Fix wall? Don't fix wall? Before tile backsplash!

OK here goes...after living in this house for over 5 years we noticed that the wall in the kitchen shifts OUT. Vertically it is flat and the outward shift occurs over a 3 foot distance. In the attached pic it kinda starts at that left outlet and continues to the end of wall. You can barely make out the laser...but throught that 3 foot section it moves out about an inch.

I am tempted to leave it as is. I dont think it will effect the group lines for the tile. They are small tile (about 3/4 inch by 4 inches).

Is it a sin to just leave the wall as is? Part of me wants to fix it, tear out that section of drywall, add wood to the 2x4's and replace the drywall. The new drywall will have to sit on top of the new quartz counter. But the whole thing would get covered by the tile.

Thoughts? Tear our or leave as is. Like I said, we hadn't noticed it all these years. :-)
