Another Sandler moment: Sandler appears to be enjoying a new surge of attention via social media. Last month, he was the center of attention in a TikTok video when a waitress at an International Pancake House on Long Island fired him because the restaurant couldn’t accommodate more customers. The waitress was unaware of Sandler’s fame until another customer pointed it out to her, but by then he was already gone.
After the video went viral, Sandler returned to the restaurant and tracked down the waitress. He later absolved her of any wrongdoing, tweeting: “For the record, I only left IHOP because the nice woman told me that the all-you-can-eat deal didn’t apply to milkshakes â.
International House of Pancakes is a subsidiary of Dine Brands Global (NYSE: DIN).
