Rolling Stone Cover Featuring Boston Bombing Suspect Sparks Outrage On Social Media

It was announced on Tuesday that Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will appear on the August 3rd edition of Rolling Stone magazine.

The photo that will appear on the cover is a self-taken portrait of Tsarnaev with a title of "The Bomber." Rolling Stone says the story will explain "how a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam, and became a monster."

The magazine, normally featuring musicians, actors and pop stars on the covering, is drawing some heat in the world of social media, as some say the photo and story glamorizes Tsarnaev.
