American Sign Language: "back-stab"

Hmmm. Not a pleasant little sign.  But hey, a student asked me how to sign it and here it is.



While this sign could technically / literally mean "to stab someone in the back" it instead typically means "betrayal" as in, "I thought John was my friend but he gossiped about me behind my back."
