It isn't even one issue.  Here's a post I recently came across that I
think sums up a lot off the issues:

I don't think that's true at all.  The debate rages on in a lot of
quarters, and a lot of technology professionals have only heard about
it recently, as the recent versions of the distros they use have
started to default to systemd (and as they looked into why a bunch of
crap broke when they installed it).  Even in debian's own camp, a
number of core developers have restarted the debate, and ultimately
some of the issues outlined in the post I linked are what has led to
the fork of Debain.
