Earlier this week, Matt and Ross Duffer were accused by a former crewmember in a now-deleted Instagram post of verbally abusing women on the set of Stranger Things.
Today, both Netflix and the Duffer Brothers have responded to the accusations. In their statement, the Duffer Brothers said they 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."
Meanwhile, Netflix's statement confirmed that an investigation took place into the accusations and "and found no wrongdoing." Their statement went on, saying that "(maintaining) a safe, respectful atmosphere on set is important to us, and we know it is to the Duffer Brothers as well."
