Some asshat just gouged the hell out of it.

Is this something easy to remove? I've got some paint from when my bumper was painted, I could have it painted.

Is it easily removable?

Do you mean the little end cap that looks kinda like a little plastic nose? or do you mean the 8 inch long exterior of the handle itself? If the former, yes - you can remove it easily with a plastic prybar. (You may need to push gently skyward on the tiny release on the underside)

NO SERIOUS FORCE. Be wary of sudden slips with tools.

It's the 8" long exterior of the handle itself.

I suppose I can touch it up myself, but if it pops off easily it would be helpful.

Per the 2015 service manual it does NOT pop off easily. There is a detailed procedure. Doesn't look too bad but worth paying for a 72 hour service manual subscription if you intend to DIY or hire an independent bodyshop to do it.
