Adam Sandler Responds After IHOP Host Turned Him Away In Viral Video

Adam Sandler is one of the most humble celebrities of all time. I know this doesn't come as a surprise to many people, but I'm serious. As you may have seen, Adam is so humble that he recently got turned away from an IHOP because the server didn't realize who he was.

Now, the comedian is responding after the video of him has gone viral, because you know something is viral when even I have seen it.

When it comes to celebrities (and how they behave) in restaurants, it's a topic that's endlessly fascinating to people, myself included.

I don't want to give these rich people any more reason to make me resent them, so if I find out that they're rude to people who work in the food industry, I will make it my mission to not be their fan.

Anyone who has worked in a restaurant will tell you it's incredibly stressful. And if you don't know what I'm talking about, please consider yourself ~very~ lucky.

One of the few perks of working in the food industry (besides half-priced entrees) is running into famous celebrities — if you're fortunate enough to live where they do.

However, can you imagine running into one of the biggest celebrities of all time and not even realizing it?

That's what happened to TikTok user Dayanna Rodas recently while she was working her shift at an IHOP.

Taking to the social media platform, the server explained her story.

Personally, I love seeing how my favorite celebrities treat those who work in the food service industry. If they're not nice to serves, I don't want to support them — simple as that!

One of the more recent viral TikToks was from user @theanniebond, who gushed about how amazing Keanu Reeves was to serve.

She explained Keanu came in for lunch with a bunch of "industry stiffs."

He then proceeded to order a dozen oysters for himself "like it's a casual thing to do."

She went on to say he was "so polite" and "so humble" and left a generous tip while picking up the table's bill.

However, TikTok user @dayanna.rodas sadly does not have a similar sweet story because she didn't even realize she was talking to Adam Sandler while working her shift at IHOP.

As you may have seen, a video went viral last week of Adam getting turned away from a busy IHOP.

Sharing the experience on TikTok, user@dayanna.rodas showed CCTV footage inside the restaurant, with Dayanna telling Adam it’ll be a 30-minute wait.

After a brief moment, the actor and his daughter politely decide to leave.

Fans loved how down-to-earth and genuine Adam seemed.

He didn't pull out the "Do you know who I am card" — he just left, because who wants to wait thirty minutes for IHOP, amirite?

Now, Adam is replying to fans in a new tweet.

"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," the comedian tweeted.

I love that he could afford to buy everyone in the country a milkshake but didn't want to shell out that kinda cash at IHOP.

If anything, this makes me love him even more!
