"These are the same kids who cry about their grades because they didn't think they'd really have to read and study the material to get a good grade", Dettwyler wrote. Maybe in the USA, where young, white, rich, clueless white males routinely get away with raping women.

The spokesman also said that the Obama administration never officially requested Warmbier's release and refused to establish any kind of dialogue with North Korea. "And of course, it's Ottos' parents who will pay the price for the rest of their lives".

"The University of DE values respect and civility and we are committed to global education and study overseas; therefore we find these comments particularly distressing and inconsistent with our values". It is the first official comments by the country on the state in which it returned Warmbier to his family.

The North's official state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) released a statement from an unidentified foreign ministry official in Pyongyang on Friday, defending their actions and insisting that although the country "had no reason at all to show mercy to such a criminal of the enemy state", Warmbier was provided with "medical treatments and care with all sincerity on humanitarian basis until his return to the U.S".

Reuters/KyodoOtto Warmbier was detained in North Korea for 17 months and died a week after returning home to the U.S. Dettwyler declined to comment.

"Although we had no reason at all to show mercy to such a criminal of the enemy state, we provided him with medical treatments and care with all sincerity on humanitarian basis until his return to the USA, considering that his health got worse", the spokesman said.

The University of Delaware's Facebook page has been flooded with comments calling for Dettwyler to be fired.
