'Stranger Things' Writers Address Controversial Report

·1 min read

Writers on the hit Netflix show set the record straight regarding recent internet rumors of editing past scenes.

After a report from British GQ ignited controversy by accusing Netflix's Stranger Things creators of retroactively editing scenes, writers on the show took to Twitter to clear things up—and they couldn't help but throw some shade at the publication for ironically having to issue a correction to their own report.

"It's hilarious that an article bashing the show for retroactively editing a scene (based off a false TikTok rumor) has now had to retroactively edit their own article. Oops," the verified "stranger writers" account on Twitter wrote on Wednesday, July 27.

The rumor gained traction after internet users claimed the creators went back and cut portions of a scene in Season 1, where Jonathan Byers (Charlie Heaton) photographs Nancy Wheeler (Natalia Dyer) without her consent while she is changing.

In a prior tweet, the writers of the hit Netflix series ensured fans that the retroactive editing rumors were completely fake, and that the scene in question has remained perfectly intact since the show first premiered in 2016.

"PSA: no scenes from previous seasons have ever been cut or re-edited. And they never will be," the account tweeted, alongside a very appropriate GIF of Gaten Matarazzo's character Dustin Henderson yelling, "I swear on my mother!" from a season 4.
