The Duffer brothers said in part, "Due to the high-stress nature of production, tempers occasionally get frayed, and for that, we apologize." https://t.co/AxA456pBgG— Hollywood Reporter (@THR) March 11, 2018
Netflix and the Duffer Brothers released separate statements regarding the allegations made by Peyton Brown, a crew member on Stranger Things. The Duffer did not outright deny the allegations, but they do take issue with the accusation that the verbal abuse was aimed specifically at female crew members. The Duffer's statement reads:
“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."
Netflix states that they performed an internal investigation and found no evidence of "wrongdoing."
Lori Grabowski, who served as the script supervisor throughout both seasons of the show, came out in support of Peyton Brown's claims after so many fans called Brown a liar. Her Instagram post is below:
She has also been answering people's DMs on Instagram, and said that many of the main actors witnessed the abuse, and much of the abuse "was done right in front of the children."

I've lost count of how many Netflix sets are a clusterfuck at this point.
