occasionally get frayed, and for that, we apologize. However, we think it is important not to mischaracterize our set, where we believe strongly in treating everyone fairly regardless of gender, orientation, race, religion, or anything else. We remain totally committed to providing a safe and collaborative working environment for everyone on our productions.”
