Rolling Stone Cover Controversy

Rolling Stone magazine put Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover of its August issue, drawing harsh criticism from the online world that it glorifies the alleged bomber.

The cover, which features a self-taken portrait of Tsarnaev sporting shaggy hair and a goatee, identifies him simply as "The Bomber," while promising to explain "how a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam, and became a monster."

However, its presence on the cover of Rolling Stone, a space typically occupied by rock stars and actors, sparked outrage on Twitter and Facebook, where many observers objected to what they saw as the glamorization of Tsarnaev.
