Removing broken links from sidebar in Lion

A very small post for people searching about this specific issue:

You’re trying to delete an icon/shortcut from the sidebar in Finder, under Mac OS X Lion/10.7.

Right clicking doesn’t work, because that folder does not exist, or maybe it points to a share using an old version of AFP or SMB that you can’t connect to, because some company that almost has the same name as a famous dog if you pronounce it in french is a bad company that doesn’t update the firmware on any hardware old enough to have a lot of important data on it.

What you need to do is hold command and drag it to Trash instead of doing a right click.
