2:38:55 PMStores say they won't carry Rolling Stone featuring Boston bombing suspect
A Rolling Stone cover story on Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is generating controversy.
The magazine's cover is a photo in which Tsarnaev looks more like one of the rock stars that usually grace it than a suspect in a high-profile bombing. A preview on the magazine's website says the story by contributing editor Janet Reitman traces how "a bright kid with a charming future became a monster."
Some Twitter users call the decision to use the photo disgraceful.
Two New England-based retailers announced Wednesday they will not carry the magazine in their stores: Woonsocket, R.I.-based pharmacy chain CVS, and a Rockland, Mass.-based convenience store chain, Tedeschi Food Shops.
An email seeking comment was sent to Rolling Stone.
Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty in the April 15 bombings.
In this magazine cover image released by Wenner Media, Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev appears on the cover of the Aug. 1, 2013 issue of "Rolling Stone."
