Controversial “Rolling Stone” Magazine Cover Draws Criticism on Social Media

The latest issue of “Rolling Stone” doesn’t hit the newsstands until Friday, but the latest cover featuring a photograph of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has many retailers that normally carry the publication refusing to sell it.  The social media has exploded with outrage, and #BoycottRollingStone is trending on Twitter. 

The photo isn’t of a mugshot, it was a photo taken by Tsarnaev himself.  The cover of the magazine is traditionally saved for the biggest celebrities and musicians, and it’s not always shot in a traditional way.  But this isn’t the first time “Rolling Stone” has published a “controversial” subject on the cover.  In 1970, the magazine published a story about and gave the cover to Charles Manson.
