(No) Offense Taken: Value Creation Vs Value Destruction By Brand-Offended Consumers

Consumers often post negative comments on brand social media with intentions to harm (value-destruction). We examine if this action backfires, instead strengthening observing consumers’ relationships with the brand. We illustrate that consumers attack brands on social media for different reasons, and also investigate why consumers defend brands against others’ attacks.
