The magazine’s readers especially from Boston have slammed the magazine on its Facebook page, alleging that the cover treatment is projecting the accused killer into a “rock star.”

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has also written to Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner in which he accuses the magazine of giving “celebrity treatment” to Tsarnaev and calls the cover “ill-conceived, at best,” and supports the “terrible message that destruction gains fame for killers and their ’causes.'”
