Everyone was annoyed about the same thing during last night's Corrie

Ah, lads.

If there's anything worse than a murderer murdering somebody and getting away with it, it's a murderer murdering somebody and getting away with it and then proceeding to slow clap as someone else gives a statement to the press about the murder without actually mentioning the murderer.

Yeah, pretty grim.

How unfortunate then for Coronation Street fans and the general residents of Weatherfield that Pat Phelan did the exact above and nobody caught on to him.

A true miscarriage of justice if we ever saw one.

Pat, the notorious cold-blooded killer lest we forget, murdered Luke Britton last week via shooting him and setting his car on fire.

And last night, Alya gave a gut-wrenching statement to the local press in which she mentioned that Luke had been killed by racist businessmen who she and her boyfriend had been dealing with previously.

Incorrect information, we know.

However, the rest of the street remained blissfully unaware of this fact so they all went along with it.

Except for Pat Phelan who of course knew that he killed Luke and proceeded to slow clap as a mourning Alya gave her statement.

Charming.

Viewers were only outraged that Pat would be so bold, so harsh, so cruel, to do a bit of a slow clap while Alya poured her heart out to the press.

They took to Twitter to express their rage.

However, some others simply thought that the slow clap was, ahem, mildly hilarious on Pat's (and the writer's) part.
