Rolling Stone Puts Boston Bomber on Cover; Stores Refuse to Sell

Rolling Stone’s latest cover with the infamous 19-year-old Boston Marathon bomber has created a thunderstorm of anger from critics this week – even fueling several stores to refuse to sell the magazine.

According to Fox News, at least five retailers (including CVS and Walgreens pharmacies) do not have plans to sell the acclaimed political/pop culture-focused mag for its decision to feature Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on its cover. The above-mentioned retailers have close ties to New England.

Tsarnaev, along with his late brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, were named suspects in the tragic April 15, 2013 bombing, which left three people dead and more than 250 injured.

Dzhokhar was captured a few days after the bombing, hidden inside a dry docked boat in Watertown, a Boston suburb.
