Repairing vinyl coated sheetrock


Hey guys,
I was going to repaint my bathroom and while pulling off a light fixture from the wall, I pulled a huge chunk of the vinyl from the vinyl coated sheetrock (I assume it's vinyl coated since it's plastic like). What I have now is white exposed gypsum. is there a way to reseal this effectively without replacing the sheet?

Is this in a mobil home?
About all you can do is use some wall paper paste and trying stick it back up.
Not going to be pretty.

Repairing vinyl coated sheetrock


Thanks joecaption for your quick response. It's a regular apartment. I think the way to go is probably to use joint compound, sand it down and then seal it with a primer. Anyone know of a pitfall to this approach?
