Adam Sandler responds after going viral on TikTok for leaving an IHOP

Even Adam Sandler's "Click" remote can't speed up the wait at IHOP.

The actor and comedian is confessing after a TikTok of him walking out of an IHOP restaurant went viral.

Last month, TikTok user @dayanna.rodas posted a video of herself with a clown filter over her face writing: "Not realizing it's Adam Sandler and telling him its a 30 min. wait and him (of course) leaving bc he's not going to wait 30 min. for IHOP."

The short clip then shows Sandler on security camera with his daughter talking to the host with masks on before turning around and leaving the restaurant after the conversation.

The TikTok has received around 2.3 million likes so far and eventually caught the attention of Sandler, who tweeted about the viral video Tuesday.

"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," Sandler wrote.

Twitter users praised the actor for not revealing his identity in order to get ahead of the line.

"It's nice that you were treated like everyone else. Must not happen a lot. Seems like actors have it easier most of the time just because of who they are," one user responded to Sandler.

Another user wrote: "Bro that just shows your (sic) the coolest, because instead of throwing a fit and being like hey it’s me 'The Sandman', you restrained from using your fame."

One tweet in the replies of Adam Sandler's response defended IHOP with a reference to the Kelis song "Milkshake."

"Adam, you can't blame them. It would bring far too many 'boys to the yard' than any one @IHOP could handle."

USA TODAY reached out to Sandler's reps for comment.

Sandler inked a deal with Netflix to produce four movies for the streaming service. The first of which was the movie "Uncut Gems," starring Sandler as a down-on-his-luck jewelry showroom owner named Howard who is addicted to betting on basketball games.

Sandler still has two movies left in the deal after October's "Hubie Halloween," a feel-good Halloween movie featuring the comedian alongside Kevin James, Julie Bowen and Maya Rudolph.
