Rolling Stone Magazine Places Accused Boston Marathon Bomber on Cover – Rockers React
The latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine features Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover, and the decision has caused widespread fury online. Countless individuals have used social media to express their outrage, including musicians such as Dave Navarro, Tommy Lee, Scott Ian and many others.
Disturbed / Device singer David Draiman wrote a long piece admonishing Rolling Stone for the cover (seen here), which we reported on earlier today. Though Draiman may remain the most vocal musician currently entwined in his outrage, many other notable names have gone to their Twitter accounts to protest Rolling Stone’s cover, with some even calling for a boycott of the iconic magazine.
Check out these reactions to Rolling Stone placing one of the Boston bombers on the rag’s cover:
