Physically, probably not.

However, if the computer is in the process of some software upgrade or normal shutdown procedures then there could be file corruption and subsequent problems.

That "someone" needs to use the applicable shutdown and power off process relevant to the computer being used.

There is no reason to unplug a power supply (aka a computer) under normal circumstances.

Why is that someone doing so?
