Miley might be pissed with her family but when it comes to protecting them she don’t take no mess. Miley Cyrus and mom Tish were enjoying a meal at California Chicken Cafe on Wednesday, with paparazzi stalking the outside of the dining establishment as usual. When they left, the paparazzi tried to get up close — and one went one step too far.

It’s hard to see exactly how hard they hit, but it’s clear that one photographer bumped into Tish, sending Miley into a rage. She chased him into a corner and unloaded a ranting defense of her mom’s honor, as the paparazzo tried, without success, to defend himself.

“Are you serious? You just hit my mom with your camera! You just ran into my mom with your camera. Don’t you ever do that again. You just almost hurt my mom. Don’t you ever even think about it!”

Here’s the fight...

It’s a coming together for Cyrus and her family, despite a lot of strife going on in the clan. In February, dad Billy Ray said that he feared for Miley based on recent scandalous behavior, and that the show “Hannah Montana” destroyed the family. He later apologized for the comments.

Billy Ray and Tish are currently going through a divorce, though it hasn’t stopped Miley’s career. On Saturday, she hosted “Saturday Night Live,” lampooning teen stars and her Disney Channel past.
