Luke Dashjr: “It may not be safe to use Bitcoin if full nodes do not enforce Taproot”

In the following Twitter thread Luke Dashjr (who is a very prominent core developer) stated that currently only about 25% of full nodes are enforcing the new taproot upgrade. He says that if Taproot goes live without an economic majority of nodes enforcing then it may be “unsafe to use Bitcoin.”

Can someone explain the specifics of this situation and why it would be unsafe/complicated?
