Abstract

The authors wish to add the following corrections to their paper published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health [1]. In the second paragraph of Section 3.3, “toxic online disinhibition” should be replaced with “assertive coping”. Thus, the sentence should read with “Probing the interaction further revealed that bystanders to online hate reported more online hate perpetration when they reported lower levels of assertive coping (β = 0.439, SE = 0.018, p < 0.001 at −1 SD) and less frequent online hate perpetration when they reported higher levels of assertive coping (β = 0.138, SE = 0.016, p < 0.001 at +1 SD; Figure 1).” In the third paragraph of Section 3.3, “assertive coping” and “toxic online disinhibition” should both be replaced with “technical coping”. Thus, the sentence should read “Probing the interaction further revealed that bystanders to online hate reported more online hate perpetration when they reported lower levels of technical coping (β = 0.489, SE = 0.019, p < 0.001 at −1 SD) and less frequent online hate perpetration when they reported higher levels of technical coping (β = 0.110, SE = 0.016, p < 0.001 at +1 SD; Figure 2).” We apologize for any inconvenience caused to the readers by this change. The changes do not affect the scientific results. The published version will be updated on the article webpage, with a reference to this Erratum.
