D2. When a Negative Review Can Help the Company: the Role of the Unfairness and Empathy

This work extends literature on the influence of justice perception on consumer behavior by showing that consumers sensitize with injustice perpetrated on companies by other consumers. We demonstrate that injustice episodes trigger feelings of empathy and, consequently, lead witnesses to present favorable attitudes and more purchase intention towards the company.
