The magazine's major online presence is on Facebook, where they are being badgered by outrage and thusfar are ignoring it. But the magazine itself is apparently distributed for free in stores in the Northeast. So if you live in that region, check out the freebies in your grocery stores to see if they distribute it. If so, ask to speak to a manager, and urge them to stop carrying the magazine. Because that's the only way to actually impact the company. Their response indicates to me that this may not be the only time they've pulled such a stunt. Such behavior must be discouraged.
