The same idiots are going to make a lot of profit from people like you who react the same way you did, purchase their magazine to see what the **** is up with it.

Wrong. There will be a lot of publicity generated by this and maybe people will seek this issue out but no large retailers here in Boston and much (if not all) of Massachusetts are selling it. I imagine people with subscriptions (of which I'm not one) will still get it delivered but we have at least one state here that is close to a total boycott. Here in Boston people are serious about this and not at all amused. Nationwide I imagine it's going to be available but I bet there are retailers here and there that also won't sell it. Tsarnaev has a story, he probably wasn't born evil but there are a lot of us that don't need to see him become humanized. He's scum that we want to see fried. And I say this as an anti-death penalty hypocrite. He's not just a criminal, he's an enemy of the United States that made our whole state suffer because of his insane idiocy. Rolling Stone isn't going to win on this one. Not here in Boston.

And if it isn't obvious, no, I'm not buying their magazine.

Because they put a terrorist on the cover and are trying to make him sympathetic, saying he was "failed by his family." Who wouldn't see how that could be offensive?

Agreed. The article explains a lot, but lets face it, if he were an uglier man he would not be on the cover.

Along with his entire, boycotting state. You, however, are not being extra-stupid. You are always this stupid.

is it in their history to put criminals of currency on their covers?

but either way, using a glam shot of him is ludicrous. i mean, what f--ktard at RS thought that would be a good idea?

The defense is that they also gave a cover to Charles Manson.



They seem to operate based on the premise that "all publicity is good publicity." Well, let's see how they like some boycott-flavored publicity.

It's ok for cable news to splash his face on millions of television screens 24 hours a day but we should all freak out because they printed his ugly mug on some shiny paper.

Got it.

thx. i notice the manson cover is quite a bit different, too... almost like hes looking to the heavens for... something. you could almost just see the picture alone and think "there will be some insights about this crazy asshole inside."

you see the current picture and think more like "RS thinks this guy will be the next big act."

I knew someone was going to post this.

People don't seem to care about the media doing all explicit and "demoralizing" stuff but once the Boston bomber photo comes up everyone has sand in their ******..

You're a child, so you speak this way. "Only" 3 people died, many more were maimed and injured, the whole city and large parts of the state got put on lock down for days. You thinking it's trivial because NY had something worse happens just shows how truly ignorant you are. Your foolishness and childishness aren't unbelievable because our modern society permits people like you to be coddled idiots and it's apparent that the only thing that could teach you how wrong your thinking is would be to have something horrible like this to happen in your hometown around people you know because the hard-headed only learn the hard way. I pray this doesn't happen because I know that people don't deserve to suffer just because you're a stupid jackass. May you be stupid forever.
