7-Eleven joins Rolling Stone protest, refuses to sell Boston Bomber issue

(PIX11)- 7-Eleven is joining a boycott of Rolling Stone’s August issue because of its controversial cover featuring Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

The chain joins drug store giants CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid who have also pulled the issue from shelves, saying it “glamorizes terrorism.”

The photo featured on the cover depicts Tsarnaev staring sadly at the camera.

Some have drawn comparisons to Jim Morrison or Jimi Hendrix.

Rolling Stone has defended the image, pointing out other publications have printed it, and adding the accompanying story upholds the magazine’s tradition of serious and thoughtful journalism.
