Rolling Stone slammed for Boston bomber cover

Rolling Stone magazine is getting slammed for a cover featuring accused Boston bomber Jahar Tsarnaev.The magazine's cover subjects have drawn their share of controversy over the years, whether it was Charles Manson or Britney Spears. But Mr. Tsarnaev seems to have drawn a far stronger reaction, with online commenters arguing that the photo choice portrays the man allegedly responsible for killing three people and injuring many more as a pop star.A commenter on Rolling Stone's Facebook page suggested that "Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs, should be on cover." That remark accumulated more than 2,200 "likes"; Rolling Stone's own Facebook post with the cover has just more than 1,400."A few years ago you had a contest where the most popular unsigned band got the glory of being on the cover of your magazine," another Facebook commenter wrote. "Who knew all you had to do was bomb a bunch of innocent people to have Rolling Stone make you look like a rock star?""The RS cover makes the bomber look like the new Jim Morrison," a commenter said on a Rolling Stone blog post promoting the issue. "A star is born and a once-great mag circles the drain."Tedeschi Food Shops, a New England chain, said on its Facebook page that it will not sell the issue. "Music and terrorism don't mix!" its post said.CVS stores won't stock the issue either, according to a statement from the company. "CVS/pharmacy has decided not to sell the current issue of Rolling Stone featuring a cover photo of the Boston... Continue reading at 'Crains New York'
