Question posted in the General Law category relating to North West

I borrowed a friend of mine my phone and he went through my chats and looked at the statuses, as he looked he came across a friend of mine who is bisexual who I defined as gay and asked if I communicate with him, I said yes and he went to the chats. He found emojis of hearts and started showing people and humiliating me in public. I wanted to know if I can sue and if I can press charges. He did not say I am gay or anything but he said that I was sending heart emojis to gay and made fun of me. What should I do?
