Better Safe Than Sorry: Effects of Brand Hatred on Preferences For Competing Brands

This research examines effects of brand hatred. While previous work has focused on the impact on the hated brand, we examine the impact of hatred on the brand’s competitors. We show that hatred for a brand leads consumers to eschew close competitors in favor of more distant competitors.
