Very odd that a porcelain tile would crumble like that. These tiles are incredibley hard. The spacers should have been removed after the first 24 hours. There's no need to keep them in place for that long. The thinset might still be soft enough to remove the tile. If you can't pry it off, cut it with a grinder into sections and pop it off.

You might need to replace a section of drywall. It all depends on how dry the thinset is and your ability to remove the tile. The edges will be dry, but the deeper you go into the tiles middle, the moister it will be as the tile is so dense. The longer you wait, the harder it will be.
