When Csr Becomes a Liability For Firms in Crises: Effects on Perceived Hypocrisy and Consumer Forgiveness

This research examines circumstances under which positive CSR reputation amplifies negative consumer responses to firm crises. Although a positive CSR reputation becomes a liability for firms experiencing values-related crises, it may still offer a shielding effect, but only for ambiguous crises (i.e. crises that may or may not constitute transgressions).
