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.
As we all know, Lee is not the biggest fan of the SegWit2x proposal. The man even has a particular tag in his nickcname on Twitter - [NO2X].
I am against Segwit2x hardfork in November due to 3 reasons: lack of urgent need, lack of replay protection, lack of consensus.
On October 27, Charlie Lee revealed that GBMiners, a major mining pool operator, has stopped signaling for the SegWit2x hard fork expected to occur in mid-November.
GBMiners (~2.5% of total BTC hashrate) stopped signaling for Segwit2x hardfork. First of many pools to realize the folly of this hardfork. pic.twitter.com/CEioRu2ktj

Former Coinbase executive considers this move to be the prove of the insolvency of SegWit2x.
It is also noteworthy, that earlier this month, F2Pool and Slush Pool, stopped signaling for the SegWit2x hard fork as well. Now, they seem to be skyrocketing.
Pools' hashrate list
With the withdrawal of support from F2Pool and GBMiners, the hashrate support for the SegWit2x hard fork in November has declined from 83.28% to around 66%.
