Leave it in place. Strip some more of the green insulation off and install a split bolt right next to it.
Why? It's listed for it's current use (as long as the proper size was used). I would have dressed the stranded a bit better to avoid the kink.

It may be listed for it's current use, but it sure as hell doesn't look like its crimped properly.

I haven't used these, but the burndy crimps im used to seeing, when crimped properly, look very neat and the die stamps a little number into the crimp to show it was crimped with the proper die.

We use these Burndy C-taps all the time. They work great when you need to tap the GEC for multiple service disconnects.

It's a T&B "C" tap. The tap and run sizes are stamped on the side of the tap along with the die color. The conductor sizes are specific. Definitely not used on the proper size conductor and most likely not crimped with the proper die.
Left tap is for #12 tap to 3/0 run, center is for #12 tap to 1/0 run and right is for #12 tap to #8 run.
