A hostess at IHOP, a.k.a. the International House of Pancakes, has shared a bonkers TikTok vid where she reveals that she turned Adam Sandler away from the restaurant without realising who the fuck she was denying entry to.
Dayanna Rodas shared a vid featuring surveillance footage from the American restaurant, located in Long Island, where she can be seen holding an iPad and turning a masked Sandler and his daughter away.
“Not realising it’s Adam Sandler and telling him it’s a 30 min wait and him [of course] leaving because he’s not going to wait 30 mins for IHOP,” Rodas wrote in text on the video.
She also begged the actor to “Pleaseee come back.”
The Huffington Post reached out to Adam Sandler’s publicist, bc it’s such a pressing issue, to see if the man in the footage is, indeed, Adam Sandler.
And wouldn’t ya bloody know it? The publicist confirmed that it ’tis Adam Sandler.
IHOP has since released a statement on the shocking incident, assuring the actor that they will happily accomodate him on his next visit.
“We love and appreciate our famous friends, and the beauty of IHOP is that for the past 60 plus years, we’ve welcomed everyone to pancake together under our blue roof,” said an IHOP spokesperson in a statement.
“While we weren’t able to serve Adam in this particular instance … we look forward to serving him on his next visit!”
To be fair, why should Adam Sandler receive special treatment at the pancake palace? Because he made some kinda funny movies in the ’90s and a bunch of shit ones since then? Back of the line, buddy.
