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 get the urge to not sell it, but that action only makes the magazine more desirable. Tell people they can't have something and everybody will want it. They should carry the mag and let it sit and rot on the shelf. Who would pay good money for it??

Good! I hope the whole world bans it! Seeing him all sexied up, for his match.com or instagram account or whatever this selfie was for, on the cover of Rolling Stone makes me sick! Remember, the bomb HE detonated is the one that tore apart the body of an innocent 8 year old boy!!!

I would just suggest people read the article before passing judgment on the cover. I can see a picture of Hitler and it doesn't want to make me commit atrocities. Just another thing for people to get their panties in a bunch over.

This cover makes me sick. I will never buy this magazine again. People today that are losers and have nothing going for themselves look at publicity like this as a way to get noticed. Their faces should not even be in the news they should be thrown in jail and that's it.
