Rolling Stone magazine has ignited a firestorm of controversy after deciding to use Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the front cover of its latest issue. The image shows a close-up of Tsarnaev’s face, with his hair shaggy, wearing a T-shirt. The headline reads: “The Bomber: How a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam and became a monster.” Angry readers took to Rolling Stone’s Facebook page to express their outrage at the cover. Here is just a small sample of some of the comments.

“Maybe you guys should be a class act and take that scumbag terrorist murderer of the Boston Marathon off your August cover.”

“What a punch to the gut of every Bostonian. Absolutely unbelievable.”

"Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs, should be on cover"
