Throw no default value error even if we give value

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

A user of one of my product is using MySQL 10.7.3-MariaDB.

This is the table creation:

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS negativity_accounts
    reports VARCHAR(1024) NOT NULL

When my product run :

REPLACE INTO table (id, reports) VALUES ('my-id', '');

It throw error: "Field ‘reports’ doesn’t have a default value".

This request works with all mysql versions that I tested for multiple years, so what’s the new behavior and how can I fix it without breaking all others DB ?
