Rolling Stone Boston Bombing Suspect Cover Controversy

Rolling Stone Faces Backlash For Cover Featuring Boston Bombing Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

Rolling Stone is fielding angry responses to the newly unveiled cover of its August issue, which features what many view as a flattering image of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Boston's mayor sent an open letter to the magazine, criticizing the publication for rewarding "a terrorist with celebrity treatment," and CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid say they will not carry the issue in their stores out of respect to the victims of the attack and their families. Despite the growing backlash, Rolling Stone and the writer of the upcoming article are standing by their work — let us know your thoughts on this divisive cover in the comments.
