Is it safe to push pull the zoom on the 100-400 Mk2?

The zoom is so easy to engage by holding onto the lens hood.  Is this bad for the lens?  Do you always have to turn the zoom ring, or can you push and pull it (with the tension ring at the loosest)?

When I'm not playing birds, I'm shooting my accordion....or is it the other way around?
