Adam Sandler finally responds after video of him being turned away from restaurant goes viral
You've got to love the guy
Adam Sandler finally responded to the devastating video of him being turned away from a restaurant after being told there would be a half hour wait for food.
The video recently went viral on TikTok after the 17-year-old waitress who informed him of the wait shared her embarrassment at not realising who it was she was speaking to. Sandler had turned up with his daughter to restaurant chain IHOP (formerly International House of Pancakes), but politely accepted the tragic news, and left the restaurant in search of breakfast elsewhere.
Well now Sandler has commented on the saga, in a way that only Adam Sandler could. In a post on Twitter he said that it wasn't the 30 minute wait on food that saw him walk away.
He wrote: "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."

Further confirming his status as one of the most down-to-earth celebrities in the world there.
The original video of the poor waitress turning away one of the most recognisable faces in America has gathered over 11 million views. The 17-year-old has since tried to explain in another video how she didn't recognise Sandler.

Very nice to see that Sandler has no hard feelings about the whole thing though. The actor and comedian has himself received plenty of praise for how he politely accepted the news of the wait on food and left without a fuss.
No 'do you know who I am' attitude here.
What a guy.
