the act of clapping because you feel bad for the person(s) you are clapping for. It starts out sounding like a slow clap.
Guy 1: did you go to the convention center to see the glue presentation?

Guy 2: Yeah, but there wasn't alot of people in the seats, and the ones who clapped gave a courtesy clap.


This sort of clapping is seen at churches, schools, business meetings, etc.

when you know you have the clap but you sleep with someone anyway because you hate them, thus passing on the clap, courtesy of you.
Bro 1: Man, I slept with Kendra last night
Bro 2: Dude She is such a bitch! Why would you go there?
Bro 1: Don't worry man, I gave her the Courtesy Clap, she won't be back.
