Rolling Stone has jumped on the despicable “Hey, let’s totally glorify terror” train with a cover featuring Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Terror groupies didn’t find it glamorizing enough, but those with a moral compass are utterly disgusted.
MLB pitcher Brad Ziegler called the mag out and fans agreed:

@BradZiegler Let other players know the more people the better. I live in Boston and was livid when I saw it

Others call for a boycott of the mag as well.

So if you bomb a marathon and kill innocent people, you get on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Absolute insanity! #BoycottRollingStone

The Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher, who is also the founder of Pastime For Patriots which supports our troops and their families, ends with an exit reminder:
When you're looking for great sacrifices for our freedoms in our country's history, don't forget this story: http://t.co/nO44QkCyV9
