Rolling Stone magazine is currently under fire for putting Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover page of its latest issue.
The charming photo of the teenager was one of the pics circulated during the manhunt for him and his elder brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed during the shootout with the police.
The caption below the picture reads, ‘How a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam and became a monster.’ But people on the social media have blasted the mag for giving ‘rock star’ treatment to the bomber, whose handsomeness has already won the hearts of many female teens.
CVS Pharmacy and supermarket chain Roche Bros. have already announced that they will no longer feature the magazine in their stores. ‘As a company with deep roots in New England and a strong presence in Boston, we believe this is the right decision out of respect for the victims of the attack and their loved ones,’ CVS said, while Roche Bros announced, ‘When Roche Bros. learned of the cover for the current issue of Rolling Stone, we chose not to offer that product for sale in our stores. We join with our customers and neighbors in focusing on the recovery of the victims and our community.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is currently facing 30 federal counts for the bombing that claimed three lives and injured 264 people.
