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.

I guess they could have used another pic. The guy does look like he is posing for one of his Facebook pic. I have to say what he did was so wrong, but he is not a bad looking guy.

Wow people, lighten up. It's an article about a subject which everyone in the US was involved in. They are just covering it, like they cover a lot of subjects. The article itself tells about how a person like that became a bomber. Personally, I don't find the article offensive. What he did was offensive. However, that picture is no different than all the other pictures of him in the media.
