Payload of `nil` was passed to `api_response`; this is unsupported. If you want a blank
response, pass `''` (an empty string) as the payload. If this was the result of a `find_by`
(or similar Active Record method) not finding a record, you should use the bang version (e.g.,
`find_by!`) to raise `ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound`, which the REST controller will catch and
return an appropriate error response.
