OSX Shell Error Operation Not Permitted

So while I'm working on getting more Apple devices configured I realized that I had to make a change to my shell script. So I lazily went and opened the shell script with TextEdit on OSX Mojave.
Once the changes are made and saved a "quarantine attribute" can (read this as does) get added to the file.
To confirm if this attribute is added to your file run
xattr -l /file/path/file.ext
To remove the attribute run
xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /file/path/file.ext
Obviously you'll need to use your file path and extension which in this case for me was
Hope it helps for anyone else who has to deal with Apple

Just used this again today, as another script I have had this attribute.
Not sure when the attribute was written to the script though. But it's working now.
This is the full error.
/bin/sh: bad interpreter: Operation not permitted
