Yes, but there are situations and clients where it is needed and a) learning how to do it and b) doing it well, are part of being a good front-end developer. Telling your client "no" because you don't like it or because UX/UI best practices declare it a poor choice IS EXACTLY a poor choice. And dropping immature opinionated negativity on someone's efforts to share and teach others? Also a poor choice.

Telling your client "no" because [...] UX/UI best practices declare it a poor choice IS EXACTLY a poor choice.

Well, but you should at least inform your client, that it is bad UX/UI and explain to them WHY it is that way and what the possible consequences could be, if they stick to their decision.
