I use one of those wide scrapers from any diy store with the blade that looks like a razor blade & just swiftly cut them off flush & then fill the holes remaining

Easiest way would probably be to push them through then patch over the resulting hole. If you try to pull them out there's a chance more damage could be done.

run a sharp stanley knife around the bit that's protruding then fill over the hole.
