On Wednesday, Fox News host Laura Ingraham mocked Hogg on her Twitter account about his not getting accepted to some colleges.
David Hogg, a self-appointed spokesman for a generation, revealed on Tuesday that four universities he has applied to have rejected his application.
The Florida high school student. A survivor of the February 14 shooting in Parkland. Recently helped organize the March For Our Lives, said four different campuses in the University of California school system have turned him down.
Hogg, 17, said fellow survivor Ryan Deitsch was also turned down by UCLA.
“It’s not been too great for me and some of the other members of the movement, like Ryan Deitsch,” he said, according to TMZ.
David Hogg pushes Laura Ingraham boycott after Fox News host taunts him over college admissions.
David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.)
“I am not surprised at all in all honesty. I think there’s a lot of amazing people that don’t get to college, not only that do things like I do but because their voices just aren’t heard in the tsunami of people that apply every year to colleges in such an economic impacted school system here which we have here in America where people have to go into massive amounts of debt just to go to college and get an education,” he said.
“I think it’s really sad but it’s the truth.”
Hogg said he had been accepted at Florida Atlantic University, Cal Poly and Cal State San Marcos.
“If colleges want to support us in that, great, if they don’t it doesn’t matter, we’re still going to change the world,” he said.
