I have no idea why people are so nasty like that but the only thing to do is to give a hug and let your daughter work it out the best she can and let her talk about her feelings. I wish we could fix our children's problems but we can't. I ran in to a situation a couple of years ago where my daughter was best friends with a girl and I found out that the girl was the SD of one of my exes. I was suggesting for my daughter to make more than that one friend. I was never anything but friendly with the girl because it certainly wasn't her fault and she was a sweet girl, but I knew there'd be no outside of school play, no parties or anything like that. I imagine her parents felt the same. Either way, I suggested my daughter make more friends. I would explain that people talk and that's what's happened here, it's not her fault, and to make new friends and just always be who you are and the real friends will stay.
