After playing an 'AGT' review voicemail from Shuli's mother, Shuli said explained how his parents met while serving in the Israeli army: "[My Dad]'s no joke, dude. And my mom's tougher than him. She swung at me once. I was dating a black girl when I was 15. That didn't go over well at the Egar house." But to this day, Shuli's mom denies any bias: "She always says, 'I am not racial.'"
