Mag Cover Features Bombing Suspect

How to ignite a firestorm online and across social media: Put Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnev on the August cover of Rolling Stone Magazine. The hashtag #BoycottRollingStone has been trending on Twitter all morning. @BostonBachelor wrote: Hey @RollingStone you could have honored any victim of the Bombing with your cover.

Question: Does Rolling Stone deserve the social media firestorm it created by putting the Boston Marathon bombing suspect on the cover?
