If you were anywhere near the internet last week you likely saw the viral video of Adam Sandler leaving an IHOP after a hapless hostess didn't recognize him and tried to make him wait 30 minutes for table.
Well, Sandler has responded to the incident on Twitter, and in true Sandlerian fashion, has put a hilarious spin on the whole thing.
It all came down to milkshakes, you see.
For the record, I only left the IHOP because the nice woman told me the all-you-can-eat deal didn’t apply to the milkshakes.— Adam Sandler (@Adam Sandler)1620098310.0
A publicist for the star confirmed it was in fact Sandler in the footage, but beyond that, Sandler has chosen to just chuckle about the situation.
In his tweet, Sandler quipped:
"For the record, I only left the IHOP because the nice woman told me the all-you-can-eat deal didn't apply to the milkshakes."
Sandler's response is the newest chapter in this saga, which had the internet laughing last week.
It all began with a TikTok posted by IHOP employee Dayanna Rodas, in which she included security footage of her encounter with Sandler.
It was all a simple—but hilarious—mistake.
Rodas failed to recognize the star when he and his daughter came in and relayed to him it would be a 30 minute wait for a table, whereupon Sandler walked out, leaving Rodas deeply embarrassed once she realized what had happened.
Was Sandler truly disappointed he wouldn't be able to gorge himself on delicious IHOP milkshakes? Or was he just trying to avoid having to wait for 30 minutes just to get some pancakes?
We may never know.
But one thing is for sure. Rodas' TikTok has so far been viewed more than 11 million times, so suffice to say the embarrassing moment has resonated.
