Stephen Colbert addressed the growing controversy surrounding the Rolling Stone cover featuring alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev during a segment on Wednesday's episode of The Colbert Report.

He mocked the magazine industry by suggesting that organizing a boycott of the issue would be difficult because you'd have to find people who actually buy magazines. Then, he pointed out that Roman Polanski, O.J. Simpson, and Charles Manson have all been prominently featured on the cover of Rolling Stone.

Colbert closes out the segment by assuring Rolling Stone that he won't be baited into holding up a copy of the issue and giving the magazine any more free publicity.
