Lee, Fanjue Liu and Mo Chen are the authors of “’Who Should I Blame?’ How Source Identifications of Computer-Generated Imagery Influencers Affect Consumer’s Responsibility Attribution in Brand Endorsement.” The study examines how people attribute responsibility to virtual influencers when they perceive the influencer as a computer-generated virtual person versus as a human in terms of endorsement failure and success.
