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.

Eyewitness says she saw a police SUV run over Tamerlane and then shut multiple times by police. He was said before he got in the ambulance. Jahar had nothing to do with it. The police keep lying.


Why is this whole case based on lies? Just like the charges against George Zimmerman. They want your guns and your rights to defend yourself.

Oh good lord. And we wonder why Edward Snowden left the country to RETAIN his voice in the face of government BS? Now you know, ladies and germs. You people throw stones at China and Saddam-days Iraq for censorship, but the requests from the stupid public about boycotts, recalling, reprinting of this cover aren't equally OPPRESSIVE??? Betta' Check Ya'Self.
Oh, I forgot you all believe he scribbled his confession inside that boat, right? And that his brother's friend went berzerk during a "ROUTINE" FBI interview in Florida, right? LOL. Okkkkkkaaaay, sheeple. Ignorance is bliss I guess. Lets not forget these are crimes HE HAS ALLEGEDLY COMMITTED. ALLEGEDLY. Are people still considered innocent in this country until proven guilty? Or is the lynch mob court of public opinion override that level of intelligence and judiciary process?

You can hear Jahar talking in this video without any Russian accent at all. Then when you see his picture after he was shot, he looks dead lying on the gurney. If he was not dead, he was nearly dead.


I wonder if they have him in a hidden ICU somewhere. I think his family is too terrified to say that it wasn't him in court or on the phone.

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.

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.
