A man who is already standing trial for racism offenses may have placed himself in an even bigger mess after he reportedly misbehaved in court on the same day of the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

The man was identified as Edson Nunes. The 23-year-old has been charged with contempt of court after he allegedly interrupted court proceedings or otherwise misbehaved from the dock at Uxbridge Magistrates Court.

Nunes was jailed on Tuesday, almost three weeks after pleading guilty to two charges of causing harassment, alarm or distress with racist abuse at Ealing, London's YMCA on September 14 and 16.

Among those hurled by the 23-year-old man include threatening, abusive or insulting words.

However, his case took a different twist on Sept. 19 when he made his mind known by lambasting the state funeral of the late monarch that was held on the same day.

Appearing before District Judge Deborah Wright, Nunes took the opportunity to share his personal opinions about the 96-year-old monarch who passed away while being surrounded by her loved ones at Balmoral Castle on Sept. 8.

“F*** the Queen, she’s a nasty f***ing b****,” Nunes yelled in court.

This resulted in him being under the 1981 Contempt of Court Act. He was then held in custody overnight. However, he allegedly apologized for his actions and the charges were dropped.

There was also another case of a man who could not accept the fact that Queen Elizabeth II is dead. He was charged with public order offense.

The man was identified as Muhammad Khan from Wood Green. The 28-year-old rushed to the Queen’s coffin as it lay in state and grabbed hold of the Royal Standard flag.

His case ended up getting adjourned for medical assessments. However, there was another 52-year-old man, Mark Hague, who was slapped with a £120 fine for a public order offense.
