Even if the feathered headband is a racist stereotype than even Disney did not use on her...

Let me guess : you're white, have never faced racism, consume media as it comes, and have never taken an interest in the issues those medias convey. You don't know anything about how Native Americans feel about how their culture is being represented (yet they do talk about it), but you're content to chime in "it's only racist if you think it is". They are offended = it's racist. Simple.
Feathered headdresses are sacred. It is not "decoration", it's not a pretty hat ; it has meaning for them, it is something that is earned. Let's stop putting it on every Native American's head as if it were their Native ID card !
Same goes for those who dress up as Natives : people who play dress up can remove that stereotyped clothing and go back to being "normal", but true Natives have to deal with racism and stigma of their culture every day, their identity is not something they can remove. Dressing up as a stereotypical Native (feathers and all) is disrespectful, it is racist.

Coming back to this picture : the addition of a feathered headband when Pocahontas didn't wear one in the first place is a stereotypical, racist misrepresentation of Native culture. "Racist" doesn't mean the artist meant to hurt anybody, but she played along with ingrained stereotypes that are hurtful to some people. This is a call out, not a condemnation. The headband can still be removed, the artist may apologize and/or just not do it again. We all have some stereotypes in us, they are ingrained by the culture we live in and the perception we have of other cultures. It doesn't cost a lot to just step back and ponder about what we may be doing wrong.
The worst thing to do is to just brush it off with a simple-minded opinion like "it's only racist if I think it is"...
