I am sorry she is going through this, but as a parent, this is something he may want to ask himself. Is this "style" more important to him than the social development of his child. I am in no way saying your DH is a bad parent, and he IS young, but there comes a time when you have to start putting your childs needs and welfare before that of your own. Can he "tone it down" a bit?
I guess I am from a different time. I had my first at 19, and then I started to ask myself...what does the way I dress and carry myself say to others ie educators etc? It may not be fair that there is such judgement in society, but it is there non the less.
As for your DD, assure her you both love her, and kids can be mean, but that does not make what they say true...but I say, put HER first...consider what she is dealing with...look at all the stories in the news about kids being picked on who eventually turn on themselves. GL
