i removed telegram using Paige Abshire's answer:

This Telegram app just installs a .desktop file, its icon and a folder where it saves its data:

Remove the folder with the Telegram and Updater file.

Then run:

rm -Rf
~/.local/share/icons/telegram.png \

~/.local/share/applications/telegramdesktop.desktop \

~/.local/share/TelegramDesktop
