Rolling Stone's Dzhokhar Tsarnaev cover story has inspired an ever-growing list of boycotts among retail outlets, including now by 7-Eleven stores.

The chain is joining the outrage at Rolling Stone, which put Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover with a piece on his life leading up to the Boston bombing.

A rep for 7-Eleven, Inc. says that it "will not sell the August 1 issue of the Rolling Stone magazine" inside any of its 1,700 company-operated stores.

There are another 5,900 franchised stores, and the rep says they'll also urge those franchise owners to pull the issue spotlighting the alleged terrorist.

CVS, Walgreens, and Stop & Shop have also boycotted the issue.

What do you think of the controversial Rolling Stone cover?
