Charlie Lee, the Litecoin creator, is known as one of the most honest developers in the cryptocurrency world. Indeed, he never shies away from any discussion on the hottest topics with the public and always tries to be open and honest about the problems. 

Now, as the hypothetical SegWit2x activation is becoming closer and closer, Charlie Lee shares his opinion on this subject on Twitter. The man talks about the SegWit2x activation and about the results of the poll that was conducted by him a bit earlier.

As shown, more than a half of the cryptocurrency enthusiasts don't support Bitcoin hardforking in November to double the blocksize.  

As soon as the Litecoin creator is concerned, the man goes on explaining why he is against the activation, as well. 

I am against Segwit2x hardfork in November due to 3 reasons: lack of urgent need, lack of replay protection, lack of consensus.

The man details that "if we have any of the 3 things I listed, then a hardfork is called for and would be fine".
