Adam Sandler ultimately responded to the viral video that captured the moment he was fired from a Long Island IHOP.
The former “Saturday Night Live” star has been praised online for his positive attitude after he and his daughter were told by a teenage restaurant employee that there would be a long wait to be seated, which urged the star to politely leave the restaurant. The teenager shared a video of the brief encounter on TikTok and noted how embarrassed she was that she didn’t recognize the famous comedian and movie star at the time.
Sandler had been silent about the viral video until Monday, when he took to Twitter to make a brief self-defeating joke about the incident and his diet.
“For the record, I only left IHOP because the nice lady told me that the all-you-can-eat deal doesn’t apply to milkshakes,” the star joked.

In a follow-up post, Rodas also noted that Sandler sported a full beard at the time, which she had never seen him do publicly before.
