An environmental protestor threw a cup of green custard in Peter Mandelson's face this morning.
"While I'm prepared to take my fair share of the green revolution on my shoulders, I'm less keen on it in my face," he said afterwards.
The incident occurred as the business secretary attended a low-carbon conference in London.
Plane Stupid activist Leila Deen was captured on film jerking a cup containing the green liquid upwards into Lord Mandelson's face.
"When democracy is failing you have to resort to any means necessary as long as it is peaceful and does not harm other human beings," she told BBC News.
"Peter Mandelson is the same person who effectively bullied Ed Miliband and other members of the Cabinet to accept a third runway that nobody wants, a third runway that no one was consulted on and no one is able to say no to.
"It's not right that someone like Peter Mandelson can stand up and talk about being green."
Speaking later where the incident took place Lord Mandelson said: "I don't think anyone should overreact. Ifs there's a security issue it's for the police and others.
"In a democracy people can have their say but I'd rather people said it to my face rather than throw it at my face."
Former deputy prime minister John Prescott responded to the incident this morning with a video on his blog.
The Hull East MP, who was once pelted with an egg by a demonstrator, took a hard line on the attack, suggesting the activists who threw the substance should have been arrested.
