I accidentally setfacl's for an empty user so that all of my facl's have an unnamed user at the top:

# file: test.txt
# owner: friend
# group: kevinburke

How can I delete it?

If you mean the user::rw- entry, then these are permissions for the owner (here friend) and you obviously cannot delete this. Same for the group::r-x and other::--- entries
