Server side event ServerMessage does not allow {}

When trying to pass a Json string in ServerMessage as suggested in your documentation the server returns a 500 error.
Error message is

[FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.]
System.Text.StringBuilder.AppendFormatHelper(IFormatProvider provider, String format, ParamsArray args) +11773471
System.String.FormatHelper(IFormatProvider provider, String format, ParamsArray args) +61
Infragistics.Web.Mvc.UploadModule.OnBeginRequest(Object sender, EventArgs e) +1392
System.Web.SyncEventExecutionStep.System.Web.HttpApplication.IExecutionStep.Execute() +141
System.Web.HttpApplication.ExecuteStep(IExecutionStep step, Boolean& completedSynchronously) +69

I guessed that you use String.Format internally and it's trying to parse the json object because that contains curly brackets. 
That does seem to be the case because I got it to work by manually escaping the brackets.
Version: IgniteUI 2016.2
This breaks:

public static void igUpload_UploadFinished(object sender, Infragistics.Web.Mvc.UploadFinishedEventArgs e){
   e.ServerMessage = "{}";

Adding this is a workaround:

e.ServerMessage.Replace("{", "{{");
e.ServerMessage.Replace("}", "}}");
