Rolling Stone's August 2013 issue that put a glam-pic of a terrorist on the cover. It didn't go over well.

Rolling Stone stupidly decided to put a glam-pic of convincted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on their cover, which drew widespread criticism that the magazine was "glamorizing terrorism", and was a "slap in the face to the great city of Boston". Many stores (CVS Pharmacy, Tedeschi, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, Kmart, 7-Eleven, and a few others) refused to carry the issue. And it earned an angry letter from Boston mayor Thomas Menino. It was poor judgement, at best.
