How Consumer Brand Sabotage Affects Observing Consumers: Buffering Versus Amplifying Effects of Consumers’ Prior Self-Brand Connections

We find observing consumer brand sabotage (CBS) activity decreases brand attitudes and purchase intentions—even more so for value- versus performance-based CBS. The impact of CBS further depends on the strength of consumers’ prior self-brand connections wherein a buffering effect emerges for performance-based while an amplifying effect for value-based CBS.
