Giving the middle finger (f*ck you) = SLANDER by deed

Petitioner’s act of pointing a dirty finger at complainant constitutes simple slander by deed, it appearing from the factual milieu of the case that the act complained of was employed by petitioner "to express anger or displeasure" at complainant for procrastinating the approval of his leave monetization. While it may have cast dishonor, discredit or contempt upon complainant, said act is not of a serious nature. (Villanueva vs. People, G.R. No. 160351, 10 April 2006, 487 SCRA 42)
