Just listened to the story on the recent Blockdigest episode. The TL;DR is in the title.
It's of course the mistake of the user to not being careful enough, but also negligence on part of Coinbase not to have any sort of warning or restrictions in place for sending bitcoin to a litecoin address (which seems like an easy and reasonable thing to implement).
But particularly negligent is to claim that the funds are not recoverable anymore, which is simply not true, and luckily, another Twitter user was able to help recover the funds successfully (worth around $ 2.5k). So the Coinbase support was simply either incompetent or just lazy or lying, which is all equally concerning, as such cases are likely not very rare with all the newbies coming into the space and Coinbase is one of the biggest fiat on-ramps into bitcoin.
