‘Stranger Things’ crew member accuses Duffer Brothers of verbally abusing women on set


Peyton Brown apparently worked on Stranger Things as a member of the crew, but indicated she won’t be back for season three due to allegations that she “personally witnessed two men in high positions of power on that set seek out and verbally abuse multiple women.”

In an Instagram post issued on Thursday, Brown — who, according to her Instagram page, has also worked on such series as The Walking Dead — did not identify the people she was discussing, and did not describe the exact nature of the verbal abuse.

“I promised myself that if I were ever in a situation to say something that I would,” she writes. “I have 11.5 thousand followers who can hear me say this, TIME IS UP.”

While Brown didn’t identify the people she was discussing, in a reply to a comment to her post she confirms that she’s speaking about the Duffer Brothers, a.k.a. Stranger Things creators Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer.

In a response to another comment, she details the alleged behaviour, writing that “there was yelling, there were insults, there were threats and people were even fired or forced to quit because of them.”

Reps for Netflix and the Duffer brothers have yet to respond to Brown’s allegations.
