CVS/Pharmacy and Tedeschi Food’s, Inc. will not sell the issue of “Rolling Stone” magazine that features suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhkohar Tsarnaev on the cover.
Tedeschi posted the following on its Facebook page:
“Tedeschi Food Shops supports the need to share the news with everyone, but cannot support actions that serve to glorify the evil actions of anyone. With that being said, we will not be carrying this issue of Rolling Stone. Music and terrorism don’t mix!”
CVS released the following statement:
“CVS/pharmacy has decided not to sell the current issue of Rolling Stone featuring a cover photo of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect. As a company with deep roots in New England and a strong presence in Boston, we believe this is the right decision out of respect for the victims of the attack and their loved ones.”
