Spanish for "in a bad mood"?

Transparent Language offers another odd translation of the colloquialism estar de mala leche as "to be in a bad mood", whereas both Google Translate and SpanishDict return the literal translation, which is "to be in/of bad milk." Both prefer the Spanish phrase "estar de mal humor". Does anyone know how this is expressed in Mexico?

I have always heard it expressed as "esta de mal humor"
