Rolling Stone is being criticized for its new cover featuring the alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The August issue shows a picture of Tsarnaev with a headline that reads, “The Bomber: How a Popular, Promising Student Was Failed By His Family, Fell Into Radical Islam and Became a Monster.”
Some on social media like Twitter and Facebook are reacting with disgust saying the magazine shouldn’t be glamorizing terrorism. In light of the negative feedback, CVS Pharmacy says it won’t be selling the August issue of Rolling Stone.
