United Pulls New Issue Of Rolling Stone Magazine From Shelves
Unless you have been living under a rock the past few days, I am sure you have heard all the controversy going on over Rolling Stone deciding to put (what amounts to a man version of a glamor shot) of “accused” Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaey on the cover of this months magazine.
I personally am glad to see that United Supermarkets here in Lubbock has opted out of putting this months edition of the magazine on their shelves.
When asked about this decision Robert Taylor, CEO of United Supermarkets, LLC had this to say, “This was an easy business decision for us,” “To do anything that would glorify terrorist behavior simply goes against what our company stands for.
As for me, I say way to go United for taking a stand for American by refusing to distribute the magazine this month.
