A group on the frontlines of Minnesota's COVID-19 pandemic got a special shoutout this past week, courtesy of Ellen DeGeneres.
On Friday's episode of her talk show, the comedian featured nurses from Regions Hospital as part of her "12 Days of Giveaways" segment, which seeks to honor "heroes from around the country."
With help from "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston, DeGeneres announced the nurses would be receiving $250 gift cards for Fini Shoes, a Black-owned New York business that allows buyers to customize their kicks.
There was one little flub in the otherwise triumphant segment, however. Ellen said Regions is located in Minneapolis, when in fact it's located in St. Paul.
