Here is more of the statement, by People:

As a team, we’ve avoided addressing the nonsensical gossip surrounding the film we’re so proud of, but feel the need to correct the anonymous “sources.” quoted in a recent article. Any allegations of unprofessional behavior on the set of don’t worry darling are completely wrong. We’re happy to put our names to this, as real people who worked on the film, and who witnessed and benefited from the safe, collaborative space that Olivia creates as director and leader.
