[UPDATE] Rolling Stone It's Irresponsible to Boycott Our Boston Bomber Cover

The Boston supermarket chain Roche Bros. is also boycotting the magazine -- a rep tells TMZ, "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."

Walgreens and Stop & Shop have also boycotted the magazine.

apparently believes the First Amendment has limits ... because the pharmacy chain just announced it won't hawk the latest issue of Rolling Stone, featuring Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover.

A rep for CVS says "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."


  1. I don't blame them for the boycott. To appear on the cover of such a cool rock 'n roll magazine could make this guy into some kind of trendy hero or at least spread his notoriety and give other nut-bars ideas.


  2. HA !
    Rolling Stone was out to make money ... but it backfired on them .
