High school students experience microaggressions, or subtle identity-based slights, although little is known about online microaggressions (Banks & Cicciarelli, 2020; Sue, 2010). Data was collected from 134 adolescents. We used a multiple regression analysis to examine our hypothesis that school connectedness, knowledge about school policy, and social media rumination will significantly predict participants’ likelihood to intervene when witnessing a microaggression on social media. Results indicated that perceived offensiveness of the posts was the only significant predictor of adolescents intervening.
