There has been some recent controversy surrounding the Afghanistan veteran contestant on America’s Got Talent.
Poe has been able to win over the heart of both the judges and the crowd by talking about the injuries he received while on duty overseas in Afghanistan.
Poe, who is a member of the National Guard, went on to say how he received multiple head injuries and has developed a stutter due to his time in combat.
This story seems heart-wrenching and makes the audience adore Poe’s talent.
There have been allegations though, that are pointing towards the fact that Poe has fabricated the story of his injuries.
A spokesperson for the National Guard made a statement that Poe’s records so no such sign of the injuries he is talking about.
Another source told the media that Poe was actually injured during training, not combat like he insisted.
It will be interesting to see what the true story it.
