I would not snip it off unless it dies. If the plant seems too elongated, it may be that it needs more light. If you cannot provide this naturally, then you may need horticultural grade lighting to help it out. It is also very likely that a completely pigmentless sport has sprouted. Eventually, it will stop producing anything on that branch, and then can be taken off.
