On Politics, Morality, and Consumer Response to Negative Publicity
This research demonstrates that political ideology influences consumer responses to non-partisan negative publicity brand events by shaping their moral belief systems. Using experimental and big data methods, we show that liberals (vs. conservatives) endorse individuals’ rights (vs. duty)-based moral beliefs, leading to divergent attitudes toward brands under negative publicity.
