Removing Wallpaper from Vinyl Covered Gypsum Walls

The previous owners wallpapered over the vinyl walls and then ripped some off, down to the gypsum board underneath the vinyl without removal products. Should I use wallpaper removal products? How do I make the ripped area even? Right now it's only in a smaller bathroom, but they wallpapered the kitchen too. It is peeling, but I have been reluctant to begin removal without asking questions. I have successfully painted over vinyl walls that had not been papered and am satisfied with results.

You can skim the uneven areas with drywall compound. And if or when you remove.mix 4 oz of fabric softener in spray bottle with water spray let stand for at least ten- 15 min. Pull or scrap off.. I use a steamer sometimes....
