I'd leave it - it may go brown and die (just the damaged bits, not the whole plant ) in which case they'll fall to the ground or you can remove them carefully without damaging any buds.
I'm sure the plant will throw out more new shoots to replace them
Perhaps a dose of Fish, Blood & Bone, which is a slow-acting fertiliser, will give it a bit of energy in order to replace the buds. Follow instructions on the pack.
