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.
