I'm pretty sure that if you're not actively trying to get offended, you won't get offended. Otherwise, you could get mad.
Hmmm . . . well, no doubt, if you have a pre-conceived notion about the motives of RS, in particular, AND you wish to be offended . . . then, yeah, I can understand that person being offended.
ETA: From a stylistic and graphic standpoint, RS has a lot more information on its cover about the content of any given issue. There's really no practical way to have put photos of the victims on the cover.
