After Nicki Minaj called out Miley Cyrus during her VMA acceptance speech, calling her a "bitch" during the live show, one video made the rounds of the "We Can't Stop" singer's reaction.

One small problem: The video wasn't legit.

While multiple news outlets picked up the quick clip and posted immediately following the awards, MTV released their own version of what happened -- and it tells a very different story.

Instead of looking like a deer in headlights, Miley actually doesn't look all that shocked by Minaj's outburst, saying something into a dead mic before telling her, "We’re all in this industry. We all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate s**t. Nicki, congratu-f**kin-lations."

The best part of this video though: The reactions of Miley's family.

Billy Ray, Tish, Noah and Braison Cyrus are all seen sitting in the audience, smiling away (somewhat uncomfortably) as the two pop stars verbally went at it on stage.

So, having seen this video, do you think this was a real fight ... or totally staged? Sound off below!
