Adam Sandler finally responded to the viral video captured the moment he was turned away from a Long Island IHOP.
The former “Saturday Night Live” star was praised online for his positive attitude after he and his daughter were told by a teenager in the restaurant that there would be a long wait to stay seated, prompting the star to leave politely the restaurant. The teenager shared a video of the short meeting on TikTok and noted how embarrassed she was at not having recognized the famous comedian and movie star at the time.

The clown filter was there to highlight her embarrassment for not recognizing Sandler wearing baggy shorts, a hoodie and a face mask to protect against coronavirus at the time.
In a follow-up post, Rodas also noted that Sandler at the time had a large beard that she had never seen him make public before.
