Rolling Stone

'Bomber' Cover

Banned at 7-Eleven

Rolling Stone's cover story about the Boston Marathon bomber just got the magazine yanked out of nearly 2,000 7-Eleven stores, and more could follow ... TMZ has learned.

The omnipresent convenient store is joining the national outrage over the mag's upcoming issue with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover, and an investigation into his life leading up to the bombing.

A rep for 7-Eleven, Inc. tells TMZ it "will not sell the Aug. 1 issue of the Rolling Stone magazine in its company-operated stores."

There are 1,700 company operated stores -- and another 5,900 franchised stores. The rep says they'll also urge those franchise owners to pull the issue.

Yesterday, CVS, Walgreens, and Stop & Shop all said they will not sell the issue either.

Mr. Mojorisin    

Rolling stones isn't labeling him a hero. The media and society is. The article is informing us how a promising kid can fall into the wrong hands and become a monster. Just because he is on the cover doesn't glorify anything. Everyone knows that he is a murderer. Boycotting is going to do what? Nothing. They will make their money. you guys are glorifying this terrorist even more by boycotting and making this image be all over tv and tmz. Think about it. No boycott and its just another Rolling Stones issue. Boycott and its going to be all over the media. World peace.

I've never seen Osama, Saddam, Timothy McVeigh, or the columbine kids on the cover of rolling stone. So what makes this guy so different?...

Bleeding Heart Liberal Journalist, This is what they do portray EVIL as having a heart and such a Bad Childhood...Bull Shyte...This Evil POS decided to do what he did, cause he believe in his Crazy Cracker Religion...He was over 18 years old, he knew what he was doing. He was the EPIC FAIL, not those around him.

Whatever happened to freedom of speech and freedom of the press? Have you all taken leave of your senses? I thought this was still the US of A, if consumers find it offensive they will not guy it by banning it from sale is un-American. America was founded on freedom of thought & speech.

This is so sick that this magazine put this piece of **** s*** bag on the cover. They're glorifying violence and people should boycott this magazine.

Screw Rolling Stone. I know why they did it and don't agree with it.

They have the right to put it out...
They have the right not to sell it....
I have the right not to buy it and say I think they suck!

Thanks for those rights America.

What's filthy about the Rolling Stone cover is that it is such a distortion of reality. This young man is not a cute and cuddly member of a boy band; he is incarcerated and charged with murder and mayhem in Boston. That is his present reality, and if this magazine wanted him on its cover, that is what they should have shown, not a dreamy Tiger Beat pic. Shame on Rolling Stone for glamorizing this dude with that cover.

Good to see a uniform country taking action that is doing something justified unlike what they did to Paula Dean.
