Rolling Stone's Boston Bomber Cover Sparks Controversy [PHOTO]
Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s face made it on the cover of the new Rolling Stone issue -- causing some to raise eyebrows.
The subtitle reads “how a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam, and became a monster."
The story aims to outline his connection to extremism, his older brother’s possible mental illness, and other aspects of his personal troubles that might have led him to commit to the act of terrorism.
Boycotts are evident on social media as “Boycott Rolling Stone” became a trending topic on Twitter in Boston.
Tsarnev pleaded not guilty on July 10 to 30 counts of a federal indictment following the Boston tragedy.
For a publication like Rolling Stone to put him on the cover doesn't feel right. Legends, important figures, and been on the cover, it's a privilege and an honor to be recognized by the magazine. THey should've put Travyon Martin on the cover.
