The mortified employee who turned Sandler away because of overcrowding posted the clip on TikTok and admitted in the post that she didn’t recognize the 54-year-old comedian.
Instead of getting upset, though, Sandler responded with a joke.
On Monday, he tweeted: “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.”
IHOP announced that it will be offering all-you-can-drink milkshakes at some locations Monday after a video of Sandler being turned away from a Long Island IHOP went viral last week.
That’s when IHOP stepped in to make it up to the “Saturday Night Live” star.
“You know what, @AdamSandler, you may be onto something here,” the chain tweeted on Tuesday. “In your honor, we’d like to declare May 10th, 2021 #MilkshakeMonday at IHOP. More sweet details to follow.”
IHOP released the details of the “Milkshake Monday” deal on Friday. Though the all-you-can-drink milkshakes will only be available at IHOP’s 19 Long Island locations from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, May 10, IHOP is also celebrating nationwide in other ways.
The restaurant chain said that it will donate $1 to the nonprofit Comedy Gives Back for every milkshake sold on “Milkshake Monday,” up to $50,000.
“We take our guests’ suggestions very seriously in an effort to continually shake things up and satisfy all palettes with our signature commitment to IHOSPITALITY,” Kieran Donahue, IHOP’s CMO said in a statement. “There is no better way to kick off the week and enjoy our craveable menu than with a house-made milkshake, or as many as you can drink.”
