Sandler was applauded last month for not playing the celebrity card when surveillance footage showed him politely walking out of an IHOP after the host told him the wait was 30 minutes. The worker, Dayanna Rodas, posted surveillance footage of Sandler's visit on TikTok
and lamented that she did not recognize the masked "Saturday Night Live
" alum and begged him to return.
The “Uncut Gems” star joked that he left because the restaurant didn’t have an all-you-can-drink milkshake deal
, but he later reunited with the host at a bottomless milkshake charity
event at the same Manhasset, New York
He's now a hoopin' Happy Madison who spreads joy on the playground.
