“Petition calls for Rolling Stone to donate profits from latest issue to Boston Marathon bombing victims”
“While scores of celebrities took to Twitter to vent their anger over the apparent romanticizing of an alleged terrorist, Jack Osbourne – son of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne – has taken things one step further.
Last week, he launched a petition on Change.org urging Rolling Stone magazine to donate all profits made from the current edition’s sale (retail and advertising revenue) to the victims, surviving family members and first responders adversely affected by the Boston Marathon bombings.
“Glamorizing a suspected terrorist on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine is not controversial, it’s just wrong. Innocent people have been killed or injured by the alleged actions of this man. There is no justification for awarding him a cover spot traditionally reserved for entertainment icons,” he wrote in the petition letter. “It is this kind of action that encourages other sick individuals to act out in hopes of earning notoriety or martyrdom for their cause.””
