CVS won't carry 'Rolling Stone' with alleged Boston Marathon bomber

Posted on

Looking for a copy of the already-infamous Rolling Stone cover with accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover? You won’t find it at CVS. The pharmacy chain announced it will not carry the current issue in stores.

“CVS/pharmacy has decided not to sell the current issue of Rolling Stone featuring a cover photo of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect. As a company with deep roots in New England and a strong presence in Boston, we believe this is the right decision out of respect for the victims of the attack and their loved ones,” a rep for CVS said in a statement to EW.

CVS appears to be in good company boycotting the current issue: A Facebook group calling on people not to buy it has climbed to over 56,000 fans.
