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.

CVS
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."

CVS

  • Good for you
  • Anti-democratic
It's kind of a bizarre reaction, since the story is about how Tsarnaev "fell into radical Islam and became a monster."

So we gotta ask ...

I don't understand.. no any suspect has ever made to any magazine's cover?? How about Osama Bin Laden? Hasn't his photo been posted on covers of Time and Daily News? Go, google it.. and relax..

this magazine cover has nothing to do with democracy, it has to do with people becoming celebrities in the wrong way. Its a disgraceful thing for our young people to see. too many bad things have happened to the country in the name of "against the constitution" like God out of the country and prayer out of schools etc.

I also need to comment on the marine who said its o.k. to urinate on bodies of the taliban. They are our ememy its o.k. to kill them in war. But marines are supposed to be respectful and an example to our young men. Its not "macho" to piss on a body. We are a family of Marines Viet Nam, Korea, Desert Storm and Iraq. one is in Afghanistan now. Purple heart winners none of them would piss on a body !!
