Effects of Social Distance on Consumers’ Responses to Company Transgression

Based on theory of psychological distance, the authors examined how social distance and the severity of transgression influence the relationship between a transgressing company and other (close and distant) consumers. The authors showed that close (vs. distant) consumers could behave more (vs. less) similarly to the victim of the transgression.
