Default Removing persistent VPN notification on notification window?

Hey XDA. I must query your limitless knowledge. I've recently started using hotspot shield vpn, and I have two vpn icons. One is a system icon that I can't hide (it's the one with the key icon, that I want hidden) and one with the green shield (it's animated, and I would prefer to keep it.)

So, I'm looking for a way to hide the one with the key. I've searched for an XPOSED module but haven't seen one that does what I'm asking. Any ideas?
