Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev face will appear on Rolling Stone Magazine’s all across the country come Aug. 3.
The cover, features a self-taken portrait of him stating “THE BOMBER” How a Popular, Promising Student Was Failed by His Family, Fell into Radical Islam and Became a Monster.”
According to Buzzfeed.com contributing editor Janet Reitman spent the last two months interviewing dozens of sources. We are talking childhood and high school friends, teachers, neighbors and law enforcement agents, many of whom spoke for the first time about the case – to deliver a riveting and heartbreaking account of how a ‘charming’ kid with a bright future became a monster.
The actual story has not been posted yet but the reaction to the cover, specifically on social media has been quite negative, leaving people outraged and appalled that such a respected magazine would feature such an individual on the cover.
Rolling Stone describes the younger Boston bombing suspect as a monster but depicts him like Morrison-esque rockstar. http://t.co/SjqvGnT62p— Buster Brown (@BusterBrown125) July 17, 2013
