A teen accepted to 20 colleges offering him full financial aid wants journalists at a Fox affiliate to apologize for calling his decision to apply to the schools “obnoxious.” They didn’t receive an apology from the station either, she said.

"I think it's a little obnoxious because you can only go to one," Morris commented. “You can only take one full ride and you are taking a spot from someone else who worked really hard.”

Two days later, Micheal said he had a "respectful" interview with Morris, but he will not allow the segment to air until the station issues a public apology. "Where's the #humandecency?" he tweeted.

Micheal's mother Berthinia Rutledge-Brown told USA TODAY that Morris never apologized and instead said "I didn't mean to offend you." They didn't receive an apology from the station either, she said. Fox 5 did not immediately return a request for comment from USA TODAY.

Rutledge-Brown said her son was truly hurt by the comments and she's "numb" over the situation.
