From what I understand the Segwit2x people for some reason don't want BTC to work as it is and found a reason to fork from the chain.
The reason is the increase in block size and thus they have implemented the consensus for the new coin. I thought that increase in block size would benefit BTC and increase it's efficiency but I guess I was wrong. The Segwit2x members want BTC to run according to them only and that doesn't seem fair enough. I will support the current chain and want BTC to work the way it is.

First of all, everyone can suggest new changes to the code and if they get enough support, then it will be considered. You have to understand that it was designed to be like that, to allow for everyone to submit changes to the code. If only Core developers were allowed to submit changes, we would have had a dictatorship.

Many people feel SegWit2x is just a hostile takeover attempt from the competition. <Those who were on top and who decided to leave and now wants to be on top again>

Other people think SegWit2x is a sabotage attempt to divide the community and to weaken the support. ^hmmmmm^

I'm familiar enough now about why the core people dislikes 2X. But, why was this accepted in the first place? Was it hidden as part of the original SegWit and the core developers did not know about it?

It wasn't really accepted. The backers of the proposal are just bored. They have money and they want Bitcoin core to die.

For years there have been differences between bitcoin "industry" and "users."

At least with this hostile takeover attempt, it's right out in the open.
