Adam Sandler’s response to the whole IHOP fiasco may be batter than the viral video.
Last week, Dayanna Rodas posted a TikTok of purported security footage of the “Hubie Halloween” star entering the pancake house wearing a face mask with one of his daughters by his side.
Rodas, who says she’s the hostess speaking to Sandler in the security footage, reports she told the comedian that it would be a 30 minute wait, prompting Sandler to leave.
“Pleaseee come back,” Rodas captioned her TikTok. “Not realizing its Adam Sandler and telling him its a 30min wait and him ofc leaving bc hes not going to wait 30mins for IHOP.”
A publicist for the “Billy Madison” star confirmed to HuffPost that it was Sandler in the footage but didn’t provide further information.
Well, it seems the former “Saturday Night Live” cast member is now providing a tad more information about the encounter himself — just in true Sandler fashion with a big, ol’ joke.
“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 tweeted Monday.

Some Twitter users gobbled up Sandler’s post like a stack of Rooty Tooty Fresh ’N Fruity:
Legend 🤣— Lance Stewart (@Lance210) May 4, 2021
This kind of response tells me all I need to know about you. You haven’t let your celebrity status go to your head. That you don’t treat others like you are better than them. A great lesson for your son and others.— MG1 (@HoosiersBB) May 4, 2021
Adam Sandler ... my daughter and her college friends met him outside a theater after the movie was over and he stopped to take a picture with them. If you want to catch him being nice, you only have to catch him.— FirstTrumpet (@TrumpetFirst) May 4, 2021
While others cracked jokes of their own:
I’ve got an idea let the young lady make a cameo appearance in one of your movies and you ask her in the scene if she knows who she is dealing with. Lol— hustletillyoudie (@obeasy2012) May 4, 2021
Or recreate this in a way. He goes to a restaurant, she waits on him, he asks for a Milkshake. She tells him they don't serve milkshakes. He gets up and leaves.— LankyHutt (@Lankyhutt) May 4, 2021
Here’s hoping that Sandler got his fill of milkshakes somewhere, and celebrated a bit like this:
