I'm Facing a problem with Orphaned Terms, I cannot delete them from term store management tool under Managed Metadata Service Application.

Is there is anyway to clear it?

I try to delete them using powershell and I get this exception

This operation is invalid in the Orphaned Terms term set. The operation failed.
