if it holds air & has NOT mangled the bead wire I think you should be ok. I do not run BLs but everything I have ever heard is to yank the valvestems to evacuate/deplete ALL air prior to disassembly or you'll put your eye out?
I will defer to someone that has been running beadlocks to answer more than my suspicions .
'Might depend upon the tires make and model as well. What are those? What does the SPEC sheet layer diagram look like in the section that is damaged? Deep enough to structurally make it unsound right there?
<edit: TOYOs are pretty builtup in that area. I am gonna bet you'll be alright if , again, the wire bead core isn't broken and she retains air. Gonna be more of a b*tch to mount again with that tear. It is tough to tell the depth of damage from that image. Also, did the steel insert on the left hole fly out with the '"blew out"? >
