Is it considered rude to very light beep your horn if the lights green and the car in front of you is distracted?

No it’s not rude

It is rude and not recommended the horn is a warning instrument not for random use

Wait a few seconds before doing anything. There might be a reason you don't know about, such as a disabled pedestrian being slow about getting across the street. If it's more than a few seconds, then tap your horn, once, lightly. A long, obnoxious BEEEP, the second the light changes, is liable to get a person shot here in Dallas. Road rage is very common here. One of my pet peeves is when I've turned on my blinker to make a right turn (almost a block before the actual turn) to let the person behind me know I'm going to turn, and then when I slow down to turn, the driver behind gets right on my bumper and lays on the horn until after I've completed the turn.

Not if a few second pass and the path is actually clear. A car honked at me recently when I didn't make a right turn immediately when the light turned green. An elderly lady was crossing the street and the honker didn't see her. Or thought I should run her over? IDK but it was an aggressive honk and annoying.

Not at all. They should pay attention.

A light beep, AFTER a pause of a few seconds, is fine.

Not if you wait a few seconds before beeping. If you do it the second the light changes, you're being a jerk; some cars need a couple of seconds to get moving.

A friendly reminder is welcome as it gives the person maximum screen time to accomplish whatever task is so important,
Be certain he or she is not waiting for an emergency vehicle first before you toot.

A "light" beep? No.
A "angry New Yorker" LONNNNG honk? Yes.
