The taboo of killing people who DC ..

So, I just played a game in which I killed someone who DC'd, it was a one-shot - me & my supp had some synergy for once and pressed all the buttons at once to kill them in under 0.2 sec. However, as soon as I realised they'd DC'd (basically as soon as I had pressed ALL the buttons) I instantly apologised in all chat just to receive a torrent of abuse for the remainder of the game being heralded as "the DC killer" from 3 different members of the enemy team. I appreciate that killing someone's who has DC'd is bad form, especially in a normal game, but is this kind of response really necessary, especially given the nature of the kill (Vayne appeared alone under tower, Sona RQAA, Cait AAEQAA with all the cancels).
